Adam Lallana has no intention of leaving Liverpool, despite being flattered by the links to French giants PSG.
Rumours suggested the Parisians were lining up a £40m offer for our 28-year-old, who returned from his groin injury yesterday in the disappointing defeat to Bournemouth.
We were 3-1 up against the Cherries when Lallana replaced Sadio Mane and we lost the game 4-3, but it’s still great to have him back considering his superb performances during the season to date.
Deployed in the central midfield three, rather than up top, Lallana’s provided us bundles of energy, creativity and a smooth transition between defence and attack.
“I love it here at the minute, especially since the manager has come in,” Lallana told Sky Sports.
“We have each other’s trust and you don’t always get that at clubs. The thought of leaving Liverpool has never entered my mind.
“It’s a great compliment to be spoken of in the same breath as a club like PSG with those sorts of numbers, but I’m absolutely loving my football at the minute under this boss and I can only see myself being here for the long term.”
Jurgen Klopp loves Lallana, and will likely start him next week at home to West Ham.
This means there’s only one spot in the side for either Emre Can or Gini Wijnaldum on the other side of Jordan Henderson in the central three.
