Tottenham Hotspur “would take” Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana once, as widely expected, he leaves Anfield, according to Watford captain Troy Deeney.
According to numerous outlets including the London Evening Standard, the Reds have reportedly decided to allow the England midfielder to depart at the end of the season.
The Express, meanwhile, has reported that Spurs, Arsenal, Southampton, Leicester City and West Ham are all hoping to secure Lallana’s services on a free transfer.
Deeney is a big fan of the 31-year-old, who he deems good enough to walk into “90 percent of teams”, including the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
“Lallana they’re letting go now,” the Hornets ace is quoted by The Metro as saying. “I was just chatting about this with my mates in our group chat – Lallana walks into 90 percent of teams.
“Other than Man City, he could play for Man City but I think they’re overpopulated… you would take him at United. He’d be in the squad and 100 percent he improves the squad.
“Lallana can play anywhere across the front line. Tottenham would take him, Everton… Chelsea, yeah.”
Lallana is a high-calibre player who has unfortunately suffered from injuries over the past few years, but was a key player for Jurgen Klopp at the start of his Liverpool tenure.
He would undoubtedly bolster the Tottenham ranks with his great first touch, impressive engine, creativity and work rate.
