Newcastle keen on Liverpool midfielder

We’re officially into a new decade and while for many the start of a new year means a fresh start and new opportunities, for us football fans it means one thing – transfers. It doesn’t take much to get the rumour mill moving during January and that appears to be the case with a reported link between Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana and Newcastle United.

It was reported by The Telegraph recently that Newcastle could be weighing up a move for the former English international, whose contract expires in the summer, with the hope of getting him at a slightly cut price. It would be a big move for Steve Bruce if he were able to bring in a player with Lallana’s background, his experience at the top of English football could be crucial in the continued development of players like Jonjo Shelvey and Jamal Lascelles.

Newcastle target experience

A key issue for the Magpies however should be Lallana’s storied struggle with injuries, the midfielder has failed to make over 30 appearances in all competitions in either of the past two seasons and while he has been fit more regularly so far this season, it would still be a slight surprise to break that barrier. For a player who would likely come in as one of the top earners at the club, it’s likely that Newcastle would want slightly more game time and production from Lallana than what he is currently contributing at Liverpool.

The biggest stumbling block with the deal however is the prospect that Lallana may be waiting until the end of the season to decide where he wishes to play football next year. It’s not overly surprising considering he’s currently part of a Liverpool team who look to be cruising towards a Premier League title, not many players would want to move away from that situation just for a few months of game time.

Either way I’m sure this story will continue to rumble on over the coming weeks, we’ll make sure to keep you up to date with all of the latest twists and turns.
