The City midfielder wants a move to Merseyside after his contract is up
James Milner believes he can make the biggest impact at Liverpool, following Steven Gerrard’s departure.
Talks about extending his contract at Manchester City have come to a standstill after the England midfielder has become unhappy with the lack of playing time under manager Manuel Pellegrini.
Moving from Aston Villa five years ago for £26million, Milner has made a telling contribution to the club’s success winning consecutive league titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
Brendan Rodgers would be delighted to sign the 28-year-old who will join Burnley striker Danny Ings, and bolster his squad as the departure of Raheem Sterling looks increasingly likely.
Ings has scored ten times this season – more than the goals of Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini put together.
David Moyes has expressed his interested in the 22-year-old, promising the former Bournemouth man regular football at Real Sociedad, but Liverpool look to be favourites for his signature.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche recently admitted he could lose Ings, who is out of contract in the summer – the Reds may still have to pay around £5m for his services.
