Leicester City in the battle for £110,000-a-week Liverpool playmaker

It will likely be a few months yet before the summer transfer window can open for business, but Brendan Rodgers is already hopeful of raiding his former club for a free transfer.

The former Reds boss, now in charge at Leicester City, is looking to secure Adam Lallana’s signature ahead of Everton, Arsenal, Crystal Palace and West Ham. Brendan Rodgers wants to bolster the squad during the summer transfer window.

It was Rodgers who signed Adam for the Merseyside giants from Southampton, and to that end, he will already have some sort of rapport with the player, surely handing him an advantage in negotiations.

England international is a free agent at the end of the current campaign, and it’s not thought that Jurgen Klopp and the Reds are interested in offering Adam new terms, meaning he will need to look elsewhere for one final big payday.

It’s precisely that which could prove problematic in any event. Reported wages of £100,000 per week might not be sustainable in the current covid19 climate, so if Lallana wants a move anywhere, then he may have to possibly reduce any demands to see it through.
