Liverpool have stepped up their interest in Koln duo Jonas Hector and Timo Horn, according to reports.

Reds' German scout Matthias Hamann reportedly watched the pair in action on Sunday in the 2-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen.

And according to website Football Insider, scouts are currently busy compiling a dossier on both players to present to the club.

Hamann, the brother of former Liverpool midfielder Didi, has attended many of Koln's games this season for Jurgen Klopp.

The report adds the Liverpool boss has since added Hector to his summer shortlist as he looks to bring in competition for Alberto Moreno.
