Low announced on Tuesday that he will be stepping down from the role he’s held for 15 years after this summer’s European Championships.
Liverpool boss Klopp has been linked with the Germany post for a considerable amount of time and was mentioned as a possible replacement for Low last year after his position became compromised by a 6-0 defeat against Spain.

Reports in Germany at the time claimed Klopp could quit Liverpool to take over the reins from Low and was keen to return to work in his homeland.
Klopp has moved to quash rumours about taking the Germany job on several occasions and insisted in November it is something he would consider in the future when he’s not managing Liverpool.
The German, who ended Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a top-flight title last season, is contracted at the club until 2024, but fans are convinced he will be tempted by the prospect of becoming the boss of his country’s national team.

Who’s the bookies’ favourite to become next Germany boss?
Stefan Kuntz – 2/1
Jurgen Klopp – 3/1
Julian Nagelsmann – 6/1
Hans-Dieter Flick – 8/1
Jurgen Klinsmann – 10/1
Arsene Wenger – 16/1
Christian Streich – 20/1
Odds on Klopp to succeed Low were slashed on Tuesday, with bookmakers placing him at 3/1 to become their next manager. Only Germany’s Under-21 coach Stefan Kuntz has shorter odds.
German supporters also want to see Klopp take over the national side with the Liverpool boss leading a poll on BILD by a significant margin.
Despite Liverpool’s woeful run of results in recent months, which has seen them suffer six defeats at Anfield on the bounce, Klopp has retained the support of fans and the club’s owners.
Considered a legend among Liverpool supporters, having delivered the Premier League and Champions League over his six years in charge, they are understandably concerned about the possibility of losing him.
‘I’m convinced Klopp is going to take the Germany job. Why wouldn’t he? I’m crying,’ one fan wrote on social media.
Another said: ‘Germany job available and Klopp has not been backed the way he should.
‘I hope and pray this isn’t it. No way am I ready to see that man walk. He’s a hero to me and brought more joy to me as a Liverpool fan than anyone ever has. Let’s pray.’

A third Liverpool supporter wrote: ‘Oh no! Klopp’s position under question and then the Germany job becomes available in the summer.
‘Please God, no. *Gulp*.’
Speaking about the speculation around his future back in November, Klopp said: ‘The Germany job may interest me in the future but now, no, because I have no time.
‘I also have a job – a pretty intense job by the way.
‘I am not sure if anybody has asked me but if they don’t know I have a job here at Liverpool.
‘I like it and I am responsible for a lot of things here so I will not go and search for another challenge.’
