A selection of the latest stories in the media surrounding Liverpool Football Club this Tuesday morning.

Liverpool seem to be getting closer to naming Jurgen Klopp as Brendan Rodgers' successor according to several reports in the media.

The Liverpool Echo is amongst those who report that the former Borussia Dortmund manager is expected to be officially appointed to the role by the end of the week, with the German said to have signalled his intent to take over at Anfield, and will sign a three-year contract at the club.

He is expected to bring two members of his backroom staff from his time at Signal Iduna Park to Merseyside in Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz. Klopp had previously been approached by the Reds in 2012 but informed Liverpool he wouldn't be leaving the post he held at the time. 

The Daily Express reports that the futures of Gary McAllister and Sean O'Driscoll - who were both brought in during the summer as part of an overhaul of Rodgers' backroom - with the Times suggesting they are likely to leave the club as well - with Alex Inglethorpe expected to remain in place as academy director.

The Times has reported that Klopp's imminent appointment on a three-year deal could be an opportunity for the coaching set-up to be restructured, which could open the door for former players such as Steven Gerrard to return to the club in a coaching capacity should they wish to.

Both the reports in the Echo and the Times suggest that a compensation package of around £7 million is expected to be agreed with Rodgers - who had two seasons to run on his contract prior to his sacking following Sunday's 1-1 Merseyside derby draw with Everton.

With regards to the transfer committee which has become much maligned among Liverpool fans recently, the Daily Mail reports that Klopp will want the final say on transfers as part of his deal to take over at the club, but combined with the reports from elsewhere, it would suggest that Klopp will have his wish in a similar model to which he worked with during his time at Dortmund.
