Steven Gerrard's future at Liverpool has been the subject of speculation and rumors for the past few weeks, and the latest developments will only add to the spice.

MLS side New York Red Bulls have essentially confirmed their interest in the Liverpool captain and former England captain, with the Sunday Telegraph reporting that Steven Gerrard is on their 'discovery list'.

Gerrard's placement on the list means that in theory if the Liverpool legend becomes available, the Red Bulls would be the first MLS side allowed to make a play for the star midfielder.

"The list details future or possible acquisitions and by including him, means that the Red Bulls will have first call on him ahead of other American clubs," the Daily Mirror reported.

There have been plenty of stories linking Gerrard away from Liverpool over the years, but this one suggesting a move to the Red Bulls has more substance. The fact that the Red Bulls have placed him on the list suggests that they think they have a chance of signing him.

Gerrard's Liverpool future in serious doubt

As we've known for last couple of months, Gerrard's situation at Liverpool has become less secure.

Manager Brendan Rodgers stated last year that he saw Gerrard moving into the defense and prolonging his career at Liverpool for a number of years.

But this year the tune has changed, with reports suggesting that contract talks between Gerrard and the club have stalled because of wage demands.

This leaves a move to the Red Bulls as a real possibility some time in the future, with the MLS side looking to replace Thierry Henry after his decision to retire. And to add to that, the Red Bulls sporting director is now former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier.

That link-up could well be something that interests Gerrard. Watch this space.
