A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Wednesday morning.

Liverpool are getting closer to announcing former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp as the successor to Brendan Rodgers at Anfield according to several reports in national media.

The Guardian reports that Klopp is expected on Merseyside on Thursday to finalise terms having been offered a three-year contract to take over the job at Anfield.

The Daily Mirror reports that Klopp has already outlined his vision to owners FSG, saying he can do the same thing to Liverpool as he did to Dortmund - where he managed to take them from a mid-table side to winning two consecutive Bundesliga titles, and made an appearance in the Champions League final.

The Liverpool Echo suggests that things could be concluded with in the next 24 hours, but say they understand there will be announcement today.

It seems that it is not a question of if Liverpool land Klopp, but a case of when. He is expected to bring two members of his backroom staff from who worked with him at Dortmund in Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz.

Away from the club's pursuit of a new manager, and Reds striker Danny Ings sat out England training yesterday after he picked up a foot injury in Sunday's Merseyside derby draw at Goodison Park, ESPN reports.

Ings managed to score the opening goal against Everton after picking up the injury but has been determined not to be kept out of England duty after receiving his first senior international call up.

The Reds forward, along with two other members of the squad, are expected to be monitored before England take on Estonia at Wembley on Friday.
