It seems to be common knowledge that Alonso is the front-runner to be Liverpool’s next manager after Jurgen Klopp, whether it be with journalists, fans or the bookies.

According to the Daily Mail‘s Lewis Steele, the Reds are ‘prepared to go to war with Bayern Munich’ when it comes to snapping up their former player.

The report also states that Alonso is ‘not expected to be swayed by finances and will make his decision based on football matters’, which bodes well for Liverpool.

At this point, it would feel like a surprise if the 42-year-old wasn’t in the dugout at Anfield come the start of next season.
