Watford forward Troy Deeney believes that Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Chelsea would sign Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana.

Lallana, 31, is expected to depart Anfield come the end of the season.

Obviously no one knows when the season will be completed due to the coronavirus suspending the Premier League indefinitely, but as Lallana’s contract expires come the end of the campaign, he will depart the club on a free transfer.

Lallana has been linked with a move to Leicester City in various reports, but Deeney has named three other Premier League clubs that he thinks would sign Lallana.

The Metro quotes Deeney as saying: “Lallana can play anywhere across the front line. Tottenham would take him, Everton… Chelsea, yeah.”

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

If the reports in the media are anything to go by, it does appear as if Leicester City are the favourites to sign Lallana.

However, if two of the three clubs that Deeney has named came in for Lallana, the Englishman would have something to think about.

Lallana would not sign for Everton due to his history with Liverpool, which means you can rule them out.

Tottenham Hotpsur and Chelsea on the other hand would be decent options for Lallana.

Spurs are an attractive option because they are one of the top six clubs in England, but it does appear as if they will miss out on Champions League qualification for next season, as they sit eighth in the Premier League.

Chelsea on the other hand currently sit fourth, meaning they are a serious possibility to play in Europe’s elite competition next season.

Leicester City could be Lallana’s priority, but one of Spurs or Chelsea might just tempt the Englishman.
