'His agents have spoken to Liverpool': German source clarifies Niko Kovac links

One of the least expected names rumoured to be on Liverpool's list of potential successors for Jurgen Klopp is former Bayern head coach Niko Kovac.

The Croatian manager was sacked from his last three jobs after less than two full seasons. He has been out of work since his departure from Wolfsburg in March.

Despite his checkered record, however, he is indeed looked at by Liverpool, according to German reporter Christian Falk.

"Niko Kovac was most recently released in Wolfsburg. Suddenly he is considered a candidate for Liverpool FC," Falk writes for CaughtOffside.

"He himself publicly downplays the interest. However, I learned that his agents were actually in England. It is also true that his agents have spoken to Liverpool FC.

"The result: Kovac is not one of the top candidates at Liverpool. But it is also true that he is on an extended list of candidates who are not yet an issue but which the club is monitoring."

According to other reports, Sporting manager Ruben Amorim is the frontrunner for the job, but nothing is set in stone yet.
