Gerrard had been out of work since being sacked by Villa in October 2022.

He had previously rejected an offer from Al-Ettifaq last month before performing a U-turn to take over the club on Monday.

After signing a two-year deal with the Saudi Pro League side, he is now looking to bolster his squad with Premier League experience.

According to MailOnline, Gerrard is keen to sign both Henderson and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
