Liverpool forsøger at hente Alonso

Liverpool have reportedly made an approach for Xabi Alonso.

Alonso, who has led unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga, is the bookies' favorite to take over at Anfield when Jürgen Klopp steps down at the end of the season.

The article states: "Xabi Alonso has been touted as Liverpool's next manager for months - and the Reds have now made the first move for their former midfield maestro.

"The media claims that Liverpool football shirts have begun contacting Alonso. The Reds have reportedly contacted Alonso's agent, Inaki Ibanez, in an attempt to bring Alonso back to Anfield.

"But while Alonso is the favorite to succeed Klopp, the same report describes Leverkusen as relaxed about the situation. They expected interest in Alonso given the fine work he has done at the club and there is hope internally that he will choose to stay.

"Intriguingly, another of Alonso's former clubs in Bayern Munich is also lurking in the background. Leverkusen's title rivals have already confirmed they will part ways with Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, and Alonso is their No. 1 target.

"With Leverkusen looking certain of Champions League football next season, there is a chance that Alonso will opt out of both clubs and stay here. But a return to Liverpool training jersey has always been part of his long-term plan."
