There are always different things to weigh up for a player whenever they look to move the team, but priorities might be different as their career starts to wind down.
If we look at the case of Adam Lallana, he’s 32 years old, has had a successful career and has also played for England, while he appears destined to get a Premier League winner’s medal too.
As a result, it would be understandable if he decided to take an offer to work under a familiar boss, while it’s a bonus that he might get some long term security at the end of his career too.
He’s out of the deal at Anfield this summer, and Brendan Rodgers is hoping to be reunited with a footballer he admires at Leicester City.
The report claims that Foxes have made a “long term contract offer”. Although the length isn’t specified, you have to feel that means at least three seasons.
Clearly Brendan Rodgers is still a big fan and is willing to take a risk on signing the Reds player, who has struggled with fitness and injury concerns in recent years.
The report also claims that clubs like Gunners and Spurs are interested, but it’s easy to see him going there and only being a backup footballer, so that’s no good for him at this stage of his career.
