Liverpool join Manchester United in race for Lallana

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool appear to have joined Manchester United and Chelsea in the race to sign Adam Lallana.

According to Goal, Liverpool - along with Tottenham - are targeting the £20m-rated Southampton midfielder, closely monitoring him as his future at Southampton becomes subject to growing doubts.

The same source further states that the Saints are prepared to sell some of their biggest assets due to a difficult financial situation, with Lallana - as well as the likes of Jay Rodriguez and Luke Shaw - possibly among that number.

Manchester United - who are struggling domestically during David Moyes' first season at Old Trafford -  have already been linked with a move for the Southampton skipper, as well some outlets even reporting that Chelsea may have made initial contact over a summer move for the player.

Given the form Lallana has displayed over recent seasons, it is certainly no surprise to see such reputable clubs clamouring for his signature.

The 25-year-old - a proud graduate of Southampton's prolific youth academy - has looked particularly impressive under the management of Mauricio Pochettino.

With nine goals and six assists in 32 Premier League appearances this season, Lallana has almost certainly assured himself of a place in Roy Hodgson's England squad - and perhaps even the starting lineup - for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Just whether Southampton will be able to keep hold of their star man in light of heavyweight transfer interest remains to be seen.

And while you would normally expect the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to lead the race for such an enormous talent, Liverpool's fantastic 2013/14 campaign - they currently lead the race for the title with just a handful of games left to play - to date must surely have them in with a chance of landing big players this summer.
