Major update as Slot appointment expected THIS WEEKEND

Liverpool will finalise the appointment of Arne Slot as new manager within the next 48 HOURS according to the latest reports. 

Slot, 45, confirmed his intentions to leave Feyenoord for Anfield on Thursday night ahead of his side’s Eredivisie game against Go Ahead Eagles. 

The 3-1 victory assured the Rotterdam side’s qualification to the group stages of next season’s Champions League and, following the game, Feyenoord’s players were reported to have been given a week off. 

According to 1908.nl, the players will not have to report for duty until next Thursday, by which time talks between the clubs over Slot’s exit should have concluded. 

It’s been claimed that Feyenoord are looking for a compensation package of between €12 million and €13m for Slot and at least two members of staff in Sipke Hulshoff and Ruben Peeters. 

Dutch media claims that Slot has already largely agreed an outline package to take over from Jurgen Klopp in the Liverpool hotseat and that the clubs are set for a second round of negotiations over his release on Friday. 

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail states that those talks could be wrapped up by the end of the weekend with events now moving fast. 

Slot gets his Anfield move

Slot - a two-time Dutch manager of the year - has been in charge of Feyenoord since 2021. At the end of his first season in charge, the club reached the UEFA Europa Conference League final, where they were beaten by Jose Mourinho’s Roma. 

Feyenoord won the Eredivisie title last season and, on Sunday, Slot added the KNVB Beker (Dutch cup) to his collection. 

"The only thing I can say about it is that the clubs are in negotiations," Slot told ESPN NL on Thursday. 

"And then you sit in the waiting room and wait for what will come out. 

"It seems clear to me that I would like to go to Liverpool. Now I'm waiting to see whether the clubs reach an agreement. I'm very confident in that."

Slot was previously courted by Tottenham, coming close to being appointed last summer before the Lilywhites alighted on Ange Postecoglou. 

Also reported to be interested were Chelsea and Leeds United with Slot turning down the chance to move to Yorkshire back in February 2023.
