It’s been a while since Adam Lallana has had a significant impact on the Liverpool team, and it’s still a surprise that the playmaker is still at the club.
The former Southampton captain has long been a forgotten man at Anfield, once a key player, Lallana is now merely a squad member at best and a figure who Liverpool fans can be excused off for forgetting he still played on Merseyside.
Lallana has been in need of a move for some time now, and this summer could be the period we finally see the former England Player of the Year make the move away from Liverpool as, according to the Express, the playmaker could be set to leave the club and return to former side Southampton.
It will be a much-needed move not just for Lallana, who deserves a return to regular Premier League football after sitting on the sidelines for so long, but also for Liverpool, who can do with shaving some excess wage off the bill as well as downsizing their midfield pool this summer.
The reported £13 million move will be a financial loss on Liverpool’s part, who signing Lallana for a reported fee of £25 million back in 2014, but a £12 million loss will be worth it for the club who desperately need to move on the 31-year-old playmaker.
Liverpool have failed to be ruthless enough in the past few windows with Lallana, but now is the time to move on the playmaker who has hardly featured for the club and is in need of a new start somewhere else.
Liverpool fans, should have Lallana been sold in previous transfer windows? Let us know!
