Paris Saint-Germain are preparing to offer Adam Lallana a £200,000-a-week contract to entice him away from Liverpool, according to a report.
The Sun claim the French champions are ready to make a January bid of £40million for the England international.
It is said that PSG will offer a £200,000-a-week deal to Lallana, which is triple his current £70,000-a-week salary with the Merseyside giants.
The report claim that a huge bid will test Liverpool’s resolve to hang on to a player who has emerged as one of the finest in England in recent months.
Lallana, who missed Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday with a groin injury, has been outstanding this season.
The 28-year-old has scored three goals and supplied five assists from 11 Premier League matches this season.
He also scored three goals in consecutive England matches before breaking down in the first half of the team’s 2-2 draw against Spain earlier this month.
Football Insider verdict:
It is unsurprising that Lallana is casting covetous eyes from Europe’s richest clubs. He has been outstanding since Klopp took over at Anfield 13 months ago, developing from a fringe player to one of the first names on the Liverpool team sheet. The 28-year-old has taken his game to a new level this season after being handed a central attacking midfield role in a 4-3-3 formation. Lallana has responded by providing the team with a new cutting edge. It is testament to his influence that when he is not in the starting XI, Liverpool do not look as effective.
