Liverpool are getting ready to embark on a new era following the departure of Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp oversaw his final match as Reds manager earlier this month, ending a spell close to nine years in the Anfield dugout. The German will be replaced by Arne Slot, who will take charge as Liverpool's new head coach from June 1.

Slot will take charge of his first pre-season as Liverpool boss this July ahead of the start of the new Premier League season the following month. Already there are rumours about what potential transfer business the Reds may conduct ahead of Slot's first season in charge.

Monday has seen plenty of noise around Liverpool circulate online and across social media. The ECHO has taken a look at some of the main Reds-related stories that have been doing the rounds.

Adam Lallana set for Premier League return

Former Liverpool star Adam Lallana is reportedly nearing a return to the Premier League with a new club.

Lallana will leave Brighton this summer as a free agent when his contract expires. The announcement earlier this month sparked speculation the former Reds midfielder could be retiring to pursue a career in coaching.

However, The Telegraph are reporting that Southampton are in talks to sign Lallana this summer. Lallana left the Saints in 2014 to join Liverpool, after previously captaining Southampton during his time at St Mary's

The ECHO says: Lallana will always be held in high regard by Liverpool supporters. He was a fan favourite during his time at Anfield and was part of the team that won four major trophies in the space of 12 months, including the Premier League title.

If Lallana is to continue his Premier League career into next season with Southampton, he will certainly get a warm reception when the Saints travel to Anfield.

Liverpool's intention for VAR vote emerges

Liverpool will reportedly vote against the proposal to remove VAR at the annual Premier League meeting.

Wolves put forward the proposal for VAR to no longer be used in the top flight from next season. Premier League clubs will meet to vote on the proposal at the annual meeting on June 6.

According to Give Me Sport, Liverpool will vote to keep VAR in the Premier League next season. The report claims that the Reds will be joined by Arsenal and Chelsea in voting against the proposal, which is apparently not set to pass at next month's meeting.

The ECHO says: VAR has been the subject of controversy and debate all season, with Liverpool knowing all too well what can happen when errors are made. Whatever happens at the Premier League vote next month, the upcoming season will see decisions made by referees come under the spotlight even more so than ever before.
