The Reds’ Northern Irish boss is now winless in his last four Premier League games following a 1-1 draw with newly promoted Norwich at Anfield on Sunday, which has increased the scrutiny he’s under after the club’s below par 2014/15 campaign.
Sections of the Merseysiders’ fan base are already calling for change, with ex-Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp a popular candidate, but reports claim that Ancelotti has already been approached.
It’s understood that Liverpool officials have contacted the Italian’s camp to assess his willingness to take over at the club.
The former Chelsea manager has been out of work since being axed by Real Madrid at the end of last season.
He boasts an impressive CV, which includes titles in Italy and France as well as three Champions League wins.
