      Adam Lallana (Leicester)
      Feb 19, 2020 11:24:46 am
      Sky sports 'sources' saying Leicester are talking to lallana' agent.

      Leicester have made an initial approach to Adam Lallana's representatives about a summer move for the Liverpool midfielder.

      The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has reportedly attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs.

      He is also currently free to negotiate and sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club prior to the end of his current deal at Anfield.

      Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring Lallana to the King Power Stadium this summer, which has prompted them to declare their interest early.

      Liverpool have given Lallana permission to plan his future after making it clear to him he will not be offered a new contract by the club.

      Transfer rules dictate Lallana must have the permission of his current club if he wants to negotiate with another English side before the end of his current contract.

      New neighbours for Jürgen Klopp then.

      Probably an enticing move for Lallana, Leicester look nailed on for a Champions League spot.

      Seemed like this is where it was heading. Do you reckon he'll still be involved in games for the rest of the season? I do.

      Didn’t think English teams were allowed to make approaches for players in the final 6 months of their contract at another English team until the summer?

      Regardless though, could be a good move for him but again, regular football week in week out there isn’t going to be a sure thing.

      To do that he’d have to remain fit , had he done so I think he would have started a lot more for us, sometimes it just don’t work out  good luck to him if it comes off .

      I don't think it would of worked out for him even if he stayed somewhat fit, his career at the club I would say is underwhelming considering how much we paid for him. I figure he would like to play for a side where he would start games on a regular basis if fit, going to Leicester City he might get a few more games than with us but he will be bench player for them.

      Has it occurred to anyone that perhaps he's quite happy to sit on the bench and pick up £150k per week, not a bad way to make a living is it?

      His contract is up in the summer isn't it? I doubt leicester will pay him that much

      I could see him going to leicester then maddison getting a big money move away.

      Not saying they're the same level of player but would free up more funds for the team for leicester

      Figure after three seasons of sitting between the bench and physio table he would like to have a season or two of playing week in week out but we can only speculate. Also some reports now Soton is looking to bring him back to the south coast.

      They have Tielemens, Praet and Maddison who all play similarly to Adam so perhaps they're anticipating a departure.

      I hope wherever he goes he gets the game time and appreciation he deserves (and only scores against us when we're 4-0 up). Shame he got those injuries just as he was claiming a midfield as his own for us.

      Rodgers denying an approach being made. This coming from a man who once said there was no way we were signing Balotelli, only to then sign him.

      So likely an approach has been made.

      Would be just our luck that he leaves us and then becomes a prolific scorer, I know he scored against Manure but my one big disappointment with Adam, apart from the amount of injuries which of course were unavoidable, was his lack of goals.

      Big fan of Adam he would be a great squad player filling in when required and doing a great job. I just don't see him playing 40 or 50 games a season like he did 4 seasons ago its been about 20 since then. He isn't going to play a full season with any club is he so why leave unless its down to money and at 31 he really should have enough tucked away to be able to stay here and add silverware to his career

      In all seriousness what is it you like about Adam compared to our other midfield options? I don't mean that as any kind of wind up I really am curious what it is I'm missing regarding his contribution.

      quite often these days what players do off the ball is almost as important as when they do have it. Klopp loved Lallana because he was always first to start the press. He isn't the same as other midfield players we have we are not comparing him to them if you don't recognise what he has brought when fit over many seasons now then I am not the one to educate you.

      Why the defensive childish reaction? It was an honest question, so it's the pressing you like, it seems Jürgen disagrees, he's certainly a long way down the pecking order lately.

      Yes. He's one of the first to understand Jürgen's pressing and did that effectively. Ask any of our players and they'd tell you it's very difficult to get the ball off him. Indeed a valuable option off the bench. I get excited when he comes in knowing full well that he could hold up the midfield. And that last minute Norwich goal. I can never forget.

      You've got it all wrong, mate. Mbappe will take Shaq's place on the bench. Kai Havertz will take's Adam's seat.  ;D

      I think it's more to do with the depth of our bench tbh. When you have Ox, Origi, Keita, Milner, Shaqiri, you can't imagine Lallana getting too many games. I still like him as an option and it's true about his work rate, he's high pressing non stop whenever he comes on. Plus he does have a little bit of creativity and the occasional goal in him. It's a nice option if he's happy to carry on getting 10-15 appearances off the bench. I suspect he'll want the last couple of years of his career playing regularly in a club like Leicester or Wolves etc. though.


      He is a player that never fulfilled huge potential though

      Don’t think he will play regularly at either Leicester or a Wolves. If he wants regular game time week in week out, then he’s going to have to drop down to the relegation area of the league IMO. People expected the likes of Jay Rodriguez to be a regular at Burnley but he isn’t and even teams like Brighton are benching players like Gross who are no worse than Lallana. Going to have to go to a team like Bournemouth if he wants to play virtually every week.

      Lallana should leave ASAP. He reached his peak some some months then got injured, other than that, he was a flop for me, because he was unreliable.  Not good enough for the team now, given the squad we have.

      If he goes, we'll always have Norwich.

      Just watched the highlights of the 5-4 game back on BT and still puts a smile on my face, especially seeing the realisation dawn on Jurgens face that his glasses are fu**ed!

      He Stays .....  But He Doesn't .


      Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has agreed to extend his deal with the club until the end of the season.

      England international Lallana, 32, was set to leave on a free transfer when his contract runs out on 30 June.

      The 2019-20 season will restart on 17 June after a 100-day break because of the coronavirus pandemic and Lallana will now leave when the season ends.

