Exclusive – Gerrard transfer latest! Liverpool skipper to replace ex-Everton star?


first_imgFormer LA Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas believes Steven Gerrard could be the perfect replacement for ex-Everton star Landon Donovan at the MLS side.Liverpool skipper Gerrard has announced he will exit Anfield at the end of the season following an incredible 17 year stay with the Merseysiders.The 34-year-old will not remain in the Premier League and is hotly tipped for a move to the MLS once his contract runs out.And Lalas believes, with Donovan leaving Los Angeles, the move would be right for all parties involved.“If it is true it would make sense,” he told the Sports Bar, when asked about the rumours. “The Los Angeles Galaxy is one team he has been linked to and they are a team who are in desperate need of signing a big name player.“Landon Donovan who has been on that team now for a number of years has retired so there is a huge opening and I think it would make a lot of sense right now.“The guy is an absolute legend. I think he would be a wonderful addition to the Galaxy just from a practical standpoint on the field and off the field in terms of replacing him [Donovan] with a big name.”last_img read more
