Liverpool to sign £25m Lallana before World Cup starts

Saints midfielder open to a move to Anfield, and Reds could also come in for defender Lovren

Adam Lallana

Midfielder Adam Lallana was a Southampton man when he was picked for the World Cup, but he could be a Liverpool player by the time he touches down in Brazil, according to the Liverpool Echo, which says negotiations over a move are progressing. No fee has been agreed between the two clubs, but the paper says Saints are willing to sell and that Lallana is "keen on a move to Anfield".

Liverpool began the bidding with an offer of £20m earlier in the month, but Southampton are holding out for £25m. And they could get their hands on even more cash if Liverpool also make an offer for defender Dejan Lovren, as the Echo suggests they might.
