Xabi Alonso's appointment as manager is good news for Luke Chambers as he was about to join Leverkusen on loan Transfers

Jurgen Klopp is set to leave Anfield, and a list of replacements is being drawn up.With Michael Edwards returning to Liverpool, the movement for a new manager is expected to accelerate.

Among the many candidates, Xabi Alonso, who has led Bayer Leverkusen to a strong showing that kept absolute German champions Bayern Munich at bay, is the first choice, and his chances of taking charge in the Premier League next season are increasing.

According to The Mail, if Xabi Alonso were to take over at Liverpool, it would be a major turning point for 19-year-old defender Luke Chambers, who is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic.

The young left-back, who has also made Europa League appearances for Liverpool in the first half of the season, is currently challenging EFL League One for an opportunity to play this winter. He has been a regular in the starting lineup since joining the club and has started every league game so far.

The Preston born defender, who has started to break new ground at center back for Wigan, received interest from Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen during last summer’s transfer window, and the club tried to acquire him on a loan move.

In the end, negotiations did not come to an agreement and he decided to stay at Anfield, but it is no secret that the Spanish coach is in love with the player’s talent. Depending on the system and style of play from now on, he may be attached to Liverpool’s first team next season.

Scottish defender Andy Robertson, who has developed into a world-class left back in Klopp’s regime, is already 30 years old. His reserve, Kostas Tsimikas, will turn 28 this May and is not a young player by any means.

However, the expectations are high for the left back who will lead the new era of the club, and there is a possibility that he will develop rapidly under Xabi Alonso.

Will Luke Chambers be able to establish himself in the first team from next season onward?
