Jurgen Klopp will bring former Borussia Dortmund assistants Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz with him to Liverpool, according to reports.

The German is understood to have agreed a three-year deal to take over from Brendan Rodgers at Anfield and is set to waste no time in stamping his authority on the club.

Buvac, nicknamed "The Brain", is a former team-mate of Klopp from their time at Mainz and they worked together at the club as manager and assistant later down the line.

They linked up again when Klopp took the Dortmund job and he took his most trusted ally with him to the Westfalenstadion.

Meanwhile, video analyst Krawietz has no playing experience but comes highly rated by the Liverpool boss-in-waiting and is set to follow suit.

It is also thought the former Dortmund chief will consider raiding his old club's playing staff.

Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has already moved to wish Klopp well on Merseyside, while Marco Reus, Neven Subotic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have all been linked with switches to join their old manager.

As well as getting his coaching in staff in place early on, the 48-year-old is reported to have already planned a meeting with some of his players' agents.

Most are currently away on international duty but he is said to be keen on getting to know his players and their representatives as soon as possible.
