The Independent newspaper has a real bombshell on their front and back pages on Wednesday morning.

Steven Gerrard has been in talks with Liverpool over a return to the club just months after leaving for LA Galaxy.

According to The Independent, Jurgen Klopp wants to bring Steven Gerrard back to Liverpool, following the play-off defeat last week sustained by LA Galaxy at Seattle Sounders.

Gerrard is now available until January 15, 2016 and is in discussions with Liverpool about returning.

Perhaps in just a training role but there have been talks with new Liverpool boss Klopp about playing for his new look Liverpool side.

Simon Hughes does suggest however that LA Galaxy won’t sanction a loan move but that Gerrard is set to arrive in England on Wednesday for talks with his boyhood club.

Whether Gerrard could fit into the high octane pressing style under Klopp remains to be seen as in truth, the former England captain has not looked too fit during his short spell with LA Galaxy.

Gerrard did confirm his return to Liverpool on Instagram – see third picture below.
