Report: Liverpool want Klopp before Tottenham fixture, committee fate decided

Liverpool are to make an approach for Jurgen Klopp, according to reports.

Liverpool are to make an approach for Jurgen Klopp, The Telegraph report.

The Reds fired manager Brendan Rodgers after the 1-1 draw with Everton, a result which leaves the Reds with just three wins from their opening eight games.

Former Borussia Dortmund title winning boss Jurgen Klopp is Liverpool's 'Plan A', with The Telegraph reporting the club want to appoint Rodgers' replacement before their next Premier League game.

This is on Saturday October 17th at White Hart Lane, a fixture which could see the Reds leapfrog Spurs with an away win.

The international break gives Liverpool more time to appoint their new manager, and could have been a factor behind them sacking Rodgers when they did.

Transfer committee

The Telegraph report Liverpool have absolutely no plans to axe the club's controversial transfer committee, with the paper describing it as not even a possibility.

The committee has been a controversial topic of debate, with it unclear how much of a say Rodgers had in players brought in.

It is unclear whether this will affect Klopp's decision, but The Mail reported last week the German would only take the job if the committee was disbanded.
