The Mirror says the Fulham boss will be appointed at Liverpool this week once he has finalised a guaranteed transfer kitty.

Liverpool are prepared to meet Fulham's compensation demands to name Hodgson, 62, as Rafa Benitez's successor.

But the former Inter Milan and Switzerland manager wants a pledge of transfer funds before accepting the post.

Hodgson knows Liverpool's squad badly needs rebuilding after a desperately disappointing campaign.
