Report: Jurgen Klopp responds to Liverpool's managerial offer, contract details emerge

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly expected to join Liverpool by the end of the week.

According to The Telegraph, Liverpool are pushing ahead with a move to appoint Jurgen Klopp as their new manager on a three-year contract.

The Reds parted company with Brendan Rodgers on Sunday evening, following a 1-1 draw with Merseyside rivals Everton, and have now started the search for a new boss.

However, that search may not last very long, as The Telegraph report that former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has responded to Liverpool's offer to take the reins at Anfield - and has indicated that he wants the job.

Klopp, 48, left Dortmund at the end of last season after a superb seven-year spell at Signal Iduna Park, which included two Bundesliga title wins and a spot in the Champions League final against rivals Bayern Munich back in 2013.

Now, after just months away from management, Klopp looks set to return as The Telegraph suggest that he has told Liverpool he is willing to work under the club's transfer committee, and is expected to complete his move to Merseyside by the end of the week.

Contract details are emerging, with a three-year deal reportedly on the table for Klopp, who is now charged with the task of rejuvenating an underachieving Liverpool squad.

It's also stated that Klopp is expected to arrive in Liverpool in the next 48 hours, as he nears ever closer to becoming Rodgers' replacement in the Anfield dugout.
