The French giants have rediscovered some of their lustre this season following Marcelo Bielsa’s appointment in the summer of 2014.

The legendary Argentine coach has placed his faith in some talented youngsters, developed a tactically-astute and adaptable approach and encouraged attractive football. However, as has often been the case for Bielsa sides, they have run out of steam and having been potential contenders some weeks ago, now sit seven points off the pace.

While 47-year-old Klopp has confirmed—via foot sur 7—that he has agreed no contract with another club, he has affirmed that he will not be taking a year out of the game and is open to offers for his services.

The Independent have named OM among several clubs who will be considering the talented Klopp for their hotseat—Barcelona, Manchester City and Napoli have also been linked with the German.
