Liverpool boss Rodgers eyes Stindl as possible Gerrard replacement

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has registered an interest in Hannover captain Lars Stindl as a possible replacement for current skipper Steven Gerrard, according to Talksport.

Gerrard announced at the beginning of January that he would leave the club at the end of the season, and has since agreed a move to the MLS to join Los Angeles Galaxy. Although Jordan Henderson is a possible candidate to fill his boots, Rodgers has begun the search for a replacement and believes Stindl has the quality to make the step-up.

The Northern Irishman has reportedly watched the 26-year-old regularly since he returned from injury. Playing in a more advanced role, Stindl has impressed for the Bundesliga club, scoring three goals and assisting two more in his last seven appearances.

The former Germany U-21 international has been at Hannover since the summer of 2010 and has made 147 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 goals. He had previously represented Karlsruhe. Any deal that sees Liverpool move for Stindl is likely to completed for the summer, rather than in the final days of the January transfer window, which ends on Monday.
