Liverpool and Manchester United are set to battle it out for the signature of Southampton star Adam Lallana, according to the Metro.

The report suggests David Moyes has switched his attention to Lallana after being put off by Borussia Dortmund’s £40million asking price for Marco Reus.

Lallana is a much cheaper alternative, with his price tag believed to be in the region of £15million.

The 25-year-old also has the added bonus of being eligible for the Champions League in the second half of the season – whilst Reus would be cup-tied.

Lallana has enjoyed a superb season for the Saints so far, with his form proving so impressive that he earned his first senior call up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the last round of international matches.

The midfielder was perhaps the one bright spark for Hodgson’s men as they suffered consecutive friendly defeats to Chile and Germany last month, and now looks likely to make the plane for next summer’s World Cup.

Liverpool had previously been linked with Lallana, with Brendan Rodgers keen to add midfield reinforcements in January.

But it now appears United are ready to battle with their rivals, and are set to make the first official offer when the transfer window opens shortly.
