Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has applauded the “incredible” impact of James Milner, with the talented midfielder close to finalizing a move to Brighton.
BBC Sport understands Brighton are closing in on a deal for the 37-year-old, who will be out of contract at Anfield in the summer.
He has won six major honours, including the Premier League and Champions League, since joining the Reds in 2015.
“[Milner] He knows how highly I value him,” Klopp said on Friday.
“He is an incredible part of this team and I would love to work together with him even longer.
“I said a couple of times nothing positive that happened in the last seven and a half years would have happened without James Milner.”
