According to reports in the Sunday Mirror, Adam Lallana is wanted by PSG. The out of favour Liverpool midfielder is out of contract in the summer and has only made one Premier League start this season.
The England international has had a tough time of it in recent years. He has struggled for regular game time due to a series of injuries. When he has played he has often impressed, this season saw Lallana score a late equaliser against Manchester United.
With the Liverpool midfield as competitive as ever, it is difficult to envisage the ex-Southampton man forcing his way back into the side on a regular basis.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned from injury and looks like a new signing. The Ox’s goalscoring form isn’t good news for the PSG target’s chances. When you also consider the strong displays that we have seen from Naby Keita, the future doesn’t look promising for Lallana.
Twitter has reacted to the bizarre rumours of an Adam Lallana move to PSG.
One Kopite insisted, with a good dose of irony, that we should demand £100m for the midfielder.
Nothing less than £100M.

Another fan was confused, comparing the potential move to a transfer you would see on FIFA’s career mode.

One fan even joked that if we were to give Adam Lallana to PSG, they’d have to give us some cash alongside Mbappe.

Another supporter has suggested he’s being recruited to work in retail.
To work in the club shop?

Whilst one fan urged the player to take the move if he’s offered it.
Look, if you are Lallana you TAKE THAT PSG MOVE. Do not even hesitate or consider. Make the move. PSG want you, whereas at Liverpool you’ll always be bit-part player. And playing abroad is something ALL players should strive to do.
