Glenn Hoddle has claimed that Liverpool attacker Adam Lallana will be an amazing player if he adds goals to his game.
Lallana moved to Anfield from Southampton in a £25million move in the summer of 2014.
During his two-year stay at the club he has demonstrated his technical qualities but scored just 15 goals in 95 appearances for the Premier League giants.
Two of those goals have came in the new campaign with the England international scoring outstanding strikes in the opening-day 4-3 win over Arsenal and then in the 4-1 triumph against Leicester on Saturday.
Former England boss and BT Sport pundit Hoddle watched Lallana deliver a man-of-the-match display against Leicester and believes that Lallana will be a top-drawer performer if he adds goals to his all-round play.
“He’s scored for England, and he’s now scored for Liverpool,” said Hoddle to BT Sport, as quoted by Yahoo Sport.
“If he can add goalscoring to all of his creative play and all of the good things he does, he’s going to be a hell of a player.”
Lallana, 28, bagged his first England goal against Slovakia in the recent World Cup qualifier and he appears to be in a rich vein of form in front of goal.
The Liverpool attacker played a key role in helping Southampton up from League One to an established Premier League side.
His best scoring season for the Saints came in the 2009-10 season where he bagged 20 goals in 56 appearances in all competitions.
Remarkably, he became the first midfielder on the south coast to hit 20 goals in a single season since Southampton legend Matthew Le Tissier.
However, he has struggled to hit the same heights as that season with just 50 goals following before the new campaign.
In other Liverpool team news, fans are desperate for Danny Ings to return to the senior side after his goal for the Under-23’s.
