Whilst Jurgen Klopp is, undoubtedly, the face of modern day Liverpool – there is one figure at the club that the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see remain at the club for the foreseeable future…
Much was made about the significance of Coutinho earlier in the season, before an injury ruled him out of contention towards the end of the year. Certainly, the little Brazilian was magic in the heart of the Liverpool midfield – and many were questioning whether any other players could step up and cover the Brazilian’s seismic impact. Over the last few weeks, though, they have certainly got their answer…
Adam Lallana is, of course, the man in question – and over the last few weeks, the English midfielder has transformed his game and quickly turned into the driving force behind Jurgen Klopp’s continued success at the helm of the Reds.
Offering dynamic passing, defending, goals and assists – there is seemingly nothing that he can’t do. Pushed into more of a central role by Jurgen Klopp, Lallana has become the focal point of Liverpool – and in truth, Coutinho faces a fight to get back in ahead of him at this rate.
Liverpool’s style, as developed by Klopp, requires constant work and pressing – and Lallana is at the forefront of that. Constantly moving and constantly closing, everything that the side does revolves around him. It isn’t just his work rate that is impressive, with the midfielder’s stats backing it up too. His record of 7 goals and 7 assists this season is up there with the best in Europe – and that is certainly the totem pole that Lallana deserves to be on.
Klopp’s revolution is quickly taking place, and Lallana is at the centre of it – and simply put, he needs to be there for the foreseeable future, too.
The good news for the Liverpool fans in the Tavern, then, is that Lallana does look likely to stay – with a new deal, according to the Express, in the offering. The Englishman is vital for Klopp’s cause – and the German clearly realises it.
