Hamburger Morgenpost claims that the Premier League side are readying a bid of around €10.5 million for HSV forward Heung-Min Son.
The problem is that the Bundesliga club are not interested in selling one of their most prized asset, especially as the player has only recently established himself as a first team regular at Imtech Arena.
Heung-Min Son is enjoying his new role at the club and is currently not interested in leaving the Red Shorts.
