The majority of the Anfield faithful believe that signing the Manchester City midfielder is good business.
The 29-year-old is out of contract at the Etihad Stadium and as such is a free agent this summer and able to sign for other teams.
Although the report states that Arsenal were also interested in the versatile midfielder, Milner has seemingly opted for a switch to the Merseyside club.
Liverpool are widely expected to undergo a summer revamp after missing out on the Champions League for next season, with midfield an area that needs to be strengthened due to Steven Gerrard’s departure.
With Milner ready to join, the Anfield faithful have reacted on Twitter to the news of the club’s first summer signing.
Most of the Reds fans have welcomed the midfielder as a piece of positive business, with his work ethic and the fact he is available for free standing out.
However, others remain unconvinced and feel that the Reds would be better advised in redirecting their efforts elsewhere.

It's refreshing to see a player reject more money in favour of regular football. Milner will earn big at LFC but turned down more from City.— Joseph Musker (@Musker_LFC) June 1, 2015
How you love Kuyt but slander Milner in terms of playing style is completely beyond my head. Identical players, just that Kuyt can't play CM— Liverpool Family (@lfc_family) June 1, 2015
People will still moan. But Ings, Milner & Clyne for under £20m would be a decent start to #LFC's summer transfer business if all 3 come off— Jay Riley (@Jay_78_) June 1, 2015
Milner's the sort of player there should be more of. Rejecting £165,000 a week at City to get more playing time at LFC.— Indigo (@IndigoLFC) May 28, 2015
People getting excited over James Milner.... Is this how bad its got for us now? Milner as a star signing!!?? #LFC— Ian Jones #LFC (@Popeye13_LFC) June 2, 2015
I just dont believe in a manager that believe James Milner is a key player material.— Liverpool Hardline (@LFC_Hardline) June 2, 2015
Milner isn't free. When he's 32,shot to pieces and we can't shift him because he's on 7million a year. You'll see why he's terrible business— Lynchy_LFC (@Lynchy_LFC) June 2, 2015
DELIGHTED James Milner is coming to us. MASSIVELY underrated player. He is just what we need in our midfield. A bit of proper steel. #LFC— showmethemoney (@smtm_LFC) June 2, 2015
Actually very pleased Milner is likely to sign for us, play him central with Hendo and Coutinho and we have a very balanced midfield #LFC— eddy! (@eddyrobertson) June 2, 2015
LFC making the same mistakes again. Ings & Milner type signing simply not good enough.FSG will get what they deserve next season- 8th place— LFC (@Super_LFC) June 2, 2015
Actually looking forward to seeing Milner in a Liverpool shirt. Similar to gerrard of 4 years ago, work rate, reliability and solid!!! #LFC— chris (@chrisrussell81) June 1, 2015
Hopefully we will have our first signing James Milner confirmed this week! Good buy especially on a free :) #LFC— A.D (@AnilDLFC) June 1, 2015
