Bayern Munich join the hunt for Jonas Hector
Bayern Munich target Jonas Hector from FC Koln to boost their defensive options.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Bayern Munich have joined the hunt for Koln left-back Jonas Hector.
The Germany international joined FC Koln from SV Auersmacher on a free transfer in July 2010. The 27-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2021.
Hector has played 183 times for Koln since signing from Auersmacher, scoring five goals and creating ten assists in that time.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Germany.
His record for Germany is also impressive. Hector has scored three goals in 35 matches for Germany at senior level.
Bayern Munich are in the market for a new left-back when the transfer window reopens.
The German champions have built a reputation for recruiting talent from within Germany, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Bayern Munich are hoping to challenge on all fronts next season and they need a big squad for that. Signing Jonas Hector would be a step in the right direction for them.
According to the Calciomercato, ” The reigning Bundesliga champions are in the process of identifying potential replacements for David Alaba, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona at the end of the campaign. However, it will not be easy to lure Hector to Allianz Arena given the fact Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has not given up hope of luring him to Anfield before the start of next season. Meanwhile, Juventus directors Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici see him as an alternative option should they fail in their pursuit of Matteo Darmian, who is wanted by Napoli and Roma too.”
