Liverpool are considering Louis van Gaal for a senior management role as the club's owners step up their summer revolution, according to The Guardian.

The Dutchman was initially linked to take over from Damien Comolli as director of football, but the Reds hierarchy have since decided to change their management structure and he has remained a target for a revised role.

Van Gaal is reportedly keen on a move to Anfield and could be the first of many new faces at the club, with Fenway Sports Group's managing director Billy Hogan set to take over as Liverpool's new commercial director.

The club are currently searching for a successor to Kenny Dalglish, and their criteria are thought to be a young coach with title-winning experience.

They have since had approaches for Ajax's Frank de Boer, Swansea's Brendan Rodgers and Borussia Dortmund's Jurgen Klopp turned down, and major contenders for the role now seem to be Wigan manager Roberto Martinez and former Chelsea coach Andre Villas-Boas.

Van Gaal was last in management two years ago with Bayern Munich, when the Bavarians were crowned Bundesliga champions and were defeated in the Champions League final by Jose Mourinho's Inter.
