Cape Town - Liverpool are keen to resolve the uncertainty over Steven Gerrard’s future by opening negotiations on a new contract this week, reports the Telegraph.

Gerrard’s current deal expires next May and while reports suggest he could sign a pre-contract agreement with a rival club in the new year, Rodgers has assured him he is crucial to the club’s future and a one-year extension will be on offer.

Raheem Sterling’s future is also high on the agenda for the Merseysiders, with talks continuing over a new £100,000-a-week deal.

Liverpool are also ready to discuss new deals with Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and Joe Allen as the club seek to tie down the core of their squad.

Another massive boost for the Reds will be the return of Daniel Sturridge. The striker has revealed he will be in contention for a first-team return after the international break, as he steps up his recovery from a thigh injury.

 “I feel so good right now,” he said. His return will be timely for Rodgers after a difficult start to the season.
