Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp ruled out moves to sign current Tottenham stars Son Heung-min and Richarlison

According to Spanish outlet El Pais (h/t Liverpool Echo), Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ‘flatly ruled out’ moves to sign Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min and Richarlison this summer.

It is also mentioned that the German manager rejected the chance to make a move for Robert Lewandowski. The 34-year-old Poland international left Bayern Munich to join Barcelona ahead of the current season.

As for Son, he stayed at Spurs and is playing some of his best football after sharing the Premier League Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah last season. Richarlison, meanwhile, left a struggling Everton to join us this summer for a fee that could reach £60million with add-ons.

Klopp was clearly in need of a centre-forward this summer, especially after Sadio Mane’s departure to the Allianz Arena. Roberto Firmino wasn’t in the best of forms coming into the new season, while the club also lost Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino.

Son and Richarlison would have been hard buys for LFC

They eventually signed 23-year-old striker Darwin Nunez from SL Benfica for a fee that can touch £85m. However, that could have been different had Klopp given the green light for the club to pursue other targets.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict how Liverpool’s potential pursuit of Son and Richarlison would have turned out. Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici would have recognised the importance of the South Korea international to our team and one can presume that they would have made it hard for the Reds to sign him.

Selling a star like Son to a direct PL rival in Liverpool would have been a virtually unthinkable situation for Spurs fans. As for Richarlison, he played for Everton.

That sentence is enough to make any potential transfer almost impossible. The Brazil international is also not in the good books of LFC fans and any move to Anfield may not have gone down well with the Liverpool faithful.

He has had a great start to life at Spurs and has showcased importance in his back-to-back starts under Conte this month. Richarlison assisted a goal in our 2-1 win over Fulham before scoring a brace to down 10-men Marseille in the UEFA Champions League group stage fixture.
