Julian Nagelsmann puts Premier League on alert as RB Leipzig boss admits he 'could imagine' working in England one day

JULIAN NAGELSMANN has put Premier League clubs on red alert after saying he could see himself managing in England in the future.

The RB Leipzig boss has earned widespread acclaim since taking charge of Hoffenhein when he was just 28 during the 2016-17 season.

And the German has continued to earn praise at the helm of Leipzig – taking them to the Champions League semi-finals last term.

And ahead of the Round of 16 clash against Liverpool on Tuesday evening, the 33-year-old has stated that the English top-flight interests him.

However, he warned prospective suitors that he would not be departing Leipzig until his contract expires in 2023.

Speaking to the Telegraph, he said: "I have a contract now until 2023 so I think I will stay in Leipzig.  

'The Premier League is a very interesting league and I can imagine it could be a big aim to be a big manager in the Premier League one day like Jurgen (Klopp) who is very successful.

"It could be a step in the future. But, you know, in soccer it's not that easy to plan how long will you be a manager in Leipzig?

"When will you go to the Premier League? I could imagine going to the Premier League.

"I could imagine staying as a manager in the Bundesliga for my whole career. It's cool to be a manager in my own country, I love it.

"But then perhaps in the future we can meet face-to-face in the Premier League, who knows."

Nagelsmann – who came third in Uefa's Men's Coach of the Year award last season – has been linked with making the move to England within the last year.

It was claimed in November that Manchester United were eyeing him up should they have decided to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Manchester City were also said to be interested in Nagelsmann prior to Pep Guardiola's contract extension.

Nagelsmann is currently fourth favourite to replace Klopp at Anfield if the ex-Borussia Dortmund gaffer parts ways with the Reds.
