Rodgers turns attention to £30m midfielder after signing new deal


Liverpool owners ensured that stability is sustained at the club, after an unforgettable league campaign where the Reds secured Champions League football, by handing young and dynamic manager Brendan Rodgers a long term contract.

Having taken Liverpool to second in the Premier League, it was all but a formality that Fenway Sports Group will present Rodgers a new deal, where assurances were given that he would have the tools to sculpt the squad according to his wishes.


Basically Rodgers will be given funds to delve into the transfer market and buy few top quality players, which the club have been unable to do in the past few years due to the exile from Champions League.

The Daily Telegraph‘s reliable journalist Chris Bascombe reports that Liverpool board will back Rodgers to the fullest for the player he wants to bring in. And his first test will be to land Southampton’s highly rated attacking midfielder Adam Lallana.

Liverpool had lodged an opening bid of £20m, which was rebuffed as Southampton are asking £10m for to enter into any negotiation. 

Lallan’s first club, Bournemouth are entitled to 25 per cent on any sale on fee and precisely that’s why Southampton are refusing budge on his valuation. 

The 26-year-old has had a terrific campaign for the Saints, where he bagged nine league goals and earned a place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the World Cup in Brazil. A quality player who will undoubtedly enrich the squad but it remains to be seen whether Liverpool are willing to pay the price asked by Southampton.

Should Liverpool pay £30m for Adam Lallana and wrap up the deal quickly? Have your say below…
