​Former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is willing to cut short his current sabbatical if the right job comes along for him, according to ​Sky Sports.

Liverpool have been strongly linked with an approach for the charismatic German, who won two Bundesliga titles with his former club, as speculation mounts over whether Brendan Rodgers will be retained as the club's manager following a poor run of results and performances.

There has been no contact from Liverpool to Klopp so far, according to the story, but with Rodgers' position under duress and Klopp still out of work, the German is considered favourite to take the Anfield reigns by several bookmakers. 

48-year-old Klopp left his position at Dortmund at the end of last season to recharge his batteries, though he will look to get back into football at some point in the future. His agent, Marc Kosicke, told SPOX back in June that Klopp would not be concerned about taking charge at a club that isn't in the Champions League when he does return, and with the confession that the Premier League is "exciting" it could be an indicator that Klopp would consider the Liverpool job.

Kosicke said: “The Premier League is very exciting, and we do not only think about the top four because there are some other great clubs below them.”

Speaking on whether Champions League football matters to Klopp, he added: “It is always all about the challenge. When Jurgen signed for Dortmund there were other clubs who had better prestige and were in better financial mood at this time. Nevertheless he decided for Dortmund.

“He has the great ability to develop things. If he goes into a stadium, feels the energy and thinks that he can make a difference here, this could be more attractive to him than going with the big deals and aim for the treble.”
