Rafael Benitez is set to be unveiled as the new manager of Liverpool within days, BBC Sport understands.
The 44-year-old is favourite to replace Gerard Houllier, who was sacked in May, but is serving a notice period after quitting Valencia on 1 June.
Last week Manuel Garcia Quilon, who represents Benitez, said no talks with the Reds had so far taken place.
And, although he said there would be developments "in the next few days", there has been no news from Anfield.
Benitez has already been replaced at Valencia, by the former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri.
