The 33-year-old joined the Reds last summer from Southampton alongside teammates Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren, but struggled to nail down a regular place in the starting XI under manager Brendan Rodgers.

Lambert made just seven starts in the league last season and scored twice, although he doesn’t appear to have a future at Anfield ahead of the new campaign following the arrival of Danny Ings, while Rodgers is reportedly looking to bring in another forward during the transfer window.

Aston Villa were keen on the England international during the January transfer window, but Lambert decided to stay and fight for his place on Merseyside.

Now with a move to the Hawthorns a possibility, the lure of regular first-team football should be enough for Lambert to call it quits on his unsuccessful time with his boyhood club.
