The Portuguese boss has been identified by Liverpool as their top target to succeed Jurgen Klopp after Xabi Alonso chose to remain at Bayer Leverkusen. Klopp announced in January that he was set to leave Liverpool at the end of the season, citing a lack of energy. This news prompted the Reds to actively search for potential replacements, with Roberto De Zerbi, Julian Nagelsmann, and Simone Inzaghi among those linked to the club.

Sporting manager, Rúben Amorim, is reportedly keen to join Liverpool this summer and has been offered a contract until 2027 by the club. Liverpool have been pursuing Amorim, and their efforts seem to have paid off, although they still need to negotiate fees with Sporting. Chelsea has also shown interest in Amorim, raising the stakes for Liverpool. Although Bayern Munich also considered Amorim as a potential replacement, Liverpool appears to be closing in on securing the promising manager.

The Reds are eager to finalize the deal to prevent other clubs from hijacking the move. Previous reports suggested a fee of around £10 million, but Portuguese newspaper Record has refuted this claim, stating that Amorim’s release clause is £17.1 million for European clubs and £26 million for clubs in the Primera Liga.
