Serie A outfit Inter Milan are reigniting their interest in Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, according to reports.
The club, who recently sacked Coach Frank de Boer, reached out to Gerrard last month before firing De Boer. Inter want the MLS player to contribute his experience for the rest of the season after it was announced that Gerrard would not play in America beyond January.
There are quite a number of playing and coaching options for Gerrard but the player has remained mum about his future plans. League One club Milton Keynes Dons want Gerrard to be their new boss and the former Three Lions skipper without Italian football experience might not be keen on joining the Serie A strugglers as he looks for a rebound after an underwhelming time in America. Inter Milan place 9th in the Serie A, being 13 points behind log leaders Juventus. On the other hand, Gerrard might use the opportunity to play in a relatively top side before he retires from professional football.
Inter are looking at cutting their losses after summer signings all flopped. Midfielders, Euro 2016 champion Joao Mario cost £40 million while Ever Banega is well compensated though he joined for free. Gerrard would be pleased with a return to Anfield but the capacity in which he would return remains unknown.
Jurgen Klopp might not be keen on him returning as a player, particularly with his current form but the club’s management might arrange a managerial position for the legend. Talks with MK Dons are still in the early stages and it remains unknown if Gerrard would want to coach a League One side.
Inter are reportedly eyeing Lazio player Lucas Biglia. Inter coach Stefano Pioli managed the player at Lazio and would be happy to do so again. It would cost Milan in the region of €20 million to get Biglia and he could serve as a replacement for Geoffrey Kondogbia.
Also, Inter could submit a bid for Brazilian Oscar as the player falls out of favour at Chelsea. A bid was rejected during the summer but the new 3-4-3 formation at Stamford Bridge could send Oscar to San Siro soon.
