Chelsea are set to make a shock deal to bring Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to the club.

The Stamford Bridge club are lining up a sensational bid to land the
Liverpool skipper at the end of the season when he leaves Liverpool
after a 20-year career at Anfield.

According to the latest reports at the Metro, the Blues are
planning to land the player on a short-term loan deal before the player
joins up with MLS outfit LA Galaxy in February.

Boss Jose Mourinho has long admired the 34-year-old and has failed in his previous attempts the sign the Kop legend.

Given that Gerrard has been a one club man his entire career it would
be hugely surprising if he were to consider a move to another Premier
League side, even on a short term basis.

Gerrard joined Liverpool as an eight year old and has served the club
with distinction for 17 seasons though never secured a Premier League
crown, a move to Chelsea could perhaps offer the former England man the
chance to correct that.

Mourinho has seen Lampard make a real impact at the Etihad Stadium
and may feel Gerrard could offer a strong back-up option next term.

Manchester City are also rumoured to be interested in securing
Gerrard on a short-team deal, but Brendan Rogers’ Liverpool are
confident if the midfielder joins any club in the Premier League it will
be the Reds.
