Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is lining up a move for yet another Bundesliga star in the shape of Hoffenheim defender Niklas Sule, report the Daily Mail.
The German tactician has already commenced a raid on his homeland having landed Schalke defender Joel Matip and reportedly nearing moves for Bayern Munich playmaker Mario Gotze and Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius.
Having managed Borussia Dortmund to great success until last season, the 46-year old will know the Bundesliga inside out.
During his opening eight months a Anfield, defensive frailty has been a sewing motif as he looks to further stamp his authority onto the side ahead of his first summer in charge.
The 20-year old central defender has an imposing physical stance and will help cover for the likely departures of Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure.
The former is believed to be a target for Turkish outfit Besiktas, while the latter is out of contract on Merseyside.
Sule is a German under-21 international and could form a formidable partnership with the aforementioned Matip.
