Klopp, Liverpool, and an Arsenal twist

Jurgen Klopp has been linked with Liverpool, yet could Arsenal become contenders to offer him a post?

Liverpool's poor start to the season combined with the terrible end to 2014/15 has increased pressure on Brendan Rodgers.

When it comes to a potential replacement there is a clear favourite, with bookies Ladbrokes making Jurgen Klopp 13/8 to take the Liverpool job as his next management role.

The Telegraph reported that Klopp wants to work in the Premier League, having left Borussia Dortmund in the summer, with Liverpool possessing the profile to tempt a manager of his calibre.

For now, Brendan Rodgers clings to his job, but Liverpool cannot wait forever. They are not the only high profile club in England whose supporters are growing restless.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is coming under pressure despite winning back-to-back FA Cups, with the Gunners failing to put together a credible title challenge or Champions League run for several seasons.

They have two consecutive losses in the Champions League, with Bayern Munich up next home and away, and face an early exit from the competition at the group stages.

Like Liverpool who face Everton this weekend, they have a big game against Manchester United which they cannot afford to lose.

If Arsenal continue to slump, then frustration will increase with Wenger, who did not sign a single outfield player in the summer.

They are a club who could attract Jurgen Klopp, and leave Liverpool regretting deciding to wait; which is all the more reason why the Reds should act now, rather than see the German commit his future to a rival instead.
