According to Neil Jones of the Liverpool Echo, the Reds will hold advanced talks with the 29-year-old this week, and are very hopeful of agreeing a deal.
Milner has been linked with a move to Merseyside for a number of months now, and despite reported interest from Arsenal, it sounds increasingly as though the Englishman’s next destination is Anfield.
His versatility is a definite plus point, with the former Newcastle man capable of playing in a wide attacking role, in the centre of midfield or even at full-back.
Milner will also bring undoubted experience to Brendan Rodgers’ young team, and his two Premier League titles will help give the squad more of a winner’s mentality.
It’s understood that Liverpool have verbal agreements with both Ings and Milner.
Update: The same news is reported by all the Liverpool press gang on Monday night, from all the usual sources.
