Brighton and Burnley want to sign Liverpool midfielder James Milner in the summer

Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley are keeping tabs on Liverpool midfielder James Milner ahead of the summer, reports The Athletic.

The 37-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season at the Merseyside club.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp wants the club to keep Milner beyond this season.

However, Liverpool have not indicated they are willing to do that, and clubs are already circling.

Milner moved to the Anfield club from Manchester City in 2015 and has played 325 games across all competitions.

The former England international has started ten of the 37 matches he has featured in this term.

He has featured at right-back and midfield, and while the Liverpool board reckon it is time for both parties to part ways, Brighton and Burnley want him.

The Seagulls have evaluated the matter internally and are determined to bring Milner to the Amex Stadium.

Clarets manager Vincent Kompany and Milner played together at Man City, and the Belgian is eyeing a reunion.

Burnley could do with his huge experience and versatility as they look to impress upon returning to the Premier League.

Brighton also need reinforcements with qualification for European football on the cards.

They are eighth in the English top flight with eight games remaining.

Liverpool, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are standing in their way as they eye a spot in the top seven.
