The Reds are being linked with the charismatic German manager in recent weeks as the pressure continues to build on current boss Brendan Rodgers.
Klopp is the first-choice candidate to replace Rodgers among Liverpool fans after his impressive seven-year tenure with Borussia Dortmund, winning two Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012, as well as guiding the club to the Champions League final in 2013.
However, the 48-year-old has not been contacted by Liverpool officials.
The news brings a huge boost to Liverpool supporters, who want Klopp to take the job at the Merseyside.
Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted on social media to the news that Klopp could be the next BOSS at Anfield.
