Adam Lallana prepared to play anywhere for Liverpool next season

England international Adam Lallana has said that he is prepared to play anywhere for Liverpool after suffering a couple of injury-plagued seasons with the team. The former Southampton graduate was once regarded as one of the standout performers in the squad but his requirement has dropped in the past few seasons where he has struggled with fitness concerns.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Lallana said that he is pleased to be playing regularly during pre-season and looking forward to adapting to a deeper midfield role where he started in the recent 3-1 friendly win over Lyon, he told: “It’s nice. I found myself playing there a few times this pre-season and I’m happy to play anywhere. I’ve enjoyed it, obviously getting on the ball.

The Brazil international picked up a calf problem during the season opener against Norwich City at Anfield and he was thereafter replaced by Adrian, who was the club’s only senior signing during the summer transfer window.

Since then, there have been plenty of reports indicating that the shot-stopper could be out of action for around six weeks, but Klopp believes the keeper could return to action much earlier than speculated, he said: “[It’s] Not too cool. It’s a calf injury which takes him obviously out for a while. I don’t want to make now [an] exact prognosis on when he will be back but it will not be Wednesday for sure, so now then we have to see. It takes a while, it takes a couple weeks for sure, and we have to see. I saw already like ‘six weeks’ and stuff like this, but Ali was not a lot injured in his career so I would like to wait a little bit to see how he develops in that process now, but he is not in for the next few weeks.”

Jurgen Klopp updates on club’s transfer plans for the summer

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that the club may not make much movement during the summer transfer window. The Reds ended the previous season on a high with Champions League success and it appears that Klopp is content with the current setup of the squad without the need for additions.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said that the club can consider Rhian Brewster and Oxlade-Chamberlain as new signings for the summer, given they were injured for most of the previous season. He added that the fans should not expect a big transfer window following the £170m spent on new arrivals 12 months ago.
