Some Southampton fans have been left fuming after Darren Bent’s comments about the club potentially signing Adam Lallana in the future.

In a recent interview with Football Insider, Bent was talking about Lallana and he feels that Southampton will be ‘perfect’ for the midfielder. He also went onto say that he does see Lallana ‘going back to Southampton’ in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Would have Lallana back at St. Mary's?

Yes, would be a very good signing

Yes, would be a very good signing

No, its pointless

No, its pointless

These comments were relayed on Twitter recently, and when Saints fans heard about it, they were fuming at not just Bent but about the potential idea of bringing Lallana back to St. Mary’s.

Liverpool signed Lallana, who is valued at £10.8 million (as per Transfermarkt), from Southampton in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £25 million and since then, he has made 175 appearances in all competitions for the club. He has a tally of 22 goals and 22 assists for the Anfield-based side.

Lallana’s last season at St. Mary’s was the 2013-14 campaign under Mauricio Pochettino. He had made 42 appearances in all competitions for the club and got an impressive tally of ten goals and eight assists for the side.

What do we think?

Lallana’s current deal at Liverpool runs out in the summer, with the Reds thought to have the option to trigger a one-year extension. If Lallana is available on a free transfer in the summer, perhaps Southampton should sign him considering how he would increase the depth and experience the team has.
