Cape Town - Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has emerged as a shock
transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain, who are willing to pounce when he
becomes a free agent at the end of the season.
Lallana has had a frustrating time with injuries and has
struggled to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, playing just
113 minutes of Premier League football.
The England international is due to fall out of contract at
the end of the season, and although a decision has yet to be made on his
future, there is a good chance he will not be getting a new one.
It means he will be available on a free transfer and there
will be no shortage of clubs will to offer him a fresh start away from Anfield.
One such club is PSG and Lallana would no doubt jump at the
chance to play in Paris for a couple of seasons and challenge for silverware.
The player is also said to have offers from clubs in China
and the United States but a move to PSG is sure to win the day if the terms on
offer are good enough.
Liverpool are also unlikely to stand in his way as they are
keen to get him off the wage bill and use the money to fund their own signings
in the summer.
One player that Liverpool are keen on is the Bournemouth
winger Ryan Fraser, who will also be out of contract and available on a free
transfer at the end of the current campaign.
However, the Scotland international is reported to be asking
for £100 000 a week and the departure of Lallana would help fund a switch for
the talented Cherries star.
Liverpool will also face strong competition to land Fraser
as Arsenal are among the clubs interested and the winger will be in a strong
position to organise a good deal for himself.