      "I am really pleased to have the chance to finish this season - it means a lot to me and my family," said Lallana.

      "I feel in my time at Liverpool I've always looked to do the right thing for the team, the manager and the club in every decision I've made. I think this one fits into that category as well, so I'm buzzing to be seeing out this campaign and hopefully get to celebrate something memorable with an amazing group of people."

      Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and are on the verge of claiming their first league title in 30 years.

      Their first match after the restart is at Everton on 21 June, with their last game scheduled to be away to Newcastle on 26 July.

      Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, 36, who joined at the start of the season as back-up to Alisson Becker and Adrian but has not made an appearance, has signed a similar extension until the end of the season.

      Manager Jürgen Klopp said it was "not possible" to find words to describe Lallana's contribution since he took charge and welcomed the chance to give the former Southampton midfielder a "farewell he deserves so much".

      "I know how highly sought-after Adam is in this moment by other clubs who want him for next season, so for him this is a commitment to us and we are very appreciative to him for it," said Klopp.

      "Even the way he has handled this extension tells you all you need to know about the person and his character. A top-class professional and an even better person.

      "He wants to be here to finish the job and do it properly, but it says everything about him that his biggest concern was blocking the progress and opportunity of a player who is under contract for next season also."

      Lallana's time at Anfield has been hampered by injuries in the past two seasons and he has played 15 league games during the current campaign, scoring once.

      He moved to Liverpool from Southampton for £25m in 2014 and was signed by then-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who has been linked with signing Lallana again for Leicester City.

      Well in fairness his other option was to not get paid for a month, but it works out ok for us, gives us some extra cover.

      Lallana should leave ASAP. He reached his peak some some months then got injured, other than that, he was a flop for me, because he was unreliable.  Not good enough for the team now, given the squad we have. 

      Certainly excess to requirements right now, never really impressed even in his so called 'better years. His final touch was always always lacking as was his movement off the ball.
      He did have the occasional glory day but overall an average performer.
      Irrespective wish the lad well wherever he decides his future lies.

      He scored a few important goals. never really consistent. Apparently would encourage the younger lads which looked up to him.

      Yes injuries cost him and the team developed beyond him in his absence but we shouldn't forget just how important he was early on in the Klopp era - a crucial member of the side that moved from mid table to Champions League qualification.

      Good to see him extending his contract to cover this season because he deserves to be here and share the success.

      Lallana a crucial member of the side, when was this then? I can't remember him ever playing more than 3 games in a row

      Early on in the Klopp era, I just said it in my post.

      If you want to rewrite history and say he was injured his whole time for us then fair enough (he played 125 games across his first three seasons by the way) but the reality was for the first 18 months of Klopp's time here Lallana was as good as anyone in the squad.

      How many goals and assists did he do in those 18 uninterrupted injury free months? I'm not trying to be contrary here, I honestly don't recall him playing much or doing anything of note, he was ok but nothing special, "as good as anyone in the squad", come on that's ridiculous and you know it

      I think early on he was, A Klopp type player, could run and press with menace. Maybe the hi press game resulted in his body not being fit for purpose, however his commitment to the club was never a issue.

      Ah so it was only after Klopp arrives that he fell apart, hmm not sure about that. Anyway we'll have to agree to disagree, I know a lot of people rate Lallana very highly, I don't share that view, never have, never will, he's seems like a good pro though, well apart from when he's fighting with junior players.

      He had a very good spell in Klopp's first full season with us but very little impact since due to injuries. He's an intelligent player but too slow and fragile to cope with the intensity we play with now. He will do well at a lower level club if he stays fit.

      Think we'll have to agree to disagree but there were plenty saying he was a contender for player of the season in 16/17.

      Injuries have finished him in terms of being at a top club and it's the right time to move him on but I just don't see the point in rewriting history just to have a pop at a player.

      Gave his all every game.
      A nightmare in the box with his close control and trickery.
      A good passer.
      He didn't tackle a lot because he used a much more effective method of ushering his opponents into "safe" areas.
      He never gave opponents a minutes peace, always at them, snapping away at their heels.

      Anyone who says he wasn't good during those first couple of seasons under Klopp is talking out their hole.

      The only thing that stopped him was injuries.
      A couple of times when he was away with England.

      Your comments just enlighten your lack of expertise, Lallana although not world class has done his bit when asked, he himself would acknowledge he is no more than a squad player but he doesn’t whinge or moan, instead, he has been the ultimate professional by helping & advising the young lads at the club, a lot of players in a similar situation would happily take their wages and offer f**k all,

      I’m glad he has extended his contract, his experience is invaluable, he may not kick another ball in anger for LFC again but he remains a very good squad player who will give all he has if asked, and no one can ask for more.

      How many assists and goals did he have, genuine question, I remember a player who pressed very well, I'll give him that, but who had very little end product besides a lovely Cruyff turn.

      He scored this last minute winner against Norwich. I was so happy and celebrated like mad. He became my idol.

      But I was ready to smash him to bits when he didn’t deliver goals and assists. I don’t care what Klopp thinks since I think my opinion is the best. Fans are bigger than managers. In fact we pay the club which pays them. I still consider meself a world class fan who demands world class results with zero tolerance. :f_whistle:

      I'll never forget him, the scorer of a last minute goal in one of the 3 best games I have ever seen.

      His pressing was sic. His goal against swansea where he pressed Fabanski into hitting him with the cross was wild. YNWA Adam

      I was so happy when we signed him. Always rated him and loved watching someone that's technically sound and always willing to fight. Sad that he had so many injury stop-starts.

      I'll never forget him jumping into Jürgen's arms, that's enough for me.
