Danny Mills reckons Adam Lallana will be wanted by many Premier League clubs this summer.
He also claimed that our Englishman would thrive at Manchester City under Pep Guardiola, who plays an intricate, passing brand of football – rather than Jurgen Klopp’s full-throttle, speed-based approach.
Lallana barely featured in 2018/19, constantly picking up niggling injuries and in total, played under 600 minutes of football for the second season running.
For this reason, we wouldn’t begrudge him a move away this summer – although don’t reckon Pep will be signing him to compete with Kevin de Bruyne and the Silvas.
“You almost forget about him but he is very gifted and a talented footballer,” he told Football Insider.
“I would almost say he more fits the Man City style, he’d be perfect for them with his short, darting runs and clever runs in behind.
“As you start to get older, you realise you are not invincible and your career is not going to go on forever.
“Liverpool will definitely want to keep him but it might come down to him wanting to reignite his career.
“If that’s the case, he’s going to go. He’s such a good player he won’t be short of interested clubs.”
With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hoping to enjoy a full season in 2018/19, and Naby Keita fully integrated – the chances for Lallana to feature in one of our no.8 roles are limited.
We already have Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson for this positions of course, who’ll likely start the Champions League Final either side of Fabinho.
