Gerrard, 36, announced earlier this week that he will leave Los Angeles Galaxy in December after 18 months in Major League Soccer.

MK Dons are currently 21st in League One and without a manager following the departure of Karl Robinson last month.

The BBC, which did not cite any sources, said it was unclear if Gerrard would be offered a player-manager role.

Speaking on Tuesday, Gerrard said, "Although I'm going back to England to live, it's certainly not the end of me in football terms. I've got a lot of things to consider over the coming weeks and months, and I'm sure I'll be back involved in the game. I've got options on the pitch, off the pitch."

Gerrard has also been linked with moves to Celtic and Newcastle United.

He left Liverpool in 2015 after a glittering 17-year Anfield career in which he eight major trophies including the 2005 Champions League.

He was also capped 114 times by England, making him his country's fourth most-capped player.
