This news will probably be music to the ears of most Liverpool fans today.
Alberto Moreno had a shocker last night in our Europa League Final defeat to his former club Sevilla, but it seems like we could be bringing in an immediate upgrade soon.
Cologne are closing in on Darmstadt’s left sided player Konstantin Rausch, which according to Mirror journalist Alex Richards, paves the way for their left-back Jonas Hector to sign for Liverpool this summer.
Köln are closing on a new left-back (Konstantin Raush), freeing Jonas Hector to join Liverpool. A bright spot on an otherwise grey day. #LFC

Hector starts for Germany and will do at this summer’s European Championships, and said back in April that he’d be tempted at the opportunity to work under Jurgen Klopp (via Sky Sports).
The Daily Star, among other more reputable publications, claim we’re battling Arsenal for Leicester City’s teenage left-back Ben Chilwell, but we’d be disappointed if the youngster was the only player in this position we signed this summer.
Hector is decent going forward but takes pride in his defending, something we badly need injected into the side. Hopefully Emre Can can have a word with him and also Mario Gotze as the Germany squad meet up for the Euros.
We hope this rumour has legs.
