Klopp is now seen as the main target for both clubs if they decide to part ways with their managers, they believe the signing of Klopp would ease the luring of Van Dijk away from Liverpool.

For his part, Klopp has insisted he's happy at Anfield and should the time come to part ways he would be taking a break from the game.

Klopp powered Liverpool to stage one of the best comebacks against Barcelona in the Champions League last season on their way to lift the trophy in Madrid against Tottenham.
