Liverpool are keen to resume talks with Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers over their vacant managerial post, according to the Daily Mail.

The Swans boss initially ruled himself out of the running for the Reds hot seat, preferring instead to focus on his job with the south Wales club.

But, Fenway Sports Group (FSG) are thought to be keen to discuss the role with Rodgers again, as they consider all possible options in their search to replace Kenny Dalglish.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez was believed to be the favourite, as the Spanish manager flew out to Miami last week to hold talks with Liverpool's American owners.

Latics chairman Dave Whelan is desperate to keep hold of Martinez, who is also linked with the Aston Villa vacancy, and the Wigan boss has said he will confirm his future plans on Tuesday.

But Reds skipper Steven Gerrard gave his backing to Martinez should he get the job. "I'm aware Roberto Martinez has been talking to the club but all I've heard about him is positive," said Gerrard.

"If he is going to be the manager, he's got my full support."

Other candidates in the frame include former Anfield boss Rafa Benitez, ex-Chelsea manager Andre-Villas Boas and Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp, but Martinez and Rodgers appear to be the front-runners at this stage.

According to reports, the Reds are now reportedly ready to return to Rodgers, although it remains to be seen whether the Northern Irishman is willing to accept an approach this time around.
