Liverpool will look to secure Adam Lallana’s long-term future at Anfield, with the midfielder one of the next batch of players in line for a new contract
Lallana has emerged as one of manager Jurgen Klopp’s most-trusted performers this term, scoring two goals in the Premier League already this season.
And Liverpool plan to make contact with Lallana’s representatives before the end of the year and begin discussions on an extension to his current deal which expires in 2019.
Lallana joined the Reds from Southampton on the eve of Luis Suarez‘s move to Barcelona, but struggled to replicate the influence he held on the south coast.
For two seasons, the England international played a peripheral role, with the likes of Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho outshining him.
But Klopp’s arrival has prompted a revival of Lallana’s fortunes, and twice already this season he has broken the 2016/17 record for distance covered by a player in a Premier League game.
Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Divock Origi and Alberto Moreno could also be set for contract extensions, with their current deals also expiring in 2019
