Liverpool transfer news
That’s according to Sunday Times journalist Jonathan Northcroft, who has taken to Twitter to reveal that outgoing Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is among a list of potential candidates to take the job next season.
However, Northcroft has also stated that Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to be sacked. He reasons that our owners are simply considering all of the possible candidates who could come in and take the position, should it become available.
LFC assessing manager options before season review. Klopp one of them. Rodgers may v well survive but LFC seeing who’s out there.

This stays very much in line with what we reported earlier, via the Daily Mirror. They claimed that Rodgers’ future will hinge on whatever he tells his superiors in the next two weeks, with Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon set to lead a debrief of our disappointing campaign.
Gordon will be demanding answers about our sixth place finish and looking for a proof that Rodgers is the right man to lead us forward. Nonetheless, the possibility of his departure will not be up for discussion.
This news is all extremely frustrating for us Liverpool fans right now, as we yearn to find out the fate of our manager. Ideally, a decision will be made either way in the very near future, to allow either Rodgers or Klopp to push forward with their plans for the new season.
Earlier today, the Mirror also suggested that James Milner might be having second thoughts over a move to Liverpool, due to the uncertainty surrounding Rodgers’ position. If we don’t make a decision soon then we risk this scenario reoccurring throughout the summer.
The time to either stick, or twist, is now.
