“Steven Gerrard – and this will be a really big surprise – is always so welcome at Liverpool,” said Klopp earlier this week.

“Everything we will talk to each other about will stay in these talks. That is how I know Stevie and that is how I am.

“Nobody should be worried that we don’t have space for Steven Gerrard. Everything will be fine, 100 per cent.”

Gerrard made over 700 appearances for Liverpool before departing for America in 2015. Many expect him to take up a coaching role with the club's academy players when he does confirm his retirement from playing.
