Young Reds boss is wanted by a whole host of big-name top-flight rivals at present.
Liverpool are understood to be keen to tie head coach Brendan Rodgers down to a new long-term deal at Anfield so as to keep the highly rated Northern Irishman out of the clutches of his many admirers in the Premier League, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The 40-year-old has enjoyed an encouraging start to the new campaign with the Merseyside giants, who were at one point topping the Premier League standings after having won their opening three top-flight fixtures without conceding a single goal.
And despite the fact that the Reds have since slipped up in their previous two outings in which they claimed just the one point, the club’s American owners, the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), are still said to be delighted at present with the progress that Rodgers has overseen at Anfield since he took over from previous manager Kenny Dalglish in June 2012.
In fact, since the turn of the year, Liverpool have been one of the form teams in the Premier League, while Rodgers also managed to bring in the likes of front man Daniel Sturridge and midfield player Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window, with both players having since made eye-catching starts to their careers on Merseyside.
And as a result, FSG are said to be readying a new contract for Rodgers, who currently has just two years left on his present deal at the club, in order to ward off interest in their manager from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Arsenal.
