Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac is reportedly close to becoming Fenerbahce’s next manager.

The Turkish outlet Fanatik report that Fener’s former Liverpool man Damien Comolli has “agreed” personal terms  with Buvac after holding talks with the 56-year-old coach.

Buvac, Jurgen Klopp’s long-term assistant, unexpectedly left Anfield in April just a few days before their Champions League semi-final with Roma.

Liverpool said Buvac, the assistant manager who Klopp has described as “the brain” behind his set-up, was  “spending some time away from the first team environment between now and the end of the season”.

The Reds have since appointed Pep Lijnders, but Buvac remains an employee of the Anfield club.

Fenerbahce meanwhile, are yet to part company with their current manager Aykut Kocaman, but director of football Comolli is keen to get Buvac on board and Sporx report a deal could be announced today.
