Adam Lallana set for Liverpool medical after £25m fee agreed with Southampton [Sky Sports]
Adam Lallana is set to become the latest player to leave Southampton according to Sky Sports.
The skillful midfielder is on his way to Liverpool for a medical after a £25 million fee was agreed with Southampton.
Southampton will receive £18.75m fee for Adam Lallana and Bournemouth will get £6.25m due to their 25% sell-on clause, according to the BBC.
The imminent departure of Lallana will follow that of Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert as Southampton are being raided for their good work last season.
The reaction to the fee has prompted some criticism as did Shaw’s, with the assessment being that the price was vastly inflated due to each player being English.
