Leicester City planning summer swoop for Liverpool out-of-favour midfielder

By | February 28, 2020

Leicester City are reportedly eyeing a swoop for Adam Lallana this summer, as he seems set to depart Liverpool on a free transfer.

As per BBC Sport, it has been suggested that the decision has been taken by the Merseyside giants to let the 31-year-old midfielder’s contract run down with no plans to agree on a renewal.

With that in thought, he’ll be thinking about his future and finding a possible solution from next campaign onwards, and it appears as though he could be handed an opportunity to continue to play Premier League football.

According to Sky Sports, Leicester City have approached his agents as they look to step up their pursuit to land his signature, with Brendan Rodgers said to be eager to snap him up to bolster his Leicester squad next campaign.

It comes as the Foxes remain in third place in the Premier League table after 26 matches, as they look to be in a strong position to secure Champions League football.

Adding a player with Adam Lallana’s experience and quality will no doubt help them compete on multiple fronts moving forward, and securing his services on a free transfer would obviously be smart business.

That said, injuries have been a real problem for the ex-Southampton star since his arrival at Anfield in 2014, as he made just 31 matches in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons combined.

He’s improved this season with 19 matches to his name already, but it appears as though it won’t be enough to convince Liverpool to keep him, and so joining Rodgers and Leicester’s force for success could be an appealing challenge for him at this stage of his career.

Naturally though, with Liverpool seeing to dominate both domestically and in Europe, it will be bitterly disappointing for Adam Lallana to have to leave Merseyside, but he could have a top alternative lined up.
