Liverpool is preparing to bring in Jurgen Klopp to take over the Reds after Brendan Rodgers was fired and the final touches on a three year deal could come Thursday, according to BBC Sport. The Reds dismissed Rodgers after the Merseyside Derby last week and now the coaching staff is undergoing some changes as the Premier League season continues.

The club is bringing in the German coach to take over for Rodgers and reports have him signing a three year contract on Thursday. BBC Sport reports that Klopp, who was previously at Borussia Dortmund, will bring in his former assists to be part of the staff. BBC reports that Liverpool assistant Sean O'Driscoll and Gary McAllister has been knocked off as the first team coach.

Klopp is the choice and it comes as Carlo Ancelotti was another candidate. The team is looking to get things going after two up and down years and it also comes as major players like Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling have departed the club. Klopp previously won Bundesliga titles twice and also got the team to the German Cup final and he left last summer after losing that match and finishing seventh in the standings.  

Liverpool is off to a tough start this season and after the draw, the team has won just four of their 11 matches across all competitions this season. Rodgers previously took over the team in June 2012 and helped guide the team to a second place finish in 2014. While that was a successful campaign, it didn't feel like one, as Man City clipped by and took the title after Liverpool was leading the table with three matches to play.
