The first weekend of the January transfer window is always bound to see plenty of random rumours in the papers, especially following Steven Gerrard’s decision to leave the club in the summer.
The 32-year-old scored 11 goals in 19 appearances in the 2014 MLS season for Toronto but missed large chunks of their season and has received criticism from their fanbase.
Meanwhile, more MLS talk involves Gerrard’s expected move Stateside, with Los Angeles Galaxy the favourites for his signature.
UPDATE: Gerrard has now confirmed he will move to America in an interview with LFCTV.
The Mirror claim Galaxy have offered to match the £100,000 per week they paid David Beckham. Gerrard would sign a four-year deal with the club.

Made some calls. Feel safe saying that if Steven Gerrard comes to MLS it will be to the LA Galaxy.

Speaking of Gerrard, The Telegraph‘s Merseyside reporter Chris Bascombe claims the club are already considering loaning the iconic midfielder back next season.
“Liverpool noted how Thierry Henry took the opportunity to train at Arsenal and then became a short-term signing,” writes Bascombe.
