Bayern Munich are the latest club to be linked with a possible move for Hamburg striker Heung-min Son after the comments from their former president Franz Beckenbauer.

The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with the Express reporting that Arsenal and Tottenham had emerged as the leading candidates to sign the talented striker.

However, it seems as though they will face competition from one of the biggest clubs in Europe as Bayern Munich legend Beckenbauer made it clear that he had been impressed with the performances of the South Korea international.

"He's a super player," said Beckenbauer, as quoted in the Express. "I really like the way he plays, fast and dynamic."

While Beckenbauer no longer works for Bayern, his influence is still felt at the club and there is a feeling that Pep Guardiola will be looking to make some signings when he takes over as manager from Jupp Heynckes in the summer.

Bayern would be a huge draw for the young striker as they are just three wins away from claiming another league title and are once again through to the latter stages of the Champions League.

Tottenham will hope that they can compete by also offering the chance to play in Europe's elite competition next season as they attempt to secure a top four finish.

With just two senior strikers in Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, manager Andre Villas-Boas may well be looking to bolster his options in the summer and Son has been heavily linked with the north London club.

Tottenham will also hope that they hold greater appeal then bitter rivals Arsenal who are currently seven points behind them in the table and are by no means certain of delivering Champions League football for next season.

Arsene Wenger has been promised funds in the summer but it will be difficult to persuade Son to make the move to Arsenal, if Spurs or Bayern follow up their interest.
