Though they took some convincing, the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are starting to fall in love with a certain Adam Lallana.
Signed for £25m two summers ago, the 28-year-old had often flattered to deceive upon his arrival from Southampton while under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers.
However, the start to this season has been a positive one for the England international, who has scored three goals for club and country thus far.
Utilised as a roaming central midfielder under Jurgen Klopp in a 4-3-3 formation, the former Saints skipper is finally looking like money well spent.

They claim that the Kop titans are ready to offer the silky technician a new deal to reward his improvement as they look to tie him down for the long-term future.
Currently under contract until 2019 , the Merseyside locals are in vocal agreement with the claims.
It is understood that Lallana himself sees his future at Anfield after emerging as one of Jurgen Klopp’s lieutenants.
