Brendan Rodgers sees the Yorkshireman as the ideal replacement for outgoing Reds skipper Steven Gerrard.

However, The Mail on Sunday report that a deal has yet to be agreed and that Milner is becoming increasingly frustrated that this keeps getting reported in the press.

And whatever his future may hold, The Mail say Milner is keen to see City finish as high as possible this season before the negotiations start in the summer.

However, they add that Milner would demand a wage of over £120,000-a-week as he is a free transfer in the summer.

And whilst Liverpool is seen as the ideal option for him – he would not have to uproot his family – Arsenal and Everton are also said to be interested.

Inter Milan, Roma and Valencia have all also expressed an interest.

But, say the Mail, until the final whistle goes in City’s game with Southampton on the final day of the season, his mind will be firmly focussed on his duties for the reigning Premier League champions.
