Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp could tempt me to leave Cologne - Jonas Hector

Germany left-back Jonas Hector has said he would think again about staying at FC Cologne if he was approached by Liverpool.

Hector -- set to win his 11th cap against England in Berlin on Saturday -- is expected to be his country's first-choice left-back at the European Championship in France in June.

He is under contract at Cologne until 2018, but said in an interview with Eurosport that if Reds manager Jurgen Klopp were to contact him, he could be tempted to reconsider his plans.

"You always have to consider whether you are ready to take the next step," the 25-year-old said. "But at the moment I am not thinking about it.

"I think what we have to do at FC Cologne is enough. I also have with the national team a big tournament ahead of us."

Asked whether a call from Klopp could sway him, Hector said: "Then I would start to think about it."

Hector also said he was relishing testing himself in Germany's forthcoming friendlies against England and Italy.

"For me, these meetings are good tests against strong teams," he said. "I am looking forward to the two matches in Berlin and Munich."
