It is too early to discuss whether Xabi Alonso will be Liverpool's next coach...Italian journalist clarifies Transfers

Jurgen Klopp, who revived Liverpool from the doldrums and led them to numerous titles, has decided to step down as manager at the end of this season, ending his contract early until 2026. In an interview, he cited his inability to maintain energy as the reason for his departure.

The current buzz is the search for a successor. While the names of young coaches such as Robert de Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ruben Amorim are reported daily, Xabi Alonso, who leads Bayer Leverkusen, is reportedly the main target.

Georg Holznerk of the German newspaper Kicker updated the progress of the battle from the perspective of Bayern Munich, who are also trying to sign the Spanish conductor, and reported that negotiations with Liverpool are moving forward.

“Coach search at Bayern: There is whispering in England, according to Kicker has learned that Xabi Alonso is already in advanced talks with Liverpool and that staying at Leverkusen has not been ruled out for a long time. But Bayern will give Liverpool everything.”

“In addition to Zinedine Zidane, Hansi Flick and Sebastian Hoeneß, Unai Emery is also being watched by Aston Villa. He is well known to Bayern, having knocked Munich out of the CL with Villarreal two years ago.”
