Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has refused to comment on whether the Foxes are interested in Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana.
Lallana’s contract at Liverpool expires come the end of the season, which means he can join another club on a free transfer.
Lallana is expected to leave, as he is ultimately looking for more minutes on the pitch. The midfielder was a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s XI during the 2016-17 season, but injuries have plagued him since.
Lallana was originally signed by Rodgers when he was in charge of Liverpool, and there is potential for the pair to reunite at the King Power Stadium.
However, Rodgers isn’t adding any speculation to the various reports that suggest Lallana could be at Leicester City next season.
“Adam is a fantastic player and one I brought into Liverpool,” Rodgers said, as quoted by the Mirror.
“I have been aware of his talents since he was a young player at Southampton.
“He has done brilliantly [at Liverpool] and I’m sure he will be weighing up his options.
“But I don’t need to speak about that now. We’ve spoken about that all through January. I don’t need to speak about the summer transfer window.
“I would only add he is a top-class player.”
A move to Leicester City would not be the worst option for Lallana. They appear to be Champions League-bound, meaning he could still play in Europe’s elite competition. He would also be playing under a manager who does rate him highly.
Nonetheless, it will be a shame to see Lallana go, as he has always been a handy option for the Reds. But, one can understand why he would like to try a new challenge.
