Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krosche is attracting interest from Liverpool, according to The Athletic.
The Reds are looking for a new sporting director after confirming that Julian Ward will leave his role. Ward will step down at the end of the season for personal reasons.
He took over from Mike Edwards and has spent just a year on the job. Ward oversaw the transfer deals for Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo but is set to move on.
The process to replace him at Anfield is now underway and in its early stages.
Liverpool are eyeing Krosche ahead of the next summer transfer window. The German joined Frankfurt from RB Leipzig in 2021.
He signed a contract until 2025, and the Bundesliga club won the Europa League last term. Krosche has forged an impressive reputation within the game as a result.
The 42-year-old once managed Bundesliga 2 club SC Paderborn II and was the assistant manager of Bayer Leverkusen for two years.
The former Paderborn defensive midfielder has overseen the recruitment of 27 players since joining Frankfurt.
Randal Kolo Muani, Mario Gotze and Jens Petter Hauge are some of the high-profile signings the German club made last summer.
Liverpool could do with a squad overhaul in the next few transfer windows. They have struggled across all competitions this term and could miss out on Europe next term.
Krosche has proven himself with some smart recruitment in recent years.
Liverpool do not have the cash to compete with Manchester City and Chelsea in the transfer window.
They need someone like Krosche, who has shown he knows how to get the best deals in the market.
