Premier League giants Liverpool have tried and failed to lure Cologne's Bundesliga ace Jonas Hector to Anfield.
Jonas Hector is tipped to leave Bundesliga outfit Cologne - but should Everton rival Liverpool for the German's signature?
Rumours that Liverpool are looking at a left-back seem strange given the perfectly capable option the club already has in Andrew Robertson.
The FC Koln left-back is a reported transfer target for Liverpool.
The German left-back's situation is not concerning his manager Peter Stoeger.
Barcelona reportedly hold no interest whatsoever in signing Jonas Hector, who has been linked to Premier League sides.
The Reds had been linked with a move for the Cologne full back.
Liverpool's need for a left-back is far greater than Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a player they simply do not need.
Tottenham are reportedly in the race to sign Koln left back Jonas Hector.
The defender, who have been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, was impressive in Germany's win over Ukraine.
Reported Liverpool targets Jonas Hector and Mario Gotze were in action as Germany beat Ukraine on Sunday evening.
Players linked with Liverpool, Everton and Arsenal are likely to be in action in Group C's games.
