Barcelona are eyeing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to take over at the Nou Camp, according to reports.

The German has been at the helm of a Liverpool team that sit second in the Premier League table with 13 wins in 20 games. Klopp has imbibed an attacking instinct in the team, backed by relentless pressing that has seen the Anfield side score 48 goals, becoming the league’s top scorers. This has not gone unnoticed.

Spanish Media outlet Don Balon has claimed that Barcelona are looking at the former Borussia Dortmund boss to replace their current manager Luis Enrique for the next season. Enrique’s contract expires at the end of the season.

The La Liga defending champions have not exactly hit peak form this season, and are three points behind rivals Real Madrid.

The man on the other side of Merseyside, Everton manager Ronald Koeman, is also believed to be an alternative. The Toffees currently sit seventh in the table, and the former Barcelona man could return to Camp Nou.

Jorge Sampaoli, Frank De Boer, Ernesto Valverde, Eusebio Sacristán, and Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel have also been linked with the job.
