Sterling’s future has been the subject of much speculation, with Chelsea and Real Madrid among those interested in the youngster, and Gerrard feels it is vital for the Reds to keep these players at Anfield.
“They need to sign [Sterling] now,” the skipper was quoted by ESPN.
“Not just him, Jordan Henderson as well.
“When I was coming through at Liverpool, every time you got within a couple of years left your contract would be renewed and there would no worrying or panic stage but I see Henderson with a year left and I see Sterling – it is in the paper too much – and I know there is no smoke without fire.
“So, for me, the message to the club is to get these done sharpish because these are the future of the club and I want to watch this team do well, in cup finals and challenging for the league.”
