Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is reportedly being lined up to replace Jurgen Klopp, whose future at Anfield remains doubtful.
According to the Mirror, there is a growing belief that Klopp will take up the chance to manage the German national side in the future, with Joachim Low's future still up for debate.
It is believed that the German Football Association sees the Reds manager as an outstanding candidate but they will only make an approach once Low's future has been decided.
Klopp has transformed Liverpool to one the most elite side's in Europe after winning the UEFA Champions League, Premier League and FIFA Club World Cup over the past two years.

Low has been in charge of the German national side since 2006 and lead the team to their fourth World Cup title in 2014, but their showing at the 2018 World Cup and UEFA Nations and another poor showing at the upcoming European Championship could spell the end of his tenure.
The Mirror claims that Reds owner John W. Henry and chairman Tom Werner have been paying close attention to Gerrard, who has led Rangers to top spot in the Scottish Premiership and a spot in the Europa League quarter-finals.
The reports add that Gerrard's appointment would get the backing of club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish as well as the Reds hierarchy.
