Jurgen Klopp is now less than 2 months away from leaving Liverpool. And The Kop fans still do not know the identity of the next person to sit in the “hоt seat” at Anfield.

Ruben Amorim

Ruben Amorim will certainly be the most sought-after coach in Europe this summer. Not only Liverpool but Barcelona are also particularly interested in the “captain” of Sporting Lisbon.

The 39-year-old strategist has a release clause worth 13 million Euros with Sporting. This is a significant barrier for Barca because of financial limitations. Meanwhile, Liverpool is ready to meet this number if requested.

Retiring at the age of 32 and then leading Casa Pia and Braga respectively, Amorim confirmed his talent by defying all odds in his first full season at Sporting. He and this team won the Primeira Liga championship in the 2020-2021 season.

Julian Nagelsmann

Talking about bright young coaches, Julian Nagelsmann couldn’t be a more ideal role model. A coach at Hoffenheim at just 28 years old, Nagelsmann then enhanced his reputation with RB Leipzig before moving to Bayern Munich.

Despite winning the Bundesliga championship in his only full season at Bayern, Nagelsmann was suԀԀenly fired nearly a year ago. This strategist is currently leading the German team and heading to EURO 2024.

The German team improved steadily during Nagelsmann’s short reign but his contract will expire after EURO 2024.

Nagelsmann said he wants to return to lead the club, regardless of the German team’s performance this summer. At that time, Liverpool will emerge as the top candidate. However, the possibility of Bayern also making another shоcking move cannot be ruled out.

Ange Postecoglou

When thinking about Jurgen Klopp, this is not only a great tactician but also a great personality. Ask any Celtic or Tottenham fan about Ange Postecoglou and the answer is likely to be similar to Klopp.

Since arriving in London nine months ago, Postecoglou has breathed new life into a club filled with pessimism, much like Klopp did at Anfield in 2015. Success at Celtic proves that Postecoglou can completely confront facing pressure in the Premier League.

Although he has not been with Tottenham for long, leaving London will be a difficult decision for Postecoglou. However, the allure of leading Liverpool could tempt this strategist, especially when he once revealed that he supported The Kop during his childhood.

Simone Inzaghi

Simone Inzaghi is leading Inter Milan to another successful season. Having won the Coppa Italia three times as a coach and reaching the Champions League final last season, Inzaghi is aiming for his first Serie A championship in his coaching career.

14 points ahead of arch-rival AC Milan and with 8 rounds remaining, Inter will almost win Serie A this season. Inzaghi extended his contract last September with Inter to commit his future to 2025. While Italian media said that negotiations on another new deal were progressing well, there was also information about interest from Liverpool.
