Feyenoord's Slot Front-runner to replace Klopp at Liverpool

Arne Slot is at the forefront of Liverpool's search for a replacement for Jurgen Klopp.

The Feyenoord head coach ticks all their key criteria for the position, although Rushhoursport understands the process is not a foregone conclusion, with the Eredivisie club determined to keep Slot.

There is also interest from other top clubs and Liverpool are still in dialogue with several options, but the 45-year-old is a strong candidate.

Slot, who secured the KNVB Cup last weekend and led Feyenoord to their first title in six years last season, appeals to Liverpool due to his aggressive, full-throttle style.

He has drilled his team to be adept at turning defensive actions into shooting opportunities and they top the Eredivisie for tackles won in the opposition's final third.
