Adam Lallana may have to force Liverpool transfer

Adam Lallana may reportedly have to push for a transfer to Liverpool if he is to complete a move from Southampton this summer. The Saints captain is a member of England’s 23-man squad for the tournament in Brazil, and Liverpool are hoping to conclude much of their business before then.

Liverpool have already been in touch with Southampton proposing a £20 million deal for the midfielder, but Southampton are reported to be holding out for a figure around £25 million. And, according to The Guardian, it may be that Lallana has to get involved himself in order for the transfer to progress.

Brendan Rodgers held a recruitment meeting with the Liverpool hierarchy on Tuesday as he bids to reinforce a team that came agonisingly close to secure a first league title in 24 years. Lallana, it would appear, has been identified as a key target, and Liverpool’s prospects of signing the player will have been helped by their return to Champions League football.

Lallana scored nine goals and provided six assists to earn a place in the PFA team of the season, and has spoken of a desire to play in European football’s premier club competition. He could, of course, achieve with Liverpool were he to move to Anfield.

The 26-year-old could be part of a summer transfer window exodus from Southampton, with Luke Shaw - also named in the England squad - expected to secure a move to Manchester United.
