Adam Lallana has reaffirmed his love for Liverpool by dismissing rumours linking the player with a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain
What a year it has been for Adam Lallana. The former Southampton midfielder has become an integral part of the first-team at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp and Klopp’s deployment of Lallana has seen a visible improvement in the player’s form.
Lallana is now one of the first names on the team sheet, whenever fit, for Liverpool and even for England, something that seemed far-fetched a while ago.
3 goals and 5 assists with more than half of the season yet to pass, Lallana’s form has attracted the attention of defending Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain with the French giants rumoured to be preparing a £40m January swoop for the talisman.
However, Adam Lallana dismissed speculation linking him to Paris Saint-Germain and a possible exit from Liverpool as he spoke to Sky Sports, addressing the rumours. The 28-year-old was appreciative of the rumours, but reaffirmed that he loves his football at Liverpool and that he is set for a long-term stay at Anfield.
“It’s a great compliment to be spoken of in the same breath as a club like PSG with those sorts of numbers, but I’m absolutely loving my football at the minute under this boss and I can only see myself being here for the long term,” the player was quoted by Daily Mirror.
Adam Lallana also spoke about the squad harmony being at an all-time high and a level which is difficult to achieve at any club. The 28-year-old even spoke that the thought of leaving Liverpool is yet to cross the player’s mind and that he is fully focused on achieving great things under a manager as great as Klopp.
“I love it here at the minute, especially since the manager has come in. We have each other’s trust and you don’t always get that at clubs. The thought of leaving Liverpool has never entered my mind.”
Adam Lallana’s current form seems to match his comments of feeling at home at Liverpool and the Kop army would be hopeful the core sticks together to get the iconic club back to their previous glory days, something which does not seem as far-fetched with the charismatic Jurgen Klopp at the helm.
