According to a report from Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones, writing for Goal, the Reds would like to keep ‘influential’ midfielder Adam Lallana on board with a potential contract extension – resulting in these supporters fuming over the Englishman’s description.
The journalist, who described Lallana as influential despite the fact he has started just three Premier League games this season, has now attracted fan criticism over his description – with supporters flocking to his news that we may want to keep the England international at Anfield.
Over his limited outings this campaign, Lallana has at least managed to bag a goal and assist over 324 league minutes according to WhoScored – but the vast majority of those have come as a substitute.
Should Liverpool keep Lallana?
Yes, still has more to offer
No, get rid already
The 32-year-old, who hasn’t played for his country since March 2018 in a friendly against Italy, may well consider his options when presented with a potential contract offer – but these Reds supporters don’t appear to want him on Merseyside much longer.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
Absolute state of this. Its embarrassing.

In what way is Lallana influential? It’s high time he left the club as he’s the weakest link.

Were the European World Champions who are on the verge of winning the PL in the most dominant season ever and Adam Lallana is still considered influential 😑
