New coach “under consideration”

Things are coming together nicely for Arne Slot, but he is still looking to get a full backroom team in place to work alongside.

According to a new report from The Athletic‘s James Pearce, former Everton player Johnny Heitinga is “under consideration” for a move to Anfield this summer.

This is after Lewis Steele claimed that ex-Man City first-team performance analyst, Aaron Briggs, is joining Liverpool as the new elite development coach, replacing the departed Vitor Matos.

Heitinga has confirmed to De Telegraaf that he is in talks with Liverpool, admitting: “All I can say now is that I have been approached and that my agent Rob Jansen and I are in conversation.”
