According to multiple reports, it appears City midfielder James Milner will opt to make a move to Anfield this summer and forgo Champions League football with Manchester City and Arsenal.
Milner has repeatedly expressed a desire to leave the Etihad, citing inconsistent starting opportunities this season as a reason for wanting to exit Manchester.
While the 29-year-old has played well this season for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, the Englishman was given the starting nod just 18 times this campaign.
Milner has reportedly rejected City’s offer of £165,000-per-week in an effort to make the plunge to another squad who will offer him starting opportunities on a more regular basis.
And Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers appear to be just that team.
The Reds are in desperate need of midfielders after Steven Gerrard’s exit and Milner appears to be one of their top targets to fill the void.
Milner represents a pivotal move for Brendan Rodgers.
After enduring a disappointing campaign at Anfield, the Liverpool boss is under extreme pressure to rebuild the team this summer and compete for a top four position next year.
If the club were to sign Milner, it would be the first big step towards that goal.
