Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers rejects transfer approach claims for Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana

Brendan Rodgers

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has rejected transfer claims that they approached Liverpool to sign Adam Lallana in the summer, as per the Daily Mirror.

The 31-year-old midfielder was brought to Merseyside when Rodgers was the Reds manager in 2014.

The former England international has made 175 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions since his move to Anfield, scoring 22 goals and creating 22 assists.

Now, however, Lallana’s set to leave the club as his contract is expiring in the summer.

The former Southampton player has been linked with several Premier League clubs with Leicester reportedly even making contact with the player’s representatives.

However, the Foxes boss has rejected these rumors, claiming they have not made an approach for the midfielder.

Rodgers said on Thursday:

“I’ve seen a lot of stuff around Adam and that we’ve approached Liverpool, which isn’t the case,”

“He’s at the stage of his contract where he will have options.”

The former Liverpool manager was gushing about the midfielder last week.

“Adam is a fantastic player and one I brought into Liverpool,” He said. “I have been aware of his talents since he was a young player at Southampton.

“He has done brilliantly [at Liverpool] and I’m sure he will be weighing up his options.

“But I don’t need to speak about that now. We’ve spoken about that all through January. I don’t need to speak about the summer transfer window.

“I would only add he is a top-class player.”
