Klopp's agent responds to talk Liverpool boss could replace Heynckes at Bayern

Klopp would be an attractive option as FC Hollywood eye a long-term option after sacking Carlo Ancelotti this season

Jurgen Klopp's agent has rejected the possibility of the Liverpool coach joining Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The Bundesliga champions sacked Carlo Ancelotti this season with veteran coach Jupp Heynckes steadying the ship.

But the former treble winner is not certain to continue his stay at the Allianz Arena beyond this season, leading to reports that FC Hollywood could pursue Klopp.

Though his agent Marc Kosicke, speaking to SPORT1 , has quickly dismissed it as a possibility: "There's nothing there."

Another ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has been linked with the job.

While RB Leipzig chief Ralph Hasenhuttl, previously linked with succeeding Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, is now emerging as the favourite should Heynckes opt against an extension.

Heynckes has returned to fend off any hopes rivals had of dethroning them in the Bundesliga with an 11-point gap to second-placed Schalke.

Heynckes will hope to win the Champions League too, a trophy he never had the chance to defend back in 2013 upon Pep Guardiola's arrival. A quarter-final place is likely with a favourable last 16 tie with Besiktas.
