Liverpool Midfielder Adam Lallana Transfer Target For PSG As Edinson Cavani Replacement

Adam Lallana is on the radar of Paris St Germain.

The England international is wanted by the French champs who have just seen Edinson Cavani depart for America.

Cavani is moving to LA Galaxy to fill the hole left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic – and that has opened up an opportunity for Lallana.

The Reds’ star, who has struggled with injuries during the past 12 months, is out-of-contract this summer and will be free to negotiate a bumper deal with the monied French club.

Lallana earns £7million-a-season on Merseyside and his lack of playing time has shown Jurgen Klopp that he can live without the forward.

The Reds’ could use that money for Ryan Fraser who has been linked strongly with a move to Anfield.

The Scot is asking £100,000-a-week from Bournemouth  to re-sign for Eddie Howe’s Cherries and that outlay, particularly on a free transfer, would be more than offset by Lallana disappearing from the club’s wage bill.

Lallana, who has also been linked with clubs in China and the MLS recently, netted the Reds’ equaliser in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United  earlier this season.

Afterwards Klopp had high praise for the midfielder.

“A wonderful story. A wonderful, wonderful, wonderful story,” the German said.

“This weekend we had a long talk in general about our situation, and he is completely relaxed and fine and knows how difficult it is at the moment to come into the team.

“But he just trains well and he deserved that; it was 25-30 minutes and he had a proper impact. Then scoring a goal… wow! That was really, really nice.

“Then the heart rate went up a bit because VAR was involved – but he said he knew it would not be offside, so that was all fine. A wonderful story. A wonderful, wonderful story.

“It would have been a better story if somebody would have scored a second one, but now we have to take that.”
