Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard looks to follow in the footsteps of David Beckham by signing for LA Galaxy, according to the BBC.

He will reportedly be signing an 18-month deal worth £4m per year making him one of the highest earners in the Major League Soccer.

An announcement later on this week is expected to confirm the deal that will see him cross the pond to join his Los Angeles teammates when his Liverpool contract runs out in June.

Gerrard is still a threat 

The news comes just a day after Gerrard scored both goals in the FA Cup victory at AFC Wimbledon.

Gerrard also stated post-match that he wanted to win the prestigious trophy before leaving Merseyside.

The 34-year old, who's 35th birthday is on FA Cup final day, becomes the latest in a growing list of Premier League legends who go across to the pond to extend their playing days.

Other Premier League players that have gone to the US including Tim Cahill, Jermain Defoe, and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Could he still star next season?

There is no doubt that Gerrard could have still done a job for Liverpool. Without him they may have had a cup upset on their hands last night and he has saved them many times in the past.

But unless there is a sudden U-turn in the Reds legends' decision to leave. The star will be going to the MLS with LA Galaxy.

Whilst Liverpool frantically search to find anyone who can come close to Gerrard to replace him it would seem that Gerrard has his heart set on the MLS.
