A deal could be wrapped up by the end of the week with Albion's transfer activity expected to gather pace now boss Tony Pulis has returned from the United States following their three-game tour.

Lambert struggled to make an impact at Liverpool after a move from Southampton last summer with the 33-year-old scoring just three times in 36 appearances.

He rejected a deadline day move to Aston Villa in February with the forward insisting he did not want to leave Liverpool after just half a season.

But the England international will also fall down the pecking order on Merseyside with the impending arrival of Christian Benteke, with the Aston Villa striker set to complete a £32.5million transfer to Anfield.

Sterling became the most expensive English player when he joined Manchester City for £49m.

The Reds had already secured the services of Brazilian Roberto Firmino who was touted as a like-for-like replacement, but Rodgers seemed to deny this.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website on the club's tour of Australia, Rodgers said:

It's not so much [about] a direct replacement for Raheem, it's just about improving the squad. We've brought in a number of really good players and you add that to what we've already got and the balance in the team looks strong. There's not a need, I didn't feel, for a direct replacement for Raheem.

– Brendan Rodgers, Manager Liverpool
