Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is ready to leave Anfield in search of first-team football, according to the Express.

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana could return to Southampton

Lallana has been linked with a move back to Southampton. The Liverpool midfielder has just one more year on his contract at Anfield. There is a club option on his deal, however.

The Englishman joined Liverpool in 2014 for £28 million. Injuries have blighted his time at Anfield. Lallana has missed 67 matches for Liverpool due to injury during his nearly five seasons with the club.

Southampton are keen on reuniting with Lallana, according to the Mirror. Manager Ralph Hassenhuttl turned the Saints’ fortunes around after arriving in midseason. Lallana is believed to be an ideal fit in Hassenhuttl’s attack as a creative midfielder.

Is a Liverpool exodus on the cards?

Reports indicate Liverpool could lose several players in the summer. Daniel Sturridge is set to leave with Australia a possible destination.

There is still confusion over James Milner’s contract at Liverpool. He could leave the club as could Divock Origi, who’s Liverpool deal is up in 2020.

Klopp could lose several players in the summer despite the club’s fantastic finish to the Premier League season and qualification for the Champions League Final.

Who could take Adam Lallana’s place at Anfield?

Liverpool’s Harry Wilson has been on loan at Derby County this season and received rave reviews. The attacking midfielder has scored 17 goals in 45 games. Wilson leads Derby in scoring and will play for the side in the Championship Playoff Final against Aston Villa.

Barcelona’s acquisition of Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann could force Philippe Coutinho out of Camp Nou. The Reds could be inspired to bring back the Brazilian just 18 months after he left Anfield.
