·1 min

Liverpool Football Club has reached an agreement in principle with Dutch club Feyenoord for Arne Slot to become Jurgen Klopp’s successor. Slot, who guided Feyenoord to their second Eredivisie title last season, was a top candidate throughout Liverpool’s rigorous selection process. Xabi Alonso, another notable contender, ruled himself out by remaining at Bayer Leverkusen. Despite speculation surrounding other contenders, Ruben Amorim was not Liverpool’s preferred option due to tactical and philosophical differences. Slot expressed confidence in securing the deal, with further details expected to emerge soon.
