German Bundesliga expert Raf Honigstein suggested Borussia Dortmund manager, who announced he would be leaving at the end of the season, would struggle to turn down an offer if Liverpool came calling, who lost 1-0 at Hull City in the English Premier League on Tuesday, despite Klopp having made it clear that he was not interested in a move to Anfield.
The Reds haven’t won in three matches and with just one goal in over four hours of football, the pressure is slowly mounting on boss Brendan Rodgers.
There has been speculation that Klopp could replace Rodgers before the start of next term.
And while the Signal Iduna Park’s head coach will understandably have a host of potential suitors, Hoginstein claims Klopp would struggle to turn down an offer if the Merseysiders came calling.
“Speaking to people close to him in November, where it was already on the cards that he might move to England, it was understood he wanted to move to an established Champions League club,” he told talkSPORT.
“He’s also realistic enough to know that there aren’t that many likely offers from top four clubs coming in.
“At the same time, in so far as a emotional connection, and an ideal fit, Borussia Dortmund to Liverpool is the closest resemblance you can find. The fans are a huge part of the club, they also sing you’ll never walk alone.
“There’s a special kind of atmosphere in the city. It would be very hard for Jurgen Klopp to turn Liverpool down.”
