According to 90min, James Milner is set to leave Liverpool in the summer, and Everton are reportedly interested in signing him, reports the GN.
The report suggests that the 37-year-old won’t be offered a new contract at Anfield, which has made him available for other clubs. Brighton is said to be close to signing Milner, but Everton, Leeds, and Nottingham Forest are also monitoring the situation. The three teams, who are all struggling with the threat of relegation, are hoping that Milner will wait until the end of the season to consider his options.
The news of James Milner potentially leaving Liverpool in the summer has come as a surprise, and despite the rivalry between the Merseyside clubs, it is worth noting that Milner is one of the most experienced players in the Premier League. He has played for some of the biggest clubs in the country, maintains his fitness, and has achieved a lot of success. It would be a smart move for any club to sign him, but currently, Brighton appears to be the front runner.
It’s understandable why Milner would be interested in joining the Seagulls, as they are known for their innovation and constant improvement. It’s likely that the Brighton board has been monitoring Milner for some time and he could thrive under Roberto De Zerbi. As for Everton, transfer planning is probably not their priority right now, as the club is fighting to avoid relegation. It’s challenging for Sean Dyche to plan for the future in these circumstances.
