The Germany national team are looking for a new head coach after sacking Hansi Flick recently following a run of poor results.
Rudi Voller is in interim charge of Germany and they did beat World Cup finalists France 2-1 at home on Tuesday night.
However, they are looking to rope in a new head coach and Nagelsmann has emerged as one of the top targets.
But according to German magazine Sport Bild (via Fussball Transfers), they could consider the former Bayern Munich coach as just a short term option.
Nagelsmann is keen to manage in club football and a long spell as a national team boss may not appeal.
Germany are expected to try and convince him to take charge of the national team until next summer’s European Championship, which they will be hosting.
It is suggested that they could then try to tempt Klopp from Liverpool.
The Reds manager has already rejected Germany’s approach, but the situation could be different in a year’s time.
