Report Names Fee Liverpool Must Pay to Appoint “Potential” Jurgen Klopp Successor

Sporting Lisbon’s manager Ruben Amorim has emerged as a potential successor to Jurgen Klopp as report suggests the fee Liverpool would need to pay to secure his services as Klopp’s replacement.

Ruben Amorim, aged 39, has been highlighted as a potential candidate for the Reds ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window. Since taking over as Sporting Lisbon’s manager in 2020, he is on the verge of securing his second Primeira Liga title.

Bitter rivals Benfica pose a significant obstacle for Amorim as he vies for his third domestic cup as Lisbon boss and fourth overall. Regarded as one of Europe’s most promising managers, the former midfielder is reportedly under consideration by Anfield chiefs to succeed Klopp.

Amorim employs a unique 3-4-3 system characterized by a high-pressing style, drawing comparisons to Klopp’s tactics.

However, doubts linger regarding his adaptability to a top league, compounded by his hefty reported £17 million buyout clause, which could pose a challenge for Liverpool.

According to TeamTALK, securing Amorim’s services may require a substantial financial commitment from Liverpool. The report suggests that FSG holds significant admiration for Amorim, while Chelsea had shown interest before appointing Mauricio Pochettino.

Another Primeira Liga triumph could attract attention from a Premier League powerhouse, contingent upon meeting the release clause. Despite this, the prospect of Amorim’s appointment may not excite Reds fans as much as the potential return of former favourite Xabi Alonso.

The Spaniard has distinguished himself as the top performer in Europe’s major leagues this season, surging to an 11-point lead in the Bundesliga. Bayern Munich is reportedly monitoring Alonso, especially with Thomas Tuchel departing this summer.
