Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is once again being linked with a Summer move for Neven Subotic from Borussia Dortmund.
The impending ban that UEFA are likely to hand to Mamadou Sakho has seen Klopp look again at bringing Subotic to Anfield.
Klopp was linked with a January bid for the Serbian international but his successor at Dortmund, Thomas Tuchel, would not sanction a loan or permanent exit for the centre-back.
Subotic has been unable to hold down a regular place in the team at the Bundesliga club this season and is being linked with a reunion with Klopp at Anfield.
The twenty-seven year old has suffered a succession of injuries and a fresh start at another club may be seen as a positive step for the defender.
Bundesliga club Hamburg are also said to be monitoring his situation and could make an offer to take Subotic to the Volksparkstadion ahead of next season.
German newspaper Bild are claiming that Subotic could be available for as little as £4m this Summer, which could prove very tempting to Klopp as he looks to make changes to the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers.
Subotic has previously worked with Klopp at Mainz as well as Dortmund and a link-up at a third club does not appear out of the question.
But Hamburg would provide stiff competition for his signature after sporting director Peter Knabel spoke highly of Subotic.
“We have looked into this matter in the winter. Subotic is one of the most prominent players on our radar.” he said.
