Liverpool fans have had their say over who they’d like to see to replace Steven Gerrard…
On Saturday, ahead of Liverpool’s game with Sunderland, the club’s fans were asked to vote for who they would like to replace Steven Gerrard as the club’s star midfielder next season.
Gerrard, whose contract expires at the end of the current campaign, has already agreed a move to MLS side LA Galaxy, and Kop boss Brendan Rodgers must now seek out a long term successor.
The vote took place on social media website Twitter using #IWouldReplaceGerrardWith. And now, using the suggestions made, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten candidates – as determined by the supporters:
10) Fabian Delph (Aston Villa)
The England international is available on the cheap with his contract set to expire in six months time. Has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the press, but is not the big-name signing Reds fans would be hoping for.
9) Arturo Vidal (Juventus)
Was linked heavily with Manchester United in the summer transfer window, but those rumours eventually came to nothing. Has had injury problems in the past, but has undoubtedly got plenty of quality, as he showed with Chile.
