South Korean could leave this summer.
Hamburg have admitted that star asset Son Heung-Min may very well be sold this summer, according to talkSPORT.
The talented 20-year-old has been a target for a number of clubs this summer including Premier League sides Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Borussia Dortmund, and though they insisted at first that he would be going nowhere they have now backtracked and admitted that they may be forced to cash in on him.
Heung-Min has impressed this season by bagging 11 goals in 32 appearances for the Bundesliga side.
Speaking after the club’s 1-1 draw at home to Wolfsburg on Sunday, the club’s sporting director, Frank Arnesen revealed how he has struggled with negotiations over a new contract for the South Korean as his current deal expires next year.
“If we cannot extend Son’s deal, we have to sell him,” Arnesen said.
The player is currently valued at £11.5 million but he could be available for just a fraction of that price should the club fail to convince him to sign a new agreement.
Heung-Min joined Hamburg straight out of high school and has scored 19 goals in 74 appearances since breaking into the first team in 2010.
