Liverpool face a tough task replacing Steven Gerrard when he exits at the end of the season for LA Galaxy.

But Brendan Rodgers is keeping a keen eye on Hannover skipper Lars Stindl since his return from injury as he looks to find the man to fill his boots.

A versatile and hard working 26-year-old, Stindl is now playing in slightly more advanced role and it's paid off with the player notching three goals and two assists in just seven appearances, the same amount he got in 31 appearances last year.

Clearly hitting his peak, the Hannover skipper, if he can stay injury free, looks like he could be an excellent signing for the Reds with his current club's sporting director, Dirk Dufner, saying: "He's our most important and valuable player."
