Gerrard first wore the number 17 shirt when he broke into the Liverpool first team as a youngster, but has since become famous for wearing the number 8 for over a decade now.
Gerrard should be available to make his debut against California rivals San Jose Earthquakes on July 17, and the club have released a teaser image of the shirt the former England man will wear.
However, the shirt will cost fans a fair slice of their hard earned cheddar, as it will go on sale for £134 ($204.99) for the shirt with long-sleeves, and £114 ($174.99) for the short-sleeved version.
The maximum price Liverpool charge for a shirt with Gerrard’s name and number on the back is set at just £42, making the difference in price a stark contrast.
