Former Manchester United favourite Rio Ferdinand has identified Tottenham forward Son Heung-min as a player his old side should throw the book at to sign.
The Red Devils are linked with another Spurs player, Harry Kane, almost every transfer window, but to no avail.
And with Kane unlikely to be making the move to Old Trafford anytime soon, Ferdinand believes United should focus their attentions onto Son, a player who can ‘hurt teams’.
With the January transfer window suddenly on our doorstep, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be a busy man.
A centre-back, a midfielder and a winger are the areas United are supposedly looking at.
United had a major setback in the summer when their big money move for Borussia Dortmund and England star Jadon Sancho fell through, and have since seen their odds for any silverware this season at sites like MuchBetter wallet casinos deteriorate into nothingness.
The club also saw a move for Erling Haaland fail to materialise in recent times.
But with Son in fine form again this season, and Spurs currently locked in negotiations over a new deal for the South Korean, Ferdinand feels that the attacker would be a viable option for Ed Woodward and co.
“Son – if there’s a player I could take now who I feel is gettable, he’d be up there as one of my first picks,” said the former England defender on Rio Ferdinand presents FIVE, as cited by the Daily Express.
“Definitely in my top three.
“I love the way he plays – he directs, he hurts teams, he wants to score all the time. He he can go off both feet, he looks like a fantastic lad as well.”
