Liverpool know they face pressure from the German FA to keep hold of manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Mirror says Klopp has committed his long-term future to Liverpool until 2024, but Germany are lining him up as their ideal successor to Joachim Low.
Klopp is reportedly himself interested in taking charge of Germany in the future – seeing it as a natural development in his career.
Low’s contract with the national team expires in 2022, the same year Klopp’s previous deal at Liverpool was set to run until.
Liverpool, however, will be desperate for the German to create a dynasty at Anfield after bringing the glory days back to the club.
