Former Germany manager Hansi Flick is reportedly hoping to succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager this summer. Xabi Alonso is the leading contender to become Reds boss at the end of the season, though other out-of-work coaches are monitoring the situation closely at Anfield in the hope of receiving a call.

Klopp announced in January that he would be stepping down as Liverpool manager at the end of the season as he felt that he was ‘running out of energy’ in the job. The ex-Borussia Dortmund boss revealed that he felt it was his responsibility to make the decision over this future as he was never truly at risk of being sacked due to his reputation at the club.

Numerous managers have been linked with the summertime vacancy as a result, with the Anfield outfit scouring the market for suitable candidates. Sporting’s Ruben Amorim and Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi have both been linked with the position, with Julian Nagelsmann a consideration as well.

Bayer Leverkusen boss Alonso remains Liverpool’s top target though, having witnessed their former midfielder guide the club to 21 games without a loss in the Bundesliga. The Spaniard has remained coy on the situation, though many feel it is likely that he takes up the role.

If Alonso does opt against joining Liverpool though, Flick is among those who would be keen to join the Reds, according to the Daily Mirror. The 58-year-old ‘dreams’ of managing a Premier League outfit and is hoping to be approached for the Merseyside role.

Flick had held talks with Tottenham in 2021 but those discussions were unproductive, though it has only fuelled the ex-Bayern Munich boss’ desire to manage in England further.
