Lallana, 31, has been with the Reds since 2014 following a £20m [BBC Sport] move from Southampton. The 2016 England Player of the Year has clocked up 177 appearances for the European champions during a six-year spell registering 22 goals and the same number of assists.
According to The Liverpool Echo, the midfielder is set to depart the Reds once his contract expires in June with a lack of game time under Jurgen Klopp one of the definitive factors.
Initially signed by Brendan Rodgers, Lallana would go on to become an integral figure for the Reds in his early years at the club and was one of the standout players in Liverpool’s 2016/17 campaign that saw Liverpool earn a top-four finish for the first time in three seasons.
However, Lallana has fallen out of favour following Liverpool’s return to the pinnacle of Europe’s elite. He has started just eight matches for Liverpool this season who are currently on course to win their first league title since 1990.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Southampton, Leicester City and West Ham United are interested in signing the Englishman on a free transfer in the summer of 2020, according to The Express.
Lallana will be a player Howe will certainly know all too well following his time at Bournemouth progressing through the academy before earning a move to Southampton whom he captained from League One into the Premier League.
The Bournemouth manager knows the Champions League winner from his time at the Cherries, and he has spoken highly of the 31-year-old.
Howe told The Daily Echo about Lallana: “I always remember Adam being a very impressive technical player, very good in tight areas, had the ability to beat a man in such a small space.
“Great lad, came here with a real desire to do well. He’s gone on to have a fantastic career.
“From those early exchanges with him and moments where we worked with him, you could tell he was destined for great things, because of his mindset and how he approached the game and with his technical ability added, great player.”
What RTK has to say
Howe’s admiration for Lallana is well known and considering their past experiences it begs the question as to whether a return to his boyhood club for the Liverpool midfielder is a possibility?
Bournemouth have a good working relationship with Liverpool and have a history of looking to Anfield for additions in the transfer market.
Liverpool and the Cherries have previously negotiated moves for Reds stars such as Harry Wilson, Nathaniel Clyne, Dominic Solanke, Brad Smith and Jordan Ibe.
If Bournemouth were to stay in the Premier League it will certainly be an interesting prospect to see whether a move to Lallana’s former club potentially materialises.
