Insider claims Liverpool ready to make eighth summer signing
Liverpool are ready to make a bid to sign Jonas Hector this summer, according to Emaneuele Giulianelli
Liverpool are lining up a transfer bid to sign Jonas Hector from Cologne this summer, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.
Writing in his column for Tribal Football, Giulianelli claims that the Reds are prepared to make a transfer bid to bring the German right-back to Anfield as Jurgen Klopp considers making his eighth summer signing.
The same report claims that Cologne will demand a transfer fee of £22.5m for the defender, who featured for Germany at Euro 2016 earlier this summer.
The story also states that Hector is keen to join the Merseyside outfit and link up with Klopp ahead of the coach’s first full season in charge at Anfield.
Liverpool have been linked with a host of players throughout the summer transfer window and have already signed seven new faces this summer.
The Reds are gearing up for their first full campaign under Klopp after his appointment as the club’s new manager following Brendan Rodgers’ dismissal back in October.
