Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler is considering playing in the United States, according to New England Revolution coach Steve Nicol.
The 31-year-old forward is out of contract at Anfield at the end of the season and he has ye to be offered a new deal by the club.
Nicol believes Fowler could be tempted by a move across the Atlantic, although he warned that he would not receive anything like the salary David Beckham is getting at Los Angeles Galaxy.
“At the moment the first thing is the financial side,” said Nicol.
“We’ve spoken, but as of yet there’s nothing been settled. He’s really just dipping his foot in the water here. It’s something he’s thinking about.”
Nicol has some money to spend after selling Clint Dempsey to Fulham in January.
“Through the sale of Clint we have some money available,” he said.
“But the problem we have is that, because of the type of money David Beckham has got, a lot of people think everybody has that kind of money, which is not the case.”
Fowler’s hopes of extending his Anfield career have been been put under threat by the recent signing of Ukrainian striker Andriy Voronin from Bayer Leverkusen.
“He’s getting his ducks in a row. Whether he gets a contract at Liverpool or whether he moves on, he’s dipping his foot in the water,” said the Revolution boss.
