According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool has sounded out former-Chelsea and PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti about replacing current boss Brendan Rodgers.
Liverpool boss Rodgers has come under increasing pressure with the Reds on a run of four games in all competitions without a win.
The Reds face Carlisle United in the third round of the Capital One Cup this evening with Rodgers future at Anfield seemingly hanging by a thread.
The former-Swansea boss spent big this summer on the likes of Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne, after losing England international Raheem Sterling to Manchester City in the summer.
It seems that although Rodgers does have the support of some of the Liverpool hierarchy, the Reds owners FSG are preparing to replace the Northern Irishman in the clubs managerial hot seat.
Ancelotti is regarded as one of the best tacticians in the European game and is highly decorated. The Italian has guided AC Milan and Real Madrid to the Champions League crown, while he also won the European Cup during his playing days with the Rossoneri.
The Italian is likely to be a popular choice amongst the Reds fans, if indeed Rodgers leaves the club in the near future.
Will Carlo Ancelotti be the next Liverpool boss?
