Arsenal and Liverpool are preparing contract offers for Manchester City midfielder James Milner.

According to the Daily Express, Milner will get offers from Liverpool and Arsenal as his Manchester City contract nears expiration.

The England international has been locked in negotiations with City officials over a new deal for several months, after Milner decided against agreeing a new deal last summer as he wanted to see where he figured in Manuel Pellegrini’s plans.

City believe Milner will be the latest first-team player to commit his future to the Etihad Stadium club, after Joe Hart, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Samir Nasri and others put pen to paper in recent months.

Liverpool are monitoring the talks closely, and preparing a financial package to compete with Manchester City should Milner signal his willingness to listen to other offers.

But the Reds would likely face competition from Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger a massive fan of Milner’s versatility across the midfield. The England man can play out wide or in central midfield, and even did a job for Pellegrini up front against Crystal Palace last week.

He’s featured in every game bar two for Manchester City this season, but the reigning Premier League champions have been struck by the injury bug which has helped Milner get onto the pitch.

He reportedly still fears that once the squad is fully fit, he will once again be pushed into a supplementary role off the bench.
