Agent opens door for Liverpool’s international defender swoop

Jonas HectorJonas HectorLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern enjoying some cult-classics on the jukebox have had their spirits lifted even further by positive news on the transfer front.

Metro quote the agent of Cologne defender Jonas Hector, Rainer Derber, as confirming the player is ready for a move to the Premier League.

‘Koln reacted with the transfer of Filip Mladenovic to a possible sale of Jonas. We must talk to interested clubs in consultation with Koln but this will not happen before the end of the Bundesliga. He will not only benefit from a transfer, but so will Koln.’

The 25-year-old left-back, expected to play a part in Germany’s European Championship campaign this summer, has excelled during his four-years with Cologne but now appears ready for a step-up to a side competing in European football.

Should Cologne’s valuation of Hector, believed to be around £12m, be met, then the German outfit will not stand in the way of the player’s wishes.

Liverpool fans, which players need to follow after Hector? Let us know in the comments below!
