I don't think he's particularly settled in the MLS and LA in particular. Robbie Keane is putting him in the shade as their cool, veteran European player. If he still wants to play, maybe he thinks he can pick up a paycheque in the SPL for not much effort. However, I don't think LA would want to give up on their investment so easily. It's probably an attached rumour just because Brendan Rodgers is your new manager. I thought the two didn't like each other (or was that Benitez?) so it might not be true.
