Having reinforced his defense by signing players like Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Ragnar Klavan, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to further strengthen the back line by signing a left back.
The Mereysiders have been linked with numerous fullbacks this summer and once again German star Jonas Hector is in the limelight. The Reds have been looking to sign him for quite some time and now reports suggest that the Kaiser is close to finally joining Liverpool.
According to Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli (Tribal Football), Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign the FC Koln defender who is set to move to Anfield this summer.
Emanuele further claimed that Jonas wants to play under the management of Klopp and the German boss is ready to meet Koln’s asking price of 22.5 million pounds ($30 million).
Last season, Hector featured in 32 league games and provided 4 assists. He was a key member of the German squad at the European Championships and started every game for his nation. He has played 20 senior games for Germany and scored one goal.
