Jürgen Klopp has expressed an interest in managing in the Premier League according to Sky sources, though ideal-suitors Liverpool are yet to make a move for the German amidst rumours that Brendan Rodgers' time as manager is coming to an end.

Unsurprisingly, Klopp has been linked with a move to Merseyside due to the Reds' poor start to the new season under Rodgers.

Liverpool are not the only side rumoured to be interested, though. Interestingly enough, Newcastle, Sunderland and Aston Villa are all said to be similarly interested in the flamboyant manager.

Klopp achieved a win ratio over 56% at former employers Borussia Dortmund, leading them to six trophies in seven years, including two league titles.

His passion for the game is well publicised and he holds no fear in terms of managing elite players.

Liverpool and Newcastle fans would be very excited by the prospect of such a character managing their club, but it remains to be seen whether either show their hands at this early stage in the season.

From Klopp's point of view, he would need to be convinced that any potential suitor in the Premier League matches his own ambition.

That would need to be shown very clearly in financial terms, which could possibly rule Newcastle out, unless Mike Ashley has a complete change of heart in how he runs the business side of the club.

Liverpool, however, are more successful commercially, with further potential growth, but it remains to be seen whether they'll turn their backs on Rodgers who has, through good times and bad, conducted himself with professionalism and grace.

On the other hand, the prospect of bringing success to Anfield is clearly long-term and the owners may feel it is in the best interest of all concerned to draw a line under Rodgers' reign and appoint a manager who is proven at the highest level.
