Leicester City determined to sign £110,000-a-week Liverpool attacker

Leicester City have offered a long-term deal to exit-bound the Reds attacker Adam Lallana. England international is available on a free transfer from the end of June and may even leave days after the Premier League is due to resume. Foxes head the queue of clubs trying to add Adam when the next transfer window opens.

They have offered him a lucrative long-term contract as Brendan Rodgers looks to reunite with Lallana he took to Liverpool in 2014. Ex-Leicester manager Kevin Phillips said earlier this week that he’s convinced the 32-year-old playmaker will snub other clubs to sign for Leicester City.

Top clubs in Italy and Spain, as well as Premier League big guns Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham United and Burnley, are also keen on the English playmaker. But Foxes are in pole position as things stand amid doubts over whether he will stay at Anfield beyond the 30 June expiry of his deal.

There is a seven-day window beginning on 23 June for Premier League clubs to extend deals for out-of-deal players. But Jurgen Klopp’s side may have secured the league title before the end of next month and may not be keen to extend the deal of a departing footballer amid football’s straitened finances.

The German tactician spoke gushingly of Adam a year ago as he worked his way back to full fitness. Lallana has stayed fit in this campaign but has played only three Premier League starts among his 22 games in all tournaments. Adam has played 178 games in six campaigns for the Merseyside giants, scoring 22 times and providing 22 assists.
