Anfield captain set for Nou Camp offer.
Barcelona are reportedly considering a move for Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard. Newly installed president Sandro Rossell has his eyes set on Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas but if he fails to secure the Spaniard he will push for a move to bring the England midfielder to the Nou Camp.
Rossell has stated publicly that he will not be spending vast sums to bring in countless Galatico style signings but has suggested that one big name could be sought this summer and it appears that the England captain is a fall back option if Arsene Wenger manages to fend off moves for the Emirates star.
The £40m rated one club man has had something of a disappointing season but his own very high standards and the recent dismissal of Rafa Benitez along with the sorry financial state the club is in has led some to believe that Steven Gerrard would consider a move away from Anfield.
Clearly Tom Hicks and George Gillett would be very unwise to consider selling one of the clubs top performers, especially after such a torrid season, however if an offer was made and the 30 year old made it clear he was open to such an offer then that may make things problematic.
Barcelona are not the kind of club to give up lightly in pursuit of a target. They have hounded Arsenal for years in the hope of bringing their former youth team player back to the club, so if they really do push for a move to bring Gerrard to La Liga then expect the Catalan club to use any means necessary to win his signature. Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the mercurial Reds hero.
