Italy coach Marcello Lippi is interesting managerless Liverpool.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Lippi, who leaves his Italy job after the World Cup, represents the kind of solidity and success rate that the new Anfield owners are looking for.

His presence would also help guarantee that stars such as Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres will stay on at the club.

It's also understood both Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush would support this appointment.

Lippi has always said that he would like an experience in the Premier League and that he wouldn't accept another Serie A job after the Azzurri.
