Adam Lallana is open to a Liverpool exit and would like to return to Southampton, according to The Express.
Injuries have held Lallana back in the last few years and this season has been frustrating. Even when he has been fit, Lallana has not got enough minutes on the pitch.
The creative midfield playmaker has only played 16 games this season. That includes just five Premier League starts and he is without a goal to his name in 2018/19.
For the sake of his own career, the 31-year-old knows that an Anfield exit would probably be for the best. And he wants to head back to Southampton.
Lallana came through the ranks with the Saints after joining their academy in 2000. After making his debut in the 2006/07 season, Lallana scored 60 goals in 265 games for Southampton.
In 2014, the 34-cap England international moved to Liverpool. He has enjoyed some success in Merseyside, racking up a tally of 21 goals in over 150 appearances.
But the Reds have a number of impressive midfielders who are keeping Lallana on the bench. This is why he feels he needs to leave.
Southampton are readying a bid to bring Lallana back to the south coast. It could cost Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men around £13m.
