Steven Gerrard Happy to Play with Charlie Adam and Henderson

Charlie Adam

However the Liverpool captain sees this as more of a positive that can only help team over the course of the season.

“We have a lot of good midfielders here. For example, I think  Lucas Leiva was our best player last season, but whoever I play with, it’s not a  problem,” said Gerrard.

Liverpool look set to offload Raul Meireles after just a season in an attempt to cut back on congestion and payroll, but could be stuck with Anfield misfit Alberto Aquilani.

Aquilani endured an miserable injury-hit first campaign before being sent on a season long loan with an option for a permanent move to Juventus last season.  However, the Turin giant’s have refused to meet Liverpool’s valuation, and Liverpool may be forced to loan the midfielder out again or lose some value by selling cheap.

Liverpool are set to clear out some “deadwood” as well as bringing in their new recruits, and Jonjo Shelvey could be the first to go out on loan to Blackpool in order to seal the deal for Charlie Adam.
