Liverpool are reportedly preparing for life after Steven Gerrard already by lining up moves for Malaga’s Isco and Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera, according to AS.

Gerrard has been ever-present for Liverpool in the Premier League this season as the Reds continue to struggle under new boss Brendan Rodgers, but suffered an injury hit campaign last time round.

The 32-year-old is contracted with the Merseyside club until 2015 and recently ruled out hanging up his boots any time soon – however according to AS, Liverpool chiefs are sounding out potential replacements as they begin to plan for life after the Liverpool skipper.

Isco, who impressed for cash-strapped Malaga in the Champions League against Zenit St. Petersburg last night, has reportedly been identified as a man capable of filling the hole left behind by Gerrard when he eventually retires.

The Spain U-21 star could be available on the cheap if Malaga’s financial problems continue, meaning Liverpool may pounce as early as next summer.

According to AS, Rodgers favours the 20-year-old as a long-term replacement for Gerrard , while another potential target is Athetico Madrid’s Ander Herrera, who impressed in his side’s run to the Europa League final last season. Scouts from Liverpool have reportedly been to watch the 23-year-old recently.
