Liverpool to reject negotiations for Southampton star

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.
