- Schmadtke left Wolfsburg in February after four years
- Busy summer transfer window expected at Anfield
Liverpool are in talks to hire Jörg Schmadtke as the club’s sporting director. If the German, who has worked for Wolfsburg, takes up a role at Liverpool, he will become a key member of the transfer committee for what will be an important summer of recruitment.
Liverpool have been looking for a permanent replacement for the incumbent, Julian Ward, who will leave at the end of the season. Ward only replaced his predecessor Michael Edwards last summer but announced in November that he would depart at the conclusion of the current campaign.
