Liverpool are prepraring a £7.5million January bid for Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph, according to the Daily Mirror.

Brendan Rodgers is starting to plan for life without Steven Gerrard, after the Liverpool captain revealed he would be leaving the club at the end of the season only last week.

And with midfielder Delph refusing to sign a new contract with Paul Lambert’s side, a £7.5million bid should be enough to secure his services given Villa do not want to risk losing him for nothing at the end of the season.

Inter Milan are keen to sign Reds midfielder Lucas Leiva this month, meaning a move for Delph could well happen sooner than expected.

The 25-year-old has recently forced his way into Roy Hodgson’s England squad, whilst his versatility would make the former Leeds man a welcome addition to Brendan Rodgers squad.
