But Gerrard said: "For me, it (contract talks) is not a priority at the moment.
"The most important thing for me now is to move on to the West Ham game. I want to finish the season strong. I'm feeling good.
"Of course, I'm happy that the club are mentioning new contracts, but it's not important at the moment.
"What we need to do is put pressure on for that European place. A lot of the teams above us need to play each other.
"We're hoping there's a few slips ups above us and we can capitalise but it's important that we take maximum points."
