Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Brendan Rodgers to become the next Liverpool manager, after reports emerged that Reds owners Fenway Sports Group are keen to speak to the Swansea boss regarding the vacant role.

Roberto Martinez had been the favourite to succeed Kenny Dalglish at Anfield, but Rodgers is now odds on at the bookies as the former looks increasingly likely to miss out on the job.

Martinez was in Miami last week to hold talks with FSG about becoming Liverpool manager, and Wigan chairman Dave Whelan had given the Spaniard until Thursday to make a decision.

The 38-year-old was initially expected to announce his future on Tuesday, but it now appears Martinez will not become the next Liverpool boss.

Rodgers, meanwhile, has already once rejected the opportunity to meet FSG, with the Northern Irishman keen to avoid a drawn-out interview process and appear disloyal to Swansea.

However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Reds owner John Henry would still like to speak to Rodgers, and the 39-year-old may be tempted to meet the American if he is on a final shortlist.

Rodgers is now 1/2 with some bookmakers to replace Dalglish, who was sacked almost two weeks ago.
