So, Steven Gerrard is off to the MLS at the end of the season, leaving Liverpool without their talismanic midfielder next season.
It goes without saying that Gerrard is one of the best to ever pull on the famous red shirt and replacing his vision on the ball and presence on the pitch will not be easy for Brendan Rodgers.
Yes, it’s Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.
After an impressive run of form last season, Barkley made it into the England squad for the World Cup.
However, since returning from the tournament Barkley has struggled to regain the sparkle he showed last term – mainly due to injury.
But despite Barkley having a quieter season in an out-of-sorts Toffees team, Carragher still sees the Englishman as the man to fill Gerrard’s boots:
Enough of Gerrard now he's leaving. Replacement has to be Ross Barkley offer 10 million go to 12 tops job done.

While Liverpool have always been thought of as the more glamorous of the Merseyside clubs, it seems unlikely Everton will allow their prized asset to leave Goodison Park for a measly £10 million.
