Set to leave Liverpool this summer
Leicester City have reportedly made an approach to sign Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, with his contract set to expire this summer.
Lallana has been with Liverpool since 2014, where he joined from boyhood club Southampton.
Since joining, the Englishman has featured 175 times for the Reds, scoring 22 goals and assisting 22.
Despite his long history with Liverpool, his time at the club could come to an end this summer.
Lallana’s current contract is set to expire in the off-season, and he is now free to negotiate a free transfer.
Having featured for just 338 minutes in the Premier League during this campaign, Lallana looks set to look elsewhere.
Now, Leicester have reportedly made their move for the Englishman.
Lallana to the King Power?
According to Sky Sports, Leicester have made an initial approach to Lallana’s representatives over a potential move.
Lallana played under current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers during his time at Anfield, and that could prove to be key in negotiations.
According to the report: ‘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.’
It’s said that Leicester are in the market for a new winger, and Lallana is seen as ‘the perfect fit’.
Sky also claim that Liverpool have made it clear to Lallana that he will not be offered a new contract, and is free to explore his options.
Lallana will no doubt have a few clubs to pick from this summer, but Leicester City may be able to offer him Champions League football.
The Foxes are third in the Premier League, nine points above fourth-placed Chelsea.
