Liverpool make move for Rodgers replacement, contract offered

Liverpool are on the verge of offering Jurgen Klopp the vacant managerial job, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Reds sacked Brendan Rodgers on Sunday following a string of poor results that ended with a 1-1 draw with close rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby.

It had previously been believed that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) were not keen on offering Klopp the job due to him wanting full control at Anfield, with them previously backing Rodgers because of his willingness to work within a highly-structured system, which included a transfer committee.

But the club’s desperation for Champions League football has led to them putting their reservations about the former Borussia Dortmund boss aside, and are now ready to offer the German a three-year deal to replace Rodgers.

The London Evening Standard are reporting that Klopp’s assistant Zeljko Buvac has told newspapers in Bosnia that Klopp has already agreed a contract to take the Anfield vacancy.

But although it is still unclear whether this is the case right now, it looks increasingly likely that Liverpool have already identified Klopp as their number one target and are preparing to make a move to bring him to Anfield.
