It is not hugely surprising that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been linked to the Germany national team, but it would be a shock if he abandoned the Reds at this stage.
Understandably, Joachim Low’s steady position in charge of the Germans looked a little wobbly following their early exit from the World Cup in Russia.
They were one of the favourites to win the crown due to being holders, but they heavily disappointed and ended up finishing bottom of Group F, with Sweden and Mexico advancing.
Sky Bet have Klopp as 3/1 favourite to replace Low, while former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is second in the list at 7/2.
Klopp took over as Liverpool manager in October 2015, replacing Brendan Rodgers, and even though he is yet to guide the team to silverware, he has taken them to three finals.

The Merseyside outfit are becoming regular top-four contenders once again, and their style of play entertained the Premier League last season.
If Klopp were to leave to become Germany boss, it would be a huge blow to Liverpool.
Their fans have been posting their thoughts on Twitter.
He’s the favorite for every job going

Herr Klopp needs to come out and say if he’s interested or not should the role become available…. Uncertainty will destabilise activities in the transfer market for #LFC
