Liverpool fear they could lose out on Adam Lallana to Tottenham

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool fear they could lose out to Tottenham in the race to sign Adam Lallana this summer if the latter are able to appoint Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, reports suggest.

Southampton boss Pochettino has been mentioned as the number one target with regard to the post at White Hart Lane that was vacated by Tim Sherwood yesterday and The Daily Star suggests that such a deal could signal the end of the Reds' pursuit of Lallana.

Versatile midfielder Lallana enjoyed a superb 2013/14 campaign, captaining the Saints to an impressive top-half finish and also securing his place in Roy Hodgson's England squad for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Such a stellar campaign at St. Mary's - one which included nine Premier League goals - has seen transfer speculation gather around £30 million-rated Lallana at a rapid pace, with recent speculation having suggested that Liverpool had indeed already submitted a bid to bring the 26-year-old to Anfield.

Tottenham do not appear to have featured with any notable prominence in rumours involving Lallana of late, although one figures that may all change if indeed the talented Pochettino were to succeed Sherwood in North London.

An obvious hit with both players and fans, the Argentine has done a superb job on the South Coast and it stands to reason that he may want to continue that success with some of his better players if he were to move elsewhere.

Both Liverpool and Tottenham could certainly benefit from Lallana's abilities, with the former obviously looking to boost their squad for the Champions League and Spurs trying to return to the top four.

Lallana could yet opt to stay at Southampton, of course, something that Saints fans would obviously love to see given his influence at the club and his excellent rapport with fans.
