Liverpool star Raheem Sterling is ready to turn down any contract offer from the club even if it totals £180,000 a week, reports the Daily Mail.
The Mail believes that this makes it appear that the 20-year-old isn’t stalling over a new deal just to get better financial terms, but instead an attempt to secure guarantees with regards to the position he would fill in Brendan Rodgers XI.
The youngster has had to play out of position at wing-back for the Reds in recent games, but the report claims that he wants to play in one of the three forward positions at Anfield.
At the same time the Merseyside club have faltered in their efforts to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
A recent loss to Manchester United left them five points behind the Red Devils in fourth with just eight games left in the season.
The winger will not play in England’s game against Italy on Tuesday after an injection received to a toe injury he has recently been playing with according to the Daily Mail.
