Ste Hoare reports on Liverpool’s swoop for Manchester City’s James Milner.
The 29-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is said to prefer a move to Anfield.
Manchester City midfielder James Milner is set to make a move to Anfield in the summer, according to The Mirror’s David Anderson.
Liverpool are ready to offer the England international £100,000 a week to join them, and the player is willing to accept as he believes he will have more opportunities to play in central midfield if he joins Brendan Rodgers’ side.
One of the reasons Milner, 29, is looking to leave City is that he’s become annoyed as he feels he is constantly played out of position.
Arsenal have reportedly shown interest in signing Milner too, but it is believed that he prefers a move to the Reds as he wouldn’t have to uproot his family.
Liverpool are in the market for a midfield player as they will lose captain Steven Gerrard to MLS this season, and it looks like Milner is the man set to replace the departing skipper.
Manager Brendan Rodgers is said to be keen to add Milner to his side, which is unsurprising after he called him a “wonderful player” in an interview that took place in January.
