Liverpool are weighing up move for Hamburg defender Dennis Aogo, according to German daily Bild.
The Reds have been alerted of the player’s potential and they are reportedly looking to lure him to Anfield.
And with the defender likely to be available for mere £2.5 million, the Reds are expected to try and wrap up the deal in the January window.
The 26-year-old has managed to kick-start his career while on loan at Schalke, and the Miners have the option to turn his loan deal into permanent move at the end of the season.
However, the transfer will fall through if Aogo fails to agree personal terms with the Bundesliga side, meaning that Liverpool can still snatch the defender from under Schalke’s noses.
The Miners have recovered well from the slow start to the season, winning four of last five matches, and they are available at 9/10 to achieve a top 4 finish.
