The new Premier League season is less than two weeks away but teams from around the Premier League are still looking to add to their squads from the previous season to give themselves a decent chance in the upcoming campaign.
Liverpool, one of the many clubs that are still active in the market are desperate for a left-back who can replace Alberto Moreno in the squad.
The Spaniard was not impressive in the previous season and has not earned himself a place in the starting XI next season.
So the manager is searching high and dry for his replacement and has scouted a number of players. But it is understood that German international Jonas Hector is at the top of their priority list this summer.
The Anfield outfit were ready to offer Koln, Hector’s current club a deal around £16m which was rejected.
But recent advancements have seen the player reveal that he is not against a move away from the Bundesliga which has see Liverpool once again make a move for the German international.
It was believed that Liverpool were not ready to meet his asking price of £20m earlier in the transfer market but with the German club revealing that they will not let the player leave till his price is met, the Reds are pondering over meeting his price and are ready to make a bid for the German.
It is understood that Liverpool do not believe that the 24-year old is worth his price tag but the current situation in the squad that has put the manager under desperation for a left-back might see the club pay for him this summer.
Liverpool have been linked with other left-backs in Hull City’s Andrew Robertson, Aston Villa’s Jordan Amavi and PSV Eindhoven’s Jetro Willems, with no moves seemingly on the horizon yet so at the moment, a move for Hector seems to be the most sensible one for the English outfit.
They have already revealed that James Milner might play at left-back role next season but with money to spend in the bank, Liverpool should not miss out on the German, especially when he is available.
Do you think Liverpool should meet the asking price for Jonas Hector?
