Meanwhile, Liverpool have been on the trail of Xabi Alonso with reports contact have been made with the Spaniard following Jurgen Klopp’s decision to leave.

The Reds reportedly consider the Spaniard as a the best hand to take over from Klopp due to his standout campaign with Bayer Leverkusen.

As per Fabrizio Romano, who confirms the interest of the two clubs on the Spaniard, Alonso has no release clause with Bayer Leverkusen but he has contract with the club till 2026.

Sources close to the highly-sought manager say he is open to an offer from clubs he ‘frequented as a player.’
