With his contract ending next summer, should Liverpool sell Adam Lallana?
When Lallana first joined Liverpool, he was an integral part of the squad.
The Englishman proved that he was born to wear the Red shirt when his creative prowess and skills fit the criteria we were looking for. Scoring 12 goals and accruing fourteen assists for Southampton, there was no doubt that he would be an asset to Liverpool’s attack.
The faith Rodgers’ placed in his talent paid off in the long run when Lallana helped the team reach fourth place in the 16/17, contributing 8 goals and seven assists (Premier League stats). However, the 31 year-old’s game time has since been halved. Lallana now plays in 12-13 games a season, often starting as a substitute for the Reds. He didn’t even make the team in the last six games of the 18/19 campaign.
Should Liverpool sell Lallana?
If Liverpool have no intention of renewing his contract, I think that they should sell the attacking midfielder in 2020. Despite some of the injuries he has suffered the past two years, Lallana is still in pretty good form and would be a huge mistake to let him go on a free. We could easily earn £15m and use it in the next transfer window.
Who could replace him?
Harry Wilson should be in the Liverpool first team next year. The 22 year-old impressed fans when his loan move to Derby saw the attacking midfielder score 15 goals. Wilson pleased Liverpool even further this year when he scored a belter of a free-kick against Man City too.
If he continues to smash in goals from outside the six-yard box, our front three could become a golden four.
