Danny Mills has claimed Adam Lallana is likely to quit Liverpool this summer in search of regular first-team football.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England defender explained the “very gifted” attacking midfielder is set to be headed for pastures new after being reduced to the Anfield fringes.
Mills is convinced Lallana, 31, will be a player in demand if he makes up his mind to leave and claimed it would be the player’s decision to do so as Liverpool would prefer to hang on to him.
The England international has made just six starts among his 16 Liverpool appearances this season after an injury-ravaged 2017-18 campaign.
“You almost forget about him but he is very gifted and a talented footballer,” Mills told Football Insider. “I would almost say he more fits the Man City style, he’d be perfect for them with his short, darting runs and clever runs in behind.
“As you start to get older, you realise you are not invincible and your career is not going to go on forever. Liverpool will definitely want to keep him but it might come down to him wanting to reignite his career.
“If that’s the case, he’s going to go. He’s such a good player he won’t be short of interested clubs.”
Lallana joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014 for a fee of around £25million.
He’s made 156 appearances for the Merseysiders, scoring 21 goals and supplying 20 assists after previously being the skipper of the Saints.
