Leicester City make approach for out-of-favor Liverpool midfielder

The 31-year-old Liverpool midfielder who has started only 3 Premier League games this season will be out of contract in the summer.

Leicester City have made an approach for Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, as they attempt to sign the 31-year-old on a free transfer in the summer, according to a report from Sky Sports.

The England international, who will be out of contract at the end of the season, has reportedly attracted interest from several top-flight English clubs in the past few months.

His contractual situation means that Lallana is free to negotiate as well as sign a pre-contract agreement with a non-English club even before his current deal expires at Anfield.

Liverpool won’t stand in the way of the player leaving the club for free in the summer, with the Premier League leaders having already made it clear to the England international that they won’t be offering him a new contract.

Brendan Rodgers, the former Liverpool boss who signed Lallana for the Merseyside club in 2014, is keen to join his forces with the former Southampton midfielder once again next season.

Lallana was one of the most important players during his first two seasons at the club for manager Jurgen Klopp after the German took charge of the Reds in 2015.

However, after suffering a slew of injuries during the German’s five-year-and-ongoing stint at the club, the England international has fallen down the pecking order.

The arrival of Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain from Arsenal and Naby Keita from RB Leipzig has further diminished the importance of Lallana for the reigning Premier League leaders in recent years.

And with Takumi Minamino signing for the European champions last month, and both Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum showing no signs of slowing down, the 31-year-old has become the seventh-choice midfielder for Klopp this season.

Where will Lallana fit-in at Leicester?

Sky Sports News reports that the Foxes who are currently occupying third place in the Premier League table want to sign a winger ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Rodgers sees Lallana, whom he coached during the duo’s time at the Merseyside, as the perfect fit for that position in his side.

His pace might have gone down with the passage of years, but Lallana still has the trickery as well as the guile to left opposition defenders in his wake.

Provided Leicester are able to convince him with a lure of first-team football as well as the chance of once again playing in the Champions League, it might turn out to be a mutually beneficial deal for both sides.
