Bayern Munich are interested in Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, according to a report.
The Daily Star claim that the Bundesliga champions want Klopp to become their next manager at the Allianz Arena.
The report details that Bayern want their current boss Carlo Ancelotti to stay in charge until the end of the 2017-18 season at least, before making a move for Klopp.
Ancelotti was appointed Bayern manager in the summer and has won all eight of his competitive fixtures so far.
Klopp agreed a contract extension at Anfield in the summer that ties him until the Merseyside giants until 2022 as the American owners FSG made it clear he is the club’s star man.
The German has become a huge favourite with the Liverpool fans since his arrival last October and is beginning to impose his attacking philosophy on the team.
The Reds have been in fantastic form in front of goal this season, scoring 24 goals in their first eight matches and Saturday’s 5-1 win over Hull lifted them to fourth in the Premier League table.
Manchester City have maintained a 100 per cent start to the new season and many people feel Liverpool represent their greatest challengers for the title.
Liverpool will be wary of the interest from Bayern and will hope to repel any future offers.
Klopp has already managed in Germany with Borussia Dortmund and managed to win two league titles.
