Three players that could follow Jonas Hector to Liverpool this summer

With every passing moment, Liverpool fans are getting more and more nervous that their team might have to start the 2016/17 season with Alberto Moreno as their first choice left back.

The Spanish full back has a disastrous season last year, looking poor defensively and suffering a number of crucial mistakes that lead to conceded goals and demoralising defeats.

The usually-supportive Liverpool faithful appear to have lost their patience with the Spanish defender, with many DEMANDING that Jurgen Klopp find the new side a new left back.

Well, it looks like their prayers have been answered; with numerous reports, including this one by The mirror, suggesting that the club are set to bid for Germany defender Jonas Hector.  And so Liverpool fans can breath once again…

Even more good news for Liverpool fans; he might not be the only man on his way to Anfield over the coming weeks. The club continue to be linked with a host of stars, and as we near the start of the Premier League season many of the deals appear to be coming into clear view.

So here are THREE players that could follow Jonas Hector to Liverpool…

Mattia De Sciglio

One target that Liverpool are reportedly after is another full back; AC Milan star Mattia De Sciglio.

Crucially, De Sciglio is able to play on either side of the Liverpool defence; which would go a long way as to suggest why the club are seemingly chasing both Hector and De Sciglio at the same time.

Offering Italian defensive prowess, De Sciglio impressed in Serie A Last season.

According to The Independent, Liverpool have bid for the young defender, with Klopp seemingly keen to wrap up deals for both defenders shortly.

Though it does make little sense in the narrative of the deal for Hector; it seems that both deals are definitely on the table.

Joao Mario

Joao Mario was a standout performer at this summer’s European Championship, and he has as a result attracted interest from across Europe.

Chelsea were thought to be the front runners for the midfielder’s signature, but it appears that Liverpool also retain interest in him.

The club reportedly bid between £30m and £40m for the talented player, and whilst there has been no confirmation of the deal; the interest is definitely concrete.

Keep an eye on this one.

Lucas Moura

The rumour that just won’t go away.

Lucas Moura to Liverpool is a transfer that a few months ago seemed unlikely, but all signs are pointing towards the side having legitimate interest in the Brazilian star.

Moura has typically failed to hold down a regular starting spot with PSG over the last few years, and with rumours suggesting that he is keen to try his hand at the Premier League; Liverpool could be a perfect fit.

He was recently described by Sky Sports as the clubs most likely transfer, and given that the rumours have persisted for months; could this deal actually happen?

Country to what common sense would suggest; it definitely has weight!
