FC Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn has echoed comments made by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, insisting he is unaware of any interest from the Merseyside club. Reports in Germany claimed the 22-year-old shot stopper was being considered as a possible replacement for Simon Mignolet, whose performances almost routinely come under scrutiny at Anfield.
German daily Bild said Horn could be available for as little as €9m (£6.7m) due to a release clause in his contract, but Klopp told a press conference on 6 January he is satisfied with his options in goal.
Having heard Klopp's comments, Horn reiterated there has been no contact between him and the Premier League side. "I read something in the media. Jurgen Klopp has already said everything, there are no concrete offers and I do not concern myself with it," he told Cologne's official website. "I am a FC Cologne player and concentrating fully on my task here."
Liverpool have also been linked with an ambitious move for Barcelona shot stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen by Catalan-based newspaper Sport. But while Klopp is hoping to strengthen his squad during the January transfer window, he insists finding an alternative to Mignolet is not something he is considering.
"We have some problems at this moment but thank God not around the goalkeeper position so everything is OK," the Liverpool boss said. "It's how I said plenty of time on the goalkeeper position and the situation is more than OK, we are satisfied. I know both goalkeepers.
"Simon Mignolet is a really, really, really good goalkeeper. Number two in Belgium – or number one we will see – but maybe number two at the European Championships. It's a big football country in this moment so he's had a good education in all parts of life, especially goalkeeping. I spoke a lot with John Achterberg and things like this so we have solutions in our on squad."
