Son, 20,  has attracted interest from clubs right across Europe after a successful season with Hamburg in which he scored 12 goals in 33 Bundesliga games.

The South Korea international has one year remaining on his club contract, but Hamburg are eager to cash in on the highly-rated youngster.

Kreuzer confirmed that Son is likely to leave the Imtech Arena this week and responded to rumours suggesting Leverkusen are the favourites for his signature.

"We think the transfer will go through in the next few days," Kreuzer told Sky Deutschland. "I expect Son to join Leverkusen. You have got to look at the sporting value of the player on the one side, and the economic value to the club on the other."
