Liverpool have been linked with the transfer of Koln defender Jonas Hector, but fans aren’t buying it.

The Reds have been linked with a summer move for the left-back, said Calciomercato, but they also face competition from Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Hector’s club are currently facing relegation from the Bundesliga and if they go down the 36-capped international could be available for as little as £13 million.

Bayern want to bring the German to their squad as a replacement for world star David Alaba, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona – wrote the report.

But, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will try his best to bring his countryman to Anfield in a move that would spell the end of Alberto Moreno’s Merseyside days.

Although the transfer rumour has led Reds’ fans to state that Hector better be prepared to wait his chance for first team action due to the form of incumbent left-back Andrew Robertson.

Robertson has been in excellent form since he took over duties from Moreno and has been hailed as the Liverpool signing of the season in these pages.

The former Hull City man was another bargain buy due to relegation and moved to Anfield for just £8 million following the Tigers’ drop down into the Championship.

After a slow start to his Reds career, the Scot has excelled and is now one of the first names on the defensive team sheet.

But the arrival of Hector would pose more serious questions. The German is an experienced international and at 27, is in the prime of his career.

With big clubs such as Munich and Juventus interested in the player, you can be sure he has quality behind him too.
