Jurgen Klopp is expected to jet into Liverpool on Thursday to finalise a three-year deal with the club, Goal understands.

Klopp has been identified as the Reds's primary target to replace Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked at the weekend following the club's 1-1 draw with Everton.

Goal understands that Klopp will travel to the city via a private plane to pen his agreement, and the Reds are confident of finally unveiling him on Friday.

Liverpool have twice attempted to secure Klopp's services on previous occasions, and talks to secure the German have been encouraging, with the Anfield hierarchy believing that the 48-year-old can lift the mood around the club and entice the best out of the current playing squad.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach is also believed to be keen to bring his former assistant Zeljko Buvac and coach Peter Krawietz with him to Anfield.
