Adam Lallana is set to complete a £25 million move to Liverpool, subject to a medical, as the Southampton squad continues to find itself pillaged off the back of an impressive Premier League campaign in 2013-14.
As Brendan Rodgers aspires to take Liverpool back to the summit of English football, whilst also increasing the club’s competitiveness in the Champions League, he is looking to significantly strengthen a squad which threatened to be stretched to its limits last season.
The likely departure of Luis Suarez also presents an opportunity for Rodgers to spend big, with Barcelona likely to offer a player-plus-cash deal to bring the Uruguayan to the Nou Camp.
The World Cup is the ideal opportunity for Rodgers to cast his gaze over potential replacements and other recruits. With the transfer merry-go-round in full flow, Liverpool have been linked with a whole host of names, and here are SIX of the most likely players to follow Lallana to Anfield this summer.
