Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has maintained that the club can still achieve European qualification for next season, despite the club being five points adrift of fifth place.
Berndan Rodgers’ men have also played a game more than all but one of the top six, but Gerrard insists that they can catch those above them.
Meanwhile, Jamie Carragher is convinced that Gerrard will stay with Liverpool for the rest of his career.
The Reds defender, who will call time on his career at the end of the season after 23 years of service, believes there is ‘no doubt’ that the England captain will stay beyond his current contract, which expires in 2015.
Elsewhere, the Metro have claimed that the club will make an approach for Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott, as they attempt to rebuild their defence for next season.
As well as the impending retirement of Jamie Carragher, the Reds are set to part company with fellow centre backs Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates.
Despite playing an integral role in City’s first league win in almost forty-five years, England international Lescott has started just twelve games this time around, and is likely to be sold with Aston Villa also reportedly interested.
