Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has not ruled out a move to follow his former England team-mate Frank Lampard to the MLS in the future, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Reds midfielder, 34, has been at Anfield for his entire career so far, and although he is widely expected to sign a new contract with the club in the near future, he may also be tempted by a move abroad.

Despite being a one-club man, Gerrard admits it could be interesting to try something different towards the end of his career, and it may be that he will become the latest of many big names to try their luck with a big-money move to the US.

Lampard left Chelsea for a move to New York City FC this summer, while other Premier League legends such as David Beckham and Thierry Henry have also enjoyed notable spells with American soccer.

Gerrard’s focus for now is on winning the Premier League title with Liverpool, as the trophy remains the only thing missing from the midfielder’s collection at club level, and he is eager to make up for last season’s disappointment as the Merseyside giants came so close to ending their 24-year wait for the title.

“No talks have happened (over a new contract),” he said. “I am not trying to call the club out or anything like that. It’s not like that. I’m sure we will talk in the future but we will have to wait and see.

“I hope that I’m here for more than one year, of course I do. But it is all about this season for me. I still believe we can be involved in the title race. I believe if we had Luis Suarez, we’d be favourites.

“I’ve never really discussed (a move to the MLS) with anyone or thought about it. Maybe one day I would like the chance to go away from Liverpool for a short time and try something different.”
