Sorry Liverpool fans but it is not a big name player we are talking about here, but a member of Klopp’s technical team while he was manager of Borussia Dortmund.

Now according to ESPN German-American coach David Wagner is set to be reunited with his former boss at Anfield after parting company with the Bundesliga giants.

In a statement, Wagner said: ‘Borussia Dortmund are an extraordinary club with fantastic fans. In spite of that I seek a new sporting challenge after a great time at Dortmund.’

Wagner, who was Klopp’s best man at his wedding, had been in charge of the Dortmund Under-23 side since 2011.
