The battle for RUben Amorim is even more intense as Newcastle is eager to interview him Transfers

Liverpool, looking for a replacement for Jurgen Klopp, who announced his retirement at the end of the season, has a list of commanders around 40 years old who have proven themselves in Europe, including Xabi Alonso, Julian Nagelsmann, and Robert de Zerbi.

Ruben Amorim, who currently leads Sporting, is also on the shortlist, and the Portuguese is said to be the top priority if the club fails to sign a Spanish leader. Liverpool is not the only club interested in the coach, who is only 39 years old and continues to grow in reputation.

In addition to Bayern Munich, who are also targeting Xabi Alonso, and Chelsea, who are in the midst of a frenzy over the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Newcastle United are also eager to arrange an interview with Eddie Howe in case he leaves the team, GIVEMESPORT reported.

Last season, Newcastle made a breakthrough by finishing third in the Premier League with the right reinforcements, but this season, the team has been in a slump. The team has been affected by a number of injuries, but Bruno Guimarães and others are still going strong, and Anthony Gordon is also having a breakthrough season.

The team’s disappointing record in the Champions League, where they were eliminated from the group stage, has raised questions about the English coach’s ability. There have been reports that he may be sidelined at the end of the season, and a major transfer of the manager may be in the works.

Amorim is likely to leave Portugal at the end of the season, but which club will he step up to?
