Cologne and Hamburg are chasing Liverpool attacker Milan Jovanovic.
The Sunday Mirror says the Serbian striker has failed to fire at Anfield and is one of the men Roy Hodgson is expected to move on in the transfer window.
But the Bundesliga outfits are both aware of his form for his country and believe he could thrive in Germany.
Jovanovic was one of the players that looked unimpressive during Wednesday's Europa League bore draw with FC Utrecht.
He managed to hit the bar with one long-range drive but disappeared out of the game and was subbed.
The hitman has yet to score a Premier League goal for the Reds in his four top- flight starts.
