Hamburg Fans - Hamburger SV

Liverpool have been linked with signing Dennis Aogo.

The Express claims Liverpool are considering making a bid for Aogo, so what do fans of the Reds need to know about him?

Here are five facts to bring you up to speed...

1) Dennis Aogo is a 26-year-old left-back who plays for Hamburg in Germany, but is currently on loan at Schalke.

2) He has 15 appearances this season including four in the Champions League, and has two assists to his name.

3) His present contract expires in 2015, so Hamburg are going to be open to a deal next summer rather than lose him on a free the following season.

4) Aogo is on the fringes of the German international squad, with 12 caps to his name, the last of these coming in a friendly defeat to USA in June.

5) He made his Bundesliga debut back in 2004 at just 17-years-old in a 4-0 win for Hamburg against Freiburg.
