Jurgen Klopp could reportedly take the Germany job at the end of Euro 2024, with Julian Nagelsmann the favourite to take the role for the competition.

According to Sport Bild, the former Bayern Munich manager is open to taking over the national team but only for a short period of time, with Nagelsmann keen to return to club football.

As a result, Klopp could be lined up by the DFB to replace Nagelsmann if the 36-year-old was to take the Germany role on a shot-term basis for Euro 2024.

With Klopp’s contract with Liverpool expiring in 2026, it could take quite an effort from Germany to lure the Anfield boss back home to take over the national team job.

However, the role has always appealed to Klopp, and the Liverpool manager might be willing to leave Merseyside early in order to lead Germany to the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Indeed, depending on how Liverpool do this season, Klopp might be tempted to swap the Premier League for the international stage, with Nagelsmann potentially an ideal successor at Anfield.

Replacing Klopp might be the biggest challenge Liverpool will face as a club when the time finally comes later down the line, yet Nagelsmann could be an ideal candidate for the role.

The former Bayern and RB Leipzig manager is still one of the best young managers in the world and is a coach who could be suited for a club with a squad as young as Liverpool’s.

Moreover, Nagelsmann’s style will suit Liverpool’s squad, with the German coach also good enough to make a name for himself in the Premier League with the Reds.
