Xabi Alonso is the hot favourite to succeed Jürgen Klopp as Liverpool manager this summer after the latter revealed the current campaign will be his last at Anfield. Now, German media outlets are even reporting the players Alonso would want to bring with him were he to be named as Klopp's successor. 

Alonso has led Bayer Leverkusen to the top of the Bundesliga this campaign, playing slick, attacking football with a well-drilled group. Even if the Werkself fail to end Bayern Munich's 11-year stranglehold on German football, the Spaniard will not be short of offers should he decide to leave at the end of the season.
