Diego Simeone, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti are also believed to be among the candidates to replace the under-pressure Chilean, whose side have fallen well adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea since the turn of the year.
In contrast, Rodgers’ side are unbeaten in the Premier League so far in this calender year, and have closed to within two points of the top four. After surviving a difficult spell at the club earlier this season, he’s now well and truly back in the good books of the Reds fans.
Rodgers, who was quoted by the Daily Star, said: “I’ve signed a deal here, and I want to be here to see that through. Then hopefully I’ve earned enough time to warrant another deal, to keep growing and building here.
“It is very difficult (to see myself at another English club). Where do you go from Liverpool, one of the biggest clubs in the world? Where do you go? It doesn’t distract me. I chose to come to Liverpool because I hoped I could be here for many years.
“I’m very proud to be here and allowed to work, it’s just the nature of football I think as well. As long as the people here at Liverpool, the board, the supporters and the players are ultimately happy with the work, I would love to be here for as long as I can.
“I find I am developing into the very best I can be and we are working into an exciting phase after this season. Hopefully, if we get young players tied to deals and contracts, that will allow us to go win trophies with this way of working.”
