Adam Lallana’s future at Anfield has been thrown up in the air as the Reds busy transfer window has included the recruitment of two new centre midfielders, Team Talk reports.

The English midfielder, who signed from Southampton in 2014 for £25 million, made only eleven Premier League appearances last season in an injury-hit campaign on Merseyside.

With the recent acquisitions of midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho, Lallana’s place in the team could be in serious jeopardy, with the club willing to listen to offers for the midfielder.

Lallana, 30-years-old, was a key part of the Reds team during his first three seasons at the club, both under Brendan Rodgers and current manager, Jurgen Klopp. However, he picked up several injuries last term which restricted his time on the pitch.

The Reds have already lost German midfielder, Emre Can to Juventus on a free transfer with the 24-year-old’s contract failing to be renewed in time. Despite this surprise exit, which could have freed up space for Lallana in Klopp’s plans, the club are still looking to further strengthen as they are preparing bids for Stoke City winger, Xherdan Shaqiri and are still chasing Nabil Fekir from Lyon.

Lallana has been deployed in various positions for Liverpool, particularly under Klopp. He was also kept out of the side last season with the consistent performances of forward-trio Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool, should they sell Lallana, are only confident of recovering around half of the £25 million they spent on the midfielder.
