Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is expected to be confirmed as the new Liverpool boss in the next 48 hours, according to widepsread reports.
It is understood that the clubs are now discussing a compensation fee for the 39-year old, which is likely to be in the region of £4m-£5m.
According to reports, Liverpool will now not have a director of football but rather a technical and sporting director.
Roberto Martinez, who was the front runner to replace Kenny Dalglish, was reportedly unwilling to work in the new managerial structure FSG have set up, hence the attention switched back to Rodgers.
