Germany coach Hansi Flick was in the stadium as FC Köln and RB Leipzig drew 1-1 in the Bundesliga last Saturday.

With RB Leipzig defender Lukas Klostermann the only current German international who appeared in that game, Flick also took a look at a handful of players from FC Köln.

"We are trying to make sure we are seen everywhere. We want to take a look at as many German players as possible, who are interesting for us," said Flick.

"Jonas [Hector] has made a very good impression in recent weeks, and I know that he is very highly regarded in Cologne because of his mentality and style of play. But at the moment, he's not a topic for me.

"Timo Horn had a good game, but we are perfectly positioned hen it comes to goalkeepers. Jan Thielmann showed good pace, but also made a few careless mistakes," said the Germany coach.
