The Telegraph have reported that Liverpool are set to tie down Adam Lallana to a long-term deal, with the England midfielder ready to sign a new four-year £150,000 a week contract to remain at Anfield until 2021.
Adam Lallana joined Liverpool in 2014 after fourteen fruitful years with Southampton. And after leading the Saints to back-to-back promotions and a Top 10 finish, he took the next step in his career to move to Anfield in a for £25 million.

Following Jurgen Klopp’s appointment at the helm at Anfield, Lallana immediately became a key figure for his side and has been consistently improving since then. A change of roles has enabled Lallana to take his level up a notch, with the 28-year-old deployed in a deeper midfield role.
With Klopp giving him the freedom to express himself, Lallana has thrived as he has well and truly evolved as a midfielder with his dangerous, darting runs, eye for goal and clever movement.
And the Englishman has combined magnificently with the attacking trio of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane as well to make Liverpool one of the most dangerous attacks in the Premier League.
He has been a handy contributor Liverpool’s attacking output himself, with seven goals and as many assists in 22 Premier League matches to show for his efforts.
Needless to say, Lallana is a vital cog in Klopp’s plans and Liverpool are now all set to tie him down for his peak years, with the England international all set to pen a new four-year contract that will see him earn £150,000 a week.
Lallana will be the latest big name player to renew his deal with Liverpool after Philippe Coutinho signed a new long-term contract last month to become the club’s highest wage earner of all time. Lallana’s commitment to Liverpool will also thwart the attempts of PSG to sign with the French champions heavily linked with him in recent months.
Lallana remains an important figure to help Liverpool play their beautiful, free flowing football and signing him to a new long-term deal is set to be one of the best deals undertaken by the club under Jurgen Klopp.
