Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is set to extend his stay at the club by renewing his contract at in the coming weeks.

The Liverpool boss is taking the Reds to their third European final in four years after his side pulled off a stunning comeback against in the semi-finals to set up a mouth-watering final against Tottenham in three weeks time.

The Reds boss asked supporters to turn from "doubters to believers" on his arrival and he has given them every opportunity to do so this season, with the Reds also in contention for the title on the final day of the season, having already amassed a club-record points total.

Despite not having won silverware during his time at Anfield so far, the way in which Klopp has revolutionised the club is set to be rewarded, with the manager in line for a new five-year contract.

According to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Serie A side made an approach for Klopp earlier this season, however the boss was unwilling to enter any discussions due to an agreement already in place with Liverpool.

Klopp has rarely spoken about whether he would extend his contract at Anfield, suggesting earlier that he would like to retire whilst he is still young, rather than emulate the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

However, Romano reports "a new contract is ready for Klopp with a record salary, that worth of a top player" with the German excepted to sign on the dotted line "in the next couple of weeks".

The new deal could keep Klopp at Anfield until 2024, with the manager still having another three years left on his current six-year contract, signed back in 2016.

The news would be a huge boost for the club, who have already secured the likes of , , Sadio Mane and other top stars to long-term contracts.

Klopp has the fourth best percentage of any Liverpool manager in history with 56.8%, trailing just behind club legend Bob Paisley.

The hope will be that Klopp is able to lift his first trophy at Liverpool this season, with the Reds still in contention for the double, should Brighton do them a favour against on Sunday.
