The former England international called time on his career on Merseyside after 17 years at the club and joined MLS outfit LA Galaxy this summer, emulating the career paths taken by countryman David Beckham and Robbie Keane.
However, Gerrard had a host of clubs to choose from it seems, with the aforementioned Spurs, alongside some big European names, enquiring about his availability even before he had announced his decision to leave the Reds.

"The first offer came from Besiktas," Gerrard began, "then managed by Slaven Bilic. Monaco were next. They came in strong.
"Paris Saint-Germain were also very keen. David Moyes called my agent a couple of times, to see whether I would be interested in playing for him at Real Sociedad.
"There was interest from Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. It was good to know he still rated me."
Gerrard, though, insisted that the thought of playing for anyone but Liverpool in the Premier League was one he couldn't bare, and one that wouldn't hold the same feeling.
"A few English clubs called but I wouldn’t play against Liverpool.
"I was sure I could play in the Premier League for another year but there would not have been much of a buzz doing the same thing all over again with Tottenham."
Gerrard's decision to reject an unprecedented move to Pochettino's Spurs was the right one, of course, not just because they would offer a very similar challenge as Liverpool.
The Englishman's legacy left at Liverpool would ultimately have been tarnished had he made a direct move to the north London side, especially given that Tottenham compete with Liverpool for Champions League places.
To further reinforce his decision to move to America, it would appear that Gerrard is relishing the chance to not be constantly under the spotlight.
The scouser admitted that anonymity was a refreshing feeling, compared to life in Liverpool where he would be stopped at every given moment.
