Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp has made clear to the club’s hierarchy that he is not currently interested in penning a new contract.
Klopp’s current Liverpool contract runs until the summer of 2022 and the Reds’ chiefs want to tie him down to a longer deal to secure his future at Anfield.
The German tactician led Liverpool to the Champions League last campaign and has the Reds sitting on top of the PL table.
In spite of the success, Klopp is currently not keen on extending his contract and, according to The Athletic, has made his stance clear to the board.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has though promised he’ll honour his current deal, keeping him at the club for the rest of this season and the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.
It is unclear when Jurgen might decide whether he is prepared to stay at Liverpool beyond June of 2022, at which time he’ll have been in charge for seven years.
The German is likely to be an extremely attractive target for a host of clubs if he decides to end his time at the Reds when his contract expires.
Jurgen Klopp has thus far only managed in Germany and England in his managerial career.
In other news, Liverpool have identified Brighton & Hove Albion star Ben White as a possible replacement for Croatia international Dejan Lovren, according to Football Insider.
White is yet to make a league match for his parent club but has made an impression on loan at Leeds United in the early stages of the 2019-20 term, and the 22-year-old defender has not missed a single minute of Championship football for the Whites this season.
