Liverpool have a ‘decisive factor’ to lure Arne Slot to replace Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool is reportedly considering hiring Feyenoord manager Arne Slot as a replacement for Jurgen Klopp. Slot is attracted to a key factor that Liverpool can offer, which is seen as crucial in their attempts to bring him on board.

The 45-year-old has been the frontrunner to take over from Klopp, who is departing after nine successful years with the club, during which Liverpool secured both the Champions League and Premier League titles. Slot had previously been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham expressing interest in him.

However, he declined the opportunity in favor of seeking Champions League football while staying with Feyenoord. The decision was influenced by the positive working environment and the prospect of building on the team’s success in the past two seasons.

The uncertainty surrounding the potential move to Tottenham made Slot reconsider, as he weighed up various factors, including the willingness of his staff to join him. Feyenoord had earned a spot in this season’s Champions League after winning the Eredivisie, but they were unable to progress beyond the group stage, leading to their Europa League exit at the hands of Roma.

Currently, Liverpool is in a strong position in the Premier League, sitting in second place and well-positioned to fulfill Slot’s aspirations for Champions League football next season. The club needs to secure two victories from their upcoming five matches to ensure their return to the prestigious competition.

Additionally, Liverpool has a realistic chance of clinching their second Premier League title under Klopp’s leadership before the season concludes. There is a possibility that Slot could face his current team, Feyenoord, in the Champions League next season as the Dutch outfit is on track to secure their spot in the tournament.

Slot still has two years remaining on his contract with Feyenoord, and it is speculated that Liverpool may need to pay £8.59 million to buy him out of his existing deal.
