Adam Lallana’s time at Liverpool is coming to an end.
The big fat Liverpool quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Anfield?
At least that is if The Telegraph’s report on the future of the 31-year-old is to be believed. They are saying that Jurgen Klopp is resigned to losing the former Southampton man for free in the summer. He has just one year left on his contract and, although he does have a one-year extension clause in his deal, it looks like that is unlikely to be exercised.
This update has led to popular Twitter account @LFCFansCorner asking their followers if they would either like to see him stay at the club during this transfer window and therefore see him move for nothing in a few months, or whether they would sell him for a fee before the end of January.
Klopp “is resigned to losing Lallana for free this summer” according to The Guardian.
If a team made us an offer this month of say, £8M to £10M, would you accept?#LFC

The supporters, it seems, are torn. Some would be willing to let him depart.
Sell him and recall Grujic maybe?

Sell and play Curtis Jones instead.

The 34-time England international is certainly not a huge part of his manager’s plans – he has started just seven matches in all competitions this season – and given that a new deal has not yet been struck, that indicates that any fee they would receive now would be taken with great pleasure by the club’s hierarchy.
However, others believe that he should stay until the end of the campaign.
I don’t think we should let him go right now. He’s been phenomenal when called upon and is proving to be a very good squad player.

Not for me. He’s becoming increasingly important. We need everyone for second half of this season. I’d also offer him a 2-3 year contract. Why lose players for free when they still offer something?

No, his doing great job when called on and out of respect for him I’d keep him. £8m isn’t worth it.

Not a chance. He’s likely to play a big part in the last few months.

Lallana has at least proven to be versatile this term, playing in a number of positions in the midfield. He still has a role to play in this side in the short term, even if it just to provide cover.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool even have a decision to make this month.
In other news, this 22-year-old is as good as Sadio Mane at his peak.
