Former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has agreed a deal in principle to become Liverpool manager, according to reports from the Mirror.
Klopp has already been in talks with Reds owner John Henry and is set to meet the club’s hierarchy on Wednesday to finalize his arrangements ahead of his move to England.
The 48-year-old has already agreed to a three-year deal in principle with the option to extend it for an additional year, with just little details to be sorted as he meets chief executive Ian Ayre.
And it looks like the appointment will be concluded and announced this Friday, with Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann claiming that the German is the perfect candidate to take over the role at Anfield.
He said: “The place has been like a morgue for a long time now, and it needed a lift from somewhere and that’s why the change of manager was a logical thing to do.
“The expectations and the mood couldn’t be any further down than it is at the moment at Anfield, so it is a great time to come.
“I don’t think with his appointment Liverpool will become title contenders overnight but you need to have a lift from somewhere and I think he can do this.”
Klopp has an impressive resume following his seven year tenure with Dortmund, in which he guided the BVB to two Bundesliga titles, one DFB-Pokal, and a Champions League runners-up medal.
