The Reds have been tracking Jonas Hector since the arrival of manager Jurgen Klopp at Anfield. The German left-back has been one of Cologne’s star players this season.
A lot of criticism has been aimed at Alberto Moreno this season and especially after the final in basel.
Liverpool need a left-back that is aware of his defensive duties first and foremost, and competition for the left-back role is much needed.
Cologne are on the verge of signing another left-back, Konstantin Rausch from SV Darmstadt 98, this is after signing Filip Mladenovic in the January transfer window.
This could mean Liverpool are making in roads in their pursuit of German international left-back Jonas Hector who is valued at £12m and contracted to cologne until 2018.
German publication Bild claim that a deal could be done soon. Hector has been touted as a replacement for Spaniard Moreno.
