Leicester City continue chase for creative Liverpool midfielder

By | June 3, 2020

Leicester City have allegedly offered Adam Lallana a ‘long-term contract’ as the midfielder prepares to leave Liverpool on a free transfer ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The 32-year-old star has featured on 22 occasions for the Reds during the current season but is out of contract at the end of next month and will not be penning an extension at Anfield.

A number of teams are thought to be interested in the versatile midfielder, who has found the back of the net on three occasions in 34 matches at international level.

However, according to Football Insider, the Foxes have now placed a ‘long-term contract’ on the table for the ex-Southampton captain as they attempt to win the race for his signature.

Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers managed Lallana at Anfield, and it has been suggested that the duo’s relationship could see the move take place in the summer transfer market.

Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Arsenal are also said to be closely monitoring developments surrounding a player who has netted 22 times and provided 22 assists in 178 outings for Liverpool.

Elsewhere, Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka has dropped his latest hint he is ready to sign a new contract to keep him at the Gunners.

He posted a picture of him in an Arsenal kit as a child to his official Instagram page, captioned: “Kid with a dream…”

The 18-year-old wing-back has emerged as arguably Arsenal’s most promising youth star this campaign in an impressive breakthrough campaign.

His displays down the north London heavyweights’ left flank has even drawn interest from Liverpool.
