The 48-year-old German replaces Brendan Rodgers, who was sacked on Sunday after three and a half years in charge with the club 10th in the Premier League.

Klopp has been out of work since May, when he ended a seven-year spell at Borussia Dortmund to take a sabbatical.

He will earn £5m a year, rising to £7m with bonuses for a Premier League title or Champions League qualification.

Klopp is expected to bring Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz - his former assistants at the Bundesliga club - to Anfield.

Klopp takes over a Liverpool side who have won only four of their 11 games in all competitions this season.

The international break means his first game in charge is a trip to Tottenham in the Premier League on 17 October.

Northern Irishman Rodgers, who took over in June 2012, led the Reds to second place in the Premier League in 2013-14.
