Jurgen Klopp is preparing to launch a "come and get me" plea to Liverpool, with the departing Borussia Dortmund boss reported to be "keen" on managing at Anfield.

The German (47), who will leave Dortmund at the end of the season, is primed to realise a long-held ambition of managing in the Premier League and is believed to prefer Liverpool over possible moves to either Manchester City or Arsenal.

Liverpool's owners Fenway Sports Group are losing patience with boss Brendan Rodgers after a third successive trophyless season and see Klopp, who has won two Bundesliga titles, a German Cup and brought Dortmund to a Champions League final in 2013, as the ideal candidate to replace the Northern Irishman.
