Hamburger SV have confirmed they might have no choice but to cash in on star forward Heung-Min Son.
The highly rated forward has been the subject of interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund, and he is widely expected to leave the club in the summer transfer window.
Son has a contract until June 2014, which means HSV chiefs may be forced to sell their prized asset if he does not sign a new deal by the end of the season.
Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen is hoping the player will sign a contract extension, but admits they have to listen to offers due to club’s serious financial difficulties.
“If a club should come to us, we will listen (to their offer),” Arnesen told Hamburger Morgenpost.
“But, it’s not our goal to sell Sonny – we wish to extend.”
Hamburger Morgenpost believes an offer in the region of €15 million would prove sufficient to lure the South Korean away from Imtech Arena.
Heung-Min Son joined Hamburg as a youngster from FC Seoul and went on to make 61 Bundesliga appearances for the club, scoring 17 goals in the process.
