Liverpool attacking midfielder Adam Lallana has agreed a short-term contract extension with the Reds that will enable him to complete the remainder of the Premier League season, the club has announced.
The player’s contract was due to expire at the end of this campaign, but due to the global pandemic, the season has spilt over into the summer months – meaning an extension needed to be agreed for him to complete the season with Jurgen Klopp’s men. According to the club’s official communication, Lallana will be moving on at the end of July, ending his six-year association with Liverpool.
The 32-year-old signed for the Merseyside giants in July 2014 in a deal worth £27.9m (as per Transfermarkt.co.uk). He has gone on to make 178 appearances, as well as become a European champion last season.
The Reds are closing in on their first-ever Premier League title and with Lallana now set to stay for the remainder of the campaign, it would be, in our view, the perfect way to finish his Liverpool career.
Will you be sad to see Adam Lallana leave this summer?
The former Southampton star has started just 10% of the club’s league fixtures during this campaign, so it should come as no surprise to anybody that he will be leaving Anfield at the end of this season.
We believe that Lallana still has plenty of experience and quality to offer and therefore we’d be surprised if he was short of offers when he eventually becomes a free agent.
