Rumoured Liverpool managerial target Frank Rijkaard is determined to force through a move to the Premier League after he was sacked by Galatasaray, according to skysports.com.
Rijkaard, 48, was dumped by the Turkish giants this week after an unhappy 16-month spell. The Dutchman's reputation remains strong, however, following his Champions League and La Liga winning period with Barcelona.
Rijkaard has been linked with a return to former club Ajax, but his advisers are understood to have been instructed to find a post in England.
With Roy Hodgson coming under increasing pressure after a disastrous start to the season, Anfield could well be his next destination.
Bookmakers William Hill have slashed their odds about Rijkaard becoming the next manager of Liverpool from 2/1 to 2/7, following rumours that Hodgson will quit the club after tonight's Europa League game. The company has also suspended their market on who will be the next top flight manager to leave his club for which Hodgson was 15/8 favourite.
