Irishman is tied to Anfield until 2015.
Manchester City are hoping to be able to take advantage of the current uncertainty surrounding the future of Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers by luring the highly rated young trainer to Eastlands at the end of the season as a replacement for current boss Manuel Pellegrini, according to reports in the Sun.

The Northern Irishman is enjoying a brilliant campaign in charge of the Merseyside giants, with the Premier League giants in second place in the table at present as we now enter the final stretch of the season.
However, Rodgers’s current contract with the Reds now only runs until June 2015 and despite the coach therefore only having 18 months left to run on his deal, there has been no movement as yet from the club’s American owners, the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), about extending his stat at Anfield.
And it is this current deal by FSG in tying Rodger down to a long-term contract that has now put mega-rich Premier League outfit Manchester City on alert, with the Blues having initially tried to land Rodgers following the departure of previous manager Roberto Mancini last summer.
