Lallana set to sign new deal

    Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is set to put pen to paper on a new contract with the club.

    The Sunday Express are reporting that the England international has agreed terms on a deal worth £120,000 a week that will run to 2021.

    Lallana has been linked with moves to Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur in recent times, but it appears that he has decided to commit his future to Anfield.

    The news comes days after Philippe Coutinho and Joe Gomez both signed contract extensions with the club as Jurgen Klopp looks to secure players for the future.

    This contract will see Lallana move alongside fellow England internationals James Milner and Daniel Sturridge in the pay stakes, but behind the figure Coutinho is being paid thanks to his deal.

    Lallana had just two seasons left on his previous contract, but has been offered the extension and pay rise thanks to his upturn in performance level since the arrival of Klopp in October 2015.

    The German manager has moved the former Southampton man into a deeper midfield role this season and it has paid dividends with Lallana scoring and assisting plenty more goals than in his previous advanced position.
