Chelsea are set to test Liverpool's resolve to hang onto Steven Gerrard with a £30 million bid for the player in the summer, according to a report from The Daily Mirror.
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly told friends that the Reds skipper has become a target as rumours of his growing disaffection with the situation at Anfield begin to spread.
With the Merseysiders in massive debt and seemingly heading towards another frustrating season, the Anfield hierarchy might well be tempted by the deal.
Whether Gerrard, 29, who signed a new four-year £25 million deal in the summer, is dissatisfied enough to consider leaving his hometown club remains to be seen.
Chelsea also have the threat of a FIFA transfer embargo still hanging over them that could mean they will be unable to deal in the close season.
