Liverpool are reportedly preparing a £10million bid for highly-rated Cologne left-back Jonas Hector amid claims Alberto Moreno will be allowed to return to Spain in the summer.
The Reds are on the lookout for defensive options, and Jurgen Klopp is reportedly now ready to raid his homeland for Cologne’s Hector.
He’s valued at £10million by the Bundesliga club, and The Sun claim a move could be on the cards in the summer, with the Reds having sent scouts to watch him in action in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg.
Hector mainly plays as a left-back but can also do a job in midfield.
The 25-year-old is a full German international, with 10 caps to his name.
Moreno joined Liverpool for £12million in the summer of 2014, but it’s probably not until this season that he can consider himself a regular at Anfield.
The player has made 33 appearances for the club this season, having fallen out of favour under previous manager Brendan Rodgers, but the player admitted in December that he’d find the lure of Real Madrid ‘hard to resist’ if the club followed up their reported interest in the three-times capped Spain international.
