Steven Gerrard is one of the greatest players ever to pull on the Liverpool jersey, however talk is continuing that his spell at Anfield may be coming to an end. According to the Daily Mirror, an end of season switch to America could be a likely move.

Steven Gerrard is 34-years-old and began his career with Liverpool all the way back in 1987. Gerrard worked hard and earned his way through the club’s youth academy. The midfielder made his first team debut in November 1998 and has since gone on to appear in 488 Premier League matches for Liverpool. The captain has also featured in 687 games in all competitions but the icon has now received some criticism.

Gerrard is still considered an important player by manager Brendan Rodgers but it is becoming apparent that the former England captain can no longer play week in week out at the highest level. It seems the midfielder’s legs are beginning to go as he becomes less effective for the Reds with rumours his new contract offer will be a significantly reduced wage.

New York Red Bulls are the MLS club that are interested in the 114 time capped England international. Their director of football is former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier, known for having a good relationship with Steven Gerrard and could work to convince him to move over the pond.

Gerrard has won 10 trophies at Anfield, including 2 FA Cups and a UEFA Champions League, Liverpool fans do you really think he could leave you in the summer?
