Klopp would almost certainly be a target for the German giants given the job he has done at Anfield this season and his previous pedigree with Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

“I do not know. There's a long way to go.

“Basically, football is like this: The opportunity has to be right, and the timing has to be right.

“But I'm totally happy here and do not feel like I'm finished here. Our team has a good age structure and we can work together for a while.”

Liverpool are still fighting on two fronts and will resume their Champions League campaign when they face Porto in the first leg of their quarter-final at Anfield on Tuesday night.
