Carlo Ancelotti has been tipped to replace under siege Liverpool manager Brendon Rogers.
Liverpool has endured a horror start to the 2015-16 season, currently sitting in 13th spot with just eight points from six games.
Rogers in under immense pressure and if the Reds' fortunes do not turn around quick smart, the under fire manager's time at Anfield could well be up - and Carlo Ancelotti is rumoured to be a possible successor.
Italian website CalcioMercatoWeb have reported that contact between FSG (Liverpool's owners) and Ancelotti has been made.
Ancelotti has won the UEFA Champions League on three occasions (once with Madrid, twice with AC Milan) and he has won the EPL title and FA Cup with Chelsea.
The 56-year-old has been without a club since leaving Real Madrid in May, where he guided the club to its 10th European Cup.
