The agent of Ralf Rangnick has put his name forward for Roy Hodgson's job at Liverpool.

The 52-year-old has been linked with replacing Hodgson at Liverpool after leaving Hoffenheim on New Year's Day.

"Ralf Rangnick is very interested in the Premier League and Liverpool is certainly a very interesting club with a great tradition," Oliver Mintzlaff said.

"Ralf is a great fan of English football and he has followed it a great deal.

"The English Premier League is something which interests him very much, but there have not been any discussions with Liverpool."

After completing his A-Levels in Germany, Rangnick spent a semester studying at the University of Sussex in Brighton and graduated with a degree in English and Sports Studies at Stuttgart University in 1985.

"Of course he speaks English fluently," confirmed Mintzlaff. "That would not be a problem."
