Liverpool could turn away from the chance of signing Southampton’s Adam Lallana as they believe the club are demanding too high of a transfer fee, Daily Star reports.

The Saints are making it difficult for Brendan Rodgers to pursue a move due to the fact that they want £26-million including add-ons for the England international, which will eventually raise the fee to about £30-million.

However, the Anfield side have already made a £20-million offer earlier and will not be looking to spend most of their funds on trying to land one player.

Negotiation are currently ongoing, but if a proper deal isn’t agreed before the start of the World Cup, the Reds could look elsewhere for midfield reinforcements.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will have to pay 25% of the transfer funds back to Lallana’s former club Bournemouth, therefore they will want to make a profit on the sale of their star player.

Rodgers is also targeting the midfielder’s team-mate Dejan Lovren, who is valued at £8-million to replace Daniel Agger at the back, with the Danish defender looking quite likely to leave during the upcoming window.

    great news for saints fans, lallana is the heart of the team and so much more than a superb player. 30 mil would ‘ant buy a replacement of his quality.

    Liverpool losers hoping that a Southampton team they’ve copied for the last season will sell their players at a low value, just because their club was good in the 1970s.
    Both players in question have stated that they’re happy at Southampton, with Lallana going so far as to say he wants “to progress with the club”. Saints don’t need to sell, the players don’t want to leave, so there are 2 reasons they can play hard ball in negotiations.
    Lallana is worth at least £30m, fact. Why?
    1) Proven in premier league.
    2) Unique style.
    3) 2 footed player.
    4) Under contract for another 4 years.
    5) English!

    Name an English alternative with the same qualities and ability – there isn’t one! £30m or go look elsewhere! Only Liverpool lose if the deal doesn’t happen, but Southampton, Lallana, Premier League and possibly even England all lose if it does! Feel free to go somewhere else, do southampton and everyone else a favour, it’s not like you’re in the market for any trophies anyway!

    Lallana – a proven Prem player who’s vast experience at all levels of the English game. Knows what loyalty is though – that does not come cheap.

    25m for Lallana or 20m for Barca’s Pedro? No wonder even the Mancs dropped their interest in Lallana. They are trying to invite competition to drive up his price but decided not to sell s there was no competition. Dnipro did that with Konoplyanka last window, Soton is using the same tactic this window.

    Whether he’s worth 25 million or 30 million or whatever is irrelevant. Saints neither need or want to sell Lallana so I hope they continue to play hardball and put Liverpool off.

    The key point is that if a club do not want to sell a player then is not what the player is worth it’s how much will it cost to replace him!! I.e. Lallana’s value is probably 18m, his value to be replaced is 2x£15m players! Therefore £30m!! Look at it this way…..if someone knocked on your door and asked to by your house and you didn’t want to sell, then you would inflate the price!!
