Liverpool are hoping to lure Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish back in an ambassadorial role.
Dalglish was sacked in May following an 18-month spell as boss, having taken over from Roy Hodgson in January 2011.
Although Dalglish took up a similar position before his appointment as manager – and was involved in the club's academy – it is unclear whether he would be open to the idea of a return.

Since being replaced by former Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers, the 61-year-old has only been to Anfield once this season to watch Liverpool in action.
Dalglish, who played more than 350 times for the club, has always been held in high esteem by the supporters.
And Liverpool are keen for him to help attract lucrative sponsorship deals, according to the Daily Telegraph.
After his departure last summer, Dalglish gave the impression that he was warm to the idea of returning to Liverpool.
He said at the time: 'I said when first approached about coming back as manager that I would always be of help if I can at any time and that offer remains the same.'
Liverpool owner John W Henry also hinted he would have his former manager back, describing Dalglish as 'part of the family'.
