Adam Lallana is set to leave Liverpool when his contract expires at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, according to the Daily Mail.
A clutch of clubs are interested in securing his services. Leicester City, Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham are all keen on the 31-year-old.
The versatile performer has adopted a more central midfield role recently but has found game time hard to come by.
Lallana has started seven games this season in all competitions, falling down Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order.
His only goal of the current campaign came in the only Premier League game where Liverpool have dropped points.
He equalised during a 1-1 draw against Manchester United back in October.
Liverpool paid £25 million to sign Lallana back in 2014 and he is currently paid £150,000-a-week by the club (Daily Mail).
Lallana signed for Brendan Rodgers and that might give Leicester the edge when it comes to landing him.
Both North London-based clubs could prove attractive also, however.
Tottenham are managed by Jose Mourinho and have a brand new stadium, whilst Arsenal might be viewed as a project for Lallana.
Game time would probably be more forthcoming at the Gunners, although European competition might not be on the agenda next season.
Mikel Arteta has already suggested that ball-playing midfielders will be on his shopping list for the summer.
Lallana would fit that type of midfield role and the Gunners might be his preferred destination.

Times change in football. Gone are the days where Liverpool settle for second best.
Klopp has transformed Liverpool and he has a team capable of dominating for years to come.
It’s fair to say that Lallana’s best days are now behind him. At 31, he can still do a job in the Premier League, but probably not at Liverpool.
He needs to play and with the emergence of Curtis Jones and Pedro Chirivella, his chances next season look even slimmer.
Where he ends up will remain to be seen.
Some attractive clubs look to be interested. Lallana should head to the club where he feels he will play the most football.
