Despite being quoted a £30million fee, it doesn’t seem as though Liverpool are finished in their pursuit of Adam Lallana just yet. Brendan Rodgers remains keen on re-uniting the 26 year old with Rickie Lambert at Anfield for the coming season.

Although the majority of Liverpool fans would welcome Lallana with open arms, there are real concerns that the Merseysiders’ are going to pay over the odds for the midfielder that racked up nine goals and six assists in the Premier League this season. With the premium placed on British players, there is the feeling that there are more affordable alternatives on the market.

Unless Liverpool can negotiate Southampton down from their current valuation, they would be wise to consider their options. And where better to look for alternatives than the World Cup, a tournament which has so far been characterised by brilliant attacking play.

Bearing this in mind, here are SIX alternatives to Adam Lallana that Liverpool should monitor in Brazil.
