According to The Athletic, the Sporting CP boss traveled to London and held talks with the Hammers to replace David Moyes.

Reacting to the news, former Red, Jamie Carragher believes that now, Roberto De Zerbi of Brighton is favorite to take the Liverpool job.

The Anfield legend wrote on the X:

“Richard Hughes wanted De Zerbi at Bournemouth, so he must be the favorite if this is true. Ornstein doesn’t get much wrong tbf!”
