Steven Gerrard could be set for a reunion with Liverpool, but not in the way you would expect. 

Following the end LA Galaxy's MLS campaign, speculation was rife that the former Anfield captain could return to the club on a short-term loan deal. However, Jurgen Klopp quickly put an end to those suggestions. 

But now, Gerrard could be set to face the club he represented for 28 years after chief executive Ian Ayre said a friendly between Galaxy and the Reds - during Liverpool's 2016 US tour - is a possibility.

Ayre told BBC Sport: "That's something we have on our radar of ideas.

"Steven is back in Liverpool at the moment, so I'm sure we can have a chance to see what he thinks."

Gerrard is, and always will be, a legend among Liverpool fans. His role in the 2005 Champions League and 2006 FA Cup finals will never be forgotten.

But Klopp's decision to allow the former England captain to only train with the club seems to be the correct one.

The German manager's arrival has changed the atmosphere around Merseyside and it's time for the Reds to start looking forward instead of back.

At this moment in time, the Anfield side are lacking a real leader in midfield, but with Jordan Henderson soon to return, it's time for the England star to kick on from his promising form last season and fill the void left by Gerrard.

Who knows, when Gerrard's contract in Los Angeles expires he could return to the club and take on a similar career path to that of Ryan Giggs at Manchester United.
