Southampton are continuing to look at bringing back Adam Lallana to St Mary’s, according to reports.

The 32-year-old is surplus to requirements at Anfield with his contract about to come to an end. Therefore, he will be available on a free transfer this summer.

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg heavily linked with a move to both Tottenham and Everton, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl must look for a replacement to fill the £25m man’s boots.

According to The Express, Southampton would like to bring in Lallana to replace the departing Denmark international, having identified this season’s Premier League winner as a player that could come in and do a job.

The former Saints midfielder came through the ranks at Staplewood and was hugely successful before joining Liverpool in 2014 for £25m.

Club legend Matt Le Tissier is a huge fan of his, he previously told Sky Sports News (12:35 pm, February 22, 2020) that he is a “very, very good footballer”, but did raise concerns about his lack of game time for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

There is no hiding from the fact that Lallana has struggled with injuries, missing almost the entire 2017/18 campaign due to hamstring issues and seven games the following campaign from a groin strain, as per TransferMarkt.

With a wage packet of £110,000-a-week (according to Spotrac), the question remains if the Saints would be willing to pay someone that amount of money with his medical background.
