Carlos: 'We want to sign Gerrard'

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is being targeted by big-spending Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala.

The England international has only just returned from a long-standing groin injury, but is in contention to start for the Reds in the Merseyside derby against Everton tomorrow (Saturday).

His ability is unquestioned though, and Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos admits a player of Gerrard's caliber, along with a host of other Barclays Premier League players, could help the Russian side take the next step.

"I will have dinner with the President to discuss transfers for next season. We want to sign players like Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Robin van Persie and Robert Pires," he told Radio Marca.

Gerrard made his Liverpool debut in 1998, and has appeared over 500 times in all competitions for the Anfield outfit.

At 31 years of age, the club legend is unlikely to leave his boyhood team anytime soon though, with the midfielder eager to lift more silverware at his beloved Liverpool.


Two FA Cup winners medals, two League Cup winners medals, a UEFA Cup and a UEFA Champions League are the major honours Gerrard has collected during his 13 years with the Liverpool first team, and the player will be confident of adding to that collection if he can stay fit on Merseyside.

Injuries have hampered recent progression, but the initial goal will be to fire Liverpool back to the Champions League, and then onto more trophy success under Kenny Dalglish.
