Steven Gerrard says he is open to a move away from Liverpool in the future.

The 34-year-old Reds captain is expected to sign a new contract with the 18-time English champions in the coming weeks.

I think it’s a perfect move for him. But I haven’t given it much thought. That carrot hasn’t been dangled yet

Gerrard’s England team-mate Frank Lampard moved to New York City FC earlier this summer, ending his Chelsea career.

The Liverpool captain backed Lampard’s move to Major League Soccer and admitted that he may consider a switch stateside in the future.

“One day that might happen to me, I don’t know,” Gerrard is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

“I’ve never really discussed it with anyone or thought about it. Maybe one day I would like the chance to go away from Liverpool for a short time and try something different.

“I think Frank has made a great decision. At his age, 36, he’s had a wonderful career and I don’t think he has anything to prove in England in any more.

“He’s broken records with Chelsea and won everything with them. I think it’s a perfect move for him. But I haven’t given it much thought. That carrot hasn’t been dangled yet.”
