How Liverpool Search For Jurgen Klopp Replacement Could Be Boosted By Bundesliga Club

Liverpool search for Jurgen Klopp replacement could potentially be boasted by Bayern Munich.

According to latest reports, Liverpool may have just received a huge boost when finding a replacement for Jurgen Klopp.

At the end of the season, Klopp will conclude his eight-year tenure, sparking the ongoing search for his successor. Speculation has swirled around ex-player Xabi Alonso as a potential candidate.

Meanwhile, Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen squad recently equaled the German record for the longest unbeaten streak, boasting 32 consecutive games without defeat. Additionally, they lead the league by eight points and have advanced to the semi-finals of the German Cup and the Last 16 of the Europa League.

Alonso’s team’s season-best victory against Bayern Munich propelled them to seize complete dominance in the title race, while also increasing the pressure on manager Thomas Tuchel. However, what might be the rationale behind the potential sacking of the former Chelsea boss, and how could it help Liverpool?

As it stands, three candidates are in contention for the Munich job: Xabi Alonso, Zinedine Zidane, and former manager Hansi Flick.

Sky Sports News reporter Florian Plettenburg has disclosed Bayern’s intention to retain Tuchel until the summer before making any hasty decisions. There have even been reports of former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær being considered as an interim option if Tuchel’s tenure worsens.

Alonso is among their prime targets, with Plettenburg revealing him as their ‘Plan A’ for the summer. However, the club are cognizant of Liverpool’s interest in Alonso.

Flick is also on the shortlist, having previously enjoyed significant success at Bayern, including delivering the Champions League in 2020. Despite being out of work since departing from the German national team, Plettenburg claims he is not a strong candidate due to interest from the Premier League and his preference for a long-term project.

Lastly, there’s Zidane, who hasn’t taken on a managerial role since departing from Madrid in 2021 following his second stint with the club. The Frenchman is highlighted as a major target and is ready to commence work. Bayern Munich are said to admire his wealth of experience, with hopes that his influence could positively impact the club’s performance on the field.

It is a promising news for Liverpool as Bayern emerge as their primary contender for Alonso’s recruitment in the upcoming summer transfer window. Alonso currently holds the lead as the favourite among bookmakers to succeed Klopp.

The potential dismissal of Tuchel could grant Liverpool an unhindered pursuit of Alonso, given his reluctance to depart mid-season. Bayern’s significance in the equation arises from a disclosed agreement with Leverkusen, permitting Alonso to opt for Real Madrid, Liverpool, or Bayern.

Nonetheless, there remains a possibility that Alonso opts to remain, driving his youthful squad towards a Champions League campaign, prompting Liverpool to explore alternative options.
