Liverpool look to lure Hoffenheim star

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's extensive search for a new manager is over after Brendan Rodgers agreed a three-year deal to take charge at Anfield.

According to the Daily Mail, the Swansea boss will be officially announced as Kenny Dalglish's replacement within the next 24 hours, after he informed his current chairman Huw Jenkins of his desire to move to Merseyside.

Reds owners Fenway Sports Group have made no secret of their recruitment process, as Wigan manager Roberto Martinez also flew out to Miami to be interviewed for the prospective job. But, despite declining Liverpool's initial advances, Rodgers now looks set to be unveiled as the club's new boss.

Swansea will be due compensation in the region of £5million for the loss of the man who has brought unrivaled success to the Liberty Stadium in his two years in charge.

One of Rodgers' first acts as Liverpool manager could be to hijack the south Wales club's move for Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson. Having spent the latter part of last season on loan with the Swans, the Icelandic international is poised to complete a permanent £6.8million switch.

But, Sigurdsson is yet to complete a medical meaning the deal is incomplete, and Liverpool could pounce by luring the 22-year-old to Anfield.
