Liverpool has reportedly reached an agreement with Eredivisie team Feyenoord for Arne Slot to take over from Jurgen Klopp.

Slot is set to become the new Liverpool manager after Feyenoord’s season ends, as he has already expressed interest in joining the club.

Klopp announced earlier this year that he would be leaving Liverpool at the end of the current season.

Slot has been with Feyenoord since 2021 and helped them win the league title last season.

His team is currently in second place in the league and recently won the Dutch Cup with a 1-0 victory over Nijmegen.

Speaking to TNT Sports in an exclusive interview about Slot potentially taking over as Liverpool’s manager, Klopp said:

“What I like about it, if you say that he [Slot] really wants to be manager here – I like that a lot,” he said. “I think that’s exactly that’s the way it should be. I like the positivity around it, what people tell me – if he would be the next manager, they would be happy. Very good style as well.

“This is a sensational club that deserves a manager full of energy, full of knowledge, plays really good football. That’s what I know about him. I don’t know him personally. But I know his team is playing really good and exciting football. I liked it a lot when I watched it.

“I’m happy the better the hands are the club will be in for the next years, the better it is for me because I will follow everything and will watch it from wherever in the world.”

Liverpool had also thought about hiring Ruben Amorim from Sporting Lisbon and Xabi Alonso from Bayern Leverkusen. However, Alonso publicly announced that he had decided to stay at his current club instead of joining the Premier League.

Liverpool will next face West Ham in the Premier League as Klopp’s team aims to keep up with Arsenal and Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title after losing 2-0 to Everton earlier this week.
