Milner has been linked with a move to Merseyside for a while now, with Brendan Rodgers clearly a fan of what he could bring to his side.

Liverpool gaffer has been criticised in the past for signing too many young, inexperienced players, and bringing in Milner would be a refreshing change in that respect.

Having an experienced and proven Premier League player, with title winning pedigree, who is still hungry to win trophies and prove himself in a regular role, especially on a free transfer, would be good business for Liverpool.
