Metro have a claim that our punters are interested in here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that Liverpool and Chelsea are set to battle it out for a Premier League star.
The club are keen on Adam Lallana, who has had an excellent season so far with Southampton and has become a firm favourite here in the tavern.
Our punters seem to think that there is no shock in the fact that Lallana is attracting interest, and both Chelsea and Liverpool are desperate for a player of his style in their side.
Given the point that he is looking like a certainty to be a part of England’s World Cup squad this summer, things cannot get any better for the player and it seems that a big money move could well be on the cards.
The 25-year-old has a contract at St. Mary’s that will run until 2018 and as our regulars note over a beer, he will certainly cost a fair bit – with a figure as high as £25 million being bandied about at the bar.
With Chelsea and Liverpool fighting it out for the title, we think that whoever wins that battle will have one foot in front when it comes to successfully landing Lallana.
Chelsea and Liverpool fans. Is Lallana worth as much as £25 million and is he good enough to play for the Blues or Reds? Let us know your thoughts below.
