Alonso took on a relegation threatened Bayer Leverkusen side and completely transformed them in no time.

With half the season gone, the Die Werkself are top of the Bundesliga, unbeaten, and pushing Bayern, who have won 11 league titles in a row. Already, he is the second highest paid manager in Germany at £5m a year.

So, it is not surprising that as per reports (The Mail), the 42-year-old legendary Spaniard is the leading candidate to secure Liverpool move to replace Klopp.

The news source have mentioned that Alonso has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid when Ancelotti’s future was up in the air.

However, the Italian boss recently extended his stay at the Bernabeu, leaving the former Red with a clearer path to return to Anfield.

Danny Murphy believes, Xabi Alonso would be the perfect man to take the place of Klopp. The ex Liverpool star stated:

“It’s a dream job for someone because they get to inherit a squad which is young, hungry and talented. In fact, the timing might work out perfectly, with Alonso’s emergence as a phenomenal leader at Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen. It seems a perfect fit.”

Have your say – Who would you want to replace Klopp at Anfield?

    Klopp has taken Liverpool and made them into a very accomplished team. They haven’t had the big budgets and look at what happened at Chelsea with the money spent and mediocrity in the league. Now the new manager must get the most out of his team and by all accounts Alonso has proven this. Had Gerrard put Villa into 4th place we’d be saying the same thing, go back 3-4 years and it was social media talk of Gerrard after Klopp.. now look. So Alonso has proven his worth a lot more than Gerrard has. I’d hazard a guess and say Alonso will be our new Paisley…modest, quiet, unassuming, not into the headlines, but letting his players do all the talking, exactly as Bob did.
