According to Sky Sports Manchester City and England midfielder James Milner has held talks with both Arsenal and Liverpool about a summer move.

The experienced midfielder will be available on a free transfer with his contract at City set to expire.

Milner looks set to make a decision after England’s upcoming games against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia, but looks unlikely to stay with the Citizens.

The 29-year-old made 32 Premier League appearances last season, but started just 18 of those games in the top-flight.

Despite his limited starts in the top-flight he still managed seven assists and five goals. It seems he would be willing to stay with City this summer, but only if he was given more starts.

If he wants regular first team football then a move to Arsenal may not be the wisest of moves, as the Gunners have a plethora of midfield options, with big players already being left out of their starting line-up.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to strengthen his squad this summer after a disappointing sixth-place finish in the top-flight.

The Northern Irishman has a massive gap in the centre of his midfield from the departure of captain and legend Steven Gerrard.

Milner’s preferred position is in the centre of midfield, despite him playing at full-back and on the wing for City in recent seasons. Sometimes the midfielder is a victim of his own versatility.

Whoever signs Milner will be getting a bargain. He works hard, is versatile and is the ultimate professional.

Where will James Milner be plying his trade next season?
