Turning 32 this year, the attacking midfielder’s contract at Anfield expires on 30.06.2020; despite having an option for a further year, the Reds do not seem keen on extending his stay at the club. As a result, the England international will be available on a free transfer come this summer – something that seems like a bargain for a player of his characteristics.
Lallana joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 for a fee of €31 million. However, he failed to live up to his potential due to sustaining a multitude of injuries; he has missed 67 matches in all competitions since joining Liverpool to date. Although injury prone, Lallana is good at running into channels and supplying a solid final ball. This is something that Lazio currently relies heavily on Luis Alberto for; if he is to get injured, creativity is lost in the midfield.
As the club have had great success in signing Liverpool players in recent years – both Luis Alberto and Lucas Leiva signed for the Biancocelesti for a small fee and have since turned into key figures for Simone Inzaghi in Rome – it comes as no surprise that Igli Tare is once again hunting in the North West of England.
