Adam Lallana has decided to stay put at Anfield and fight for his place despite interest from several Premier league clubs, this is according to reports.
Following the lack of game time at the club, Lallana has been recently linked with a move away from Anfield this summer. However, it appears that the 31-year-old has decided against leaving the club at least this summer.
The star has entered the final year of his contract and if he is not handed a new contract, he could walk away as a free agent from Liverpool next summer. Three Premier league clubs are lurking around to sign him but he is looking to secure an extension, reports Footballinsiders.
Lallana was quizzed about his future after Liverpool won the Champions League and he said:
“Yeah, absolutely no question about it. I couldn’t be happier here, winning Champions Leagues. I know my ability & I know what I can give.
“The gaffer & his staff and the recruitment guys have all made it clear they know I have a big part to play with what’s to come next, so I’m buzzing with that. No question my future is here and I can’t wait for what’s next.” As claimed by football writer Simon Peach of the Press Association.
Lallana was largely a bit-part player for Liverpool last season. Since joining the club from Southampton in the summer of 2014, he has featured 156 times in the colours of the Reds.
There is no telling if he can get into the first team of Klopp next season.
