Ralf Rangnick 'interested in Liverpool' says agent

Rangnick led Hoffenheim to the Bundesliga for the first time
Former Hoffenheim boss Ralf Rangnick is interested in managing Liverpool, his agent has told BBC Sport.
The German has been linked with a move to replace Roy Hodgson after leaving the Bundesliga club on New Year's Day.
Rangnick's agent, Oliver Mintzlaff, said his client has already been approached by three clubs - one Premier League outfit and two in Germany.
"He would be interested in Liverpool and it's possible he could manage there," Mintzlaff claimed.
He added: "There are no negotiations with them, not even a meeting yet, but he is a big fan of the Premier League.
"If he had to make a decision between the Premier League and staying in the Bundesliga, he would go to England."
Over the weekend reports suggested Anfield owners New England Sports Ventures (NESV), which completed its takeover in October 2010, have already started their search for a new manager.
European scout Tor-Kristian Karlsen said on his Twitter feed that Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp had been approached about the Liverpool job and that Rangnick was also a candidate. Porto's manager Andre Villas Boas has also been linked with Liverpool.
Rangnick left Hoffenheim after four-and-a-half years in charge because of a difference of opinion with the club's owner Dietmar Hopp.
The former Stuttgart, Hannover and Schalke coach led Hoffenheim from obscurity in the German third division to the Bundesliga in successive seasons.
