Germany international defender Jonas Hector admits he could be swayed into sealing a switch to Liverpool if manager Jurgen Klopp was interested in his services, according to the International Business Times.
The Premier League side, who currently sit ninth in the standings after suffering a 3-2 defeat to the hands of Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium last weekend, are expected to be in the market for a full-back this summer as left-back Jose Enrique is tipped to leave Anfield, whilst regular first-team player Albert Moreno has not been convincing enough for the German boss’ likening.
The 25-year-old, who has 10 international caps for his country and is expected to feature for the reigning world champions at Euro 2016 later this year in France, has provided three assists in 28 appearances in all competitions for Bundesliga outfit FC Koln so far this season.
Hector, who has caught the eye of Germany national team coach Joachim Low with his impressive displays this term, has been tipped to secure a move away to a ‘bigger’ club in the short-term future.
The left-back, who is rated at around £12m, was quoted in the Liverpool Echo saying, “I think what we have to do at FC Koln is enough. I also have with the national team a big tournament ahead of us.”
However, when questioned about the possibility of Klopp trying to lure him to Anfield in the future, Hector admitted, “Then I would start to think about it.”
