Adam Lallana (England)

The transfer saga, which was meant to be completed before the World Cup, still continues as Liverpool attempt to bring Southampton star Adam Lallana to Anfield. They’ve hit a stumbling block with the Saints’ £30million valuation for the player, but Liverpool must do all they can to sign the attacking midfielder.

Lallana is England’s answer to David Silva: great technical ability, quick feet, and an eye for a key pass. He also contributes defensively, making him a great asset both in attack and defence.

The Saints star had a sensational campaign last year, finishing the season with 10 goals and eight assists, also earning him a place in the Premier League team of the year. If he performs anywhere close for England to what he did the past season, his price is only bound to rise.
