A newspaper in Bosnia has claimed that Jurgen Klopp and Bosnian coach Zeljko Buvac have agreed to take over at Liverpool from Brendan Rodgers.
It's been claimed today that Rodgers will lose his job in charge at Anfield if the Reds lose to rivals Everton today, and Klopp is being potentially lined up as his successor.
The German boss has been out of the game after leaving Borussia Dortmund, who he guided to two league titles and a Champions League final, last season.
An ‘exclusive’ report from Bosnian news outlet Pravdabl claims that both Klopp and Buvac, who worked together at Dortmund, have already been approached to take over from Rodgers and that a deal is in place should the Nothern Irishman be axed.
Liverpool have had an uneven start to the Premier League season but they claimed a morale-boosting 3-2 win against Aston Villa last weekend, although they could only draw against Sion in the Europa League.
The pair have agreed a three-year deal according to the source, although it's not clear how reliable the publication is.
The pressure is on Rodgers to get a result today, with Liverpool currently ninth in the table ahead of today's game. Liverpool have a fine recent record against Everton and Rodgers is confident of getting a result.
"We will always take the favourites tag,' said Rodgers. 'We are Liverpool. We are expected to do well. When you are playing at this club you want to play in these type of games so hopefully we can get the right result."
