Liverpool are now set to offer a compensation package to Bayer Leverkusen in a bid to replace Jurgen Klopp with Xabi Alonso.

That is according to Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato.

So, what is the latest on Liverpool and Xabi Alonso? Let’s take a look…

Liverpool set to offer compensation for Xabi Alonso

Well, Liverpool’s pursuit of the Spaniard is beginning to warm up.

A recent story from Foot Mercato claimed that Alonso is keen to replace Klopp after Liverpool approached the Spaniard.

Now – after hearing that – Liverpool are preparing a compensation package to lure the man from Tolosa out of his contract with Bayer Leverkusen.

Aouna wrote on X (previously known as Twitter): “Xabi Alonso is at the top of Liverpool and Bayern Munich for next season. Liverpool made a first approach to Xabi Alonso who is keen on a move in England.

“The Reds are ready to send a bid to Leverkusen in the next weeks”.

It remains to be seen how much Bayer Leverkusen will charge Liverpool in terms of compensation.

Alonso is contracted to the Bundesliga leaders until July 2026.

Bayern Munich could complicate the situation

As Aouna states, Alonso is also a target for Bayern Munich, with Thomas Tuchel leaving the Allianz Arena this summer.

While the 42-year-old wants a move to Liverpool, as aforesaid, the Reds could find themselves spending more on his appointment if Bayern Munich offer Bayer Leverkusen a larger compensation bid.

A bidding war for a manager is not often seen in football, although that is exactly what we could have on our hands this summer.
