He has just over a 1000 minutes in the last 3 premier league seasons, due to a combination of injuries and not being good enough. He’s well past his peak imo and I’d stay clear, I’d rather we went for some young championship talent instead.

Ability wise he is good enough but he definitely Hasn’t played enough over the last few years for it to make sense. We should go for Willian from Chelsea.

Well documented that Willian doesn’t want to go anywhere but London in terms of Prem teams

Barnes and Maddison could learn a lot from him.

 

It's good to have a senior head about the places and we don't really have anyone in midfield like that.

 

He will be coming to us after winning the league with Klopp, I'm sure he will share his wisdom with some of the young lads.

 

Good squad player.

Yeah, as long as he is absolutely not relied upon as a 1st team player, if his attitude is right then his experience may balance the squad out, especially with the likes of Morgan, Fuchs, and Albrighton all likely leaving in the next year or two. Of course he'd have to take a reasonable wage.

If he comes, he’ll start for us after a few games. Probably on the right.

Imho he would be a good signing but not on the reported £100k a week. That would put him on more than Wilf, Cags, Jonny?, Riccy P, Praet...which just seems wrong for a guy who will probs be a squad player- albeit a very good one.

I'd hope that he wouldn't be the only attacking signing we make! Ideally we get another winger in and start them and Barnes, with Lallana on the bench.

The fact there is no fee involved makes the 100k more acceptable or a 2 year contract is around the 11 million mark, when you fact in a unproven Championship player cost between 10-20 million now days and then you have wages on top. 

 

Proven PL player, England International, played in Europe, not much to complain about.

Yeah, I'm not disputing that mate, you're right from that point of view. What I'm saying is, if he comes in on £100k a week then key players who don't earn that such as the players I've mentioned (Wilf, Cags, Jonny, Riccy etc.) could quite legitimately say "Why am I not on £100k a week?" ....and then we have a problem as I doubt we can afford to put them all on such contracts.

 

The guys we have on £100k plus currently are absolutely crucial players - Kasper, Vards. I'm not sure spending £100k a week on Lallana, who is likely to be a squad player and who has a patchy injury record is a good move - just my opinion. Bit different at Liverpool where there's numerous players on £100k a week, probs a few on £200k a week.

 

I'm not averse to us signing him, just don't think he should come in on immediate parity with our top earners. If we can get him in on £75k a week (for example) that seems a bit more reasonable and potentially less divisive.

I agree, he should absolutely not be on 100k a week and above those players mentioned who are regular first team players when essentially he will be a squad member. To be on 75k he would still be above Chilwell, Maddison, Caglar and Ricardo. Depends what his demands are I guess? Money can cause unrest especially wages! I know there is talk of new contracts for some of our players but if Lallana has essentially been on the bench this season he should not be demanding those wages and hopefully he will realise this too.  I dont think Fuchs will stay much longer as I should imagine it was hard to leave his family after his extended stay during lockdown, so another senior player, especially a midfielder, would be great for the young squad. He seems friendly with some already on social media and should fit in well? I have a strong feeling we will sign him up! 😁

That’d be nice but unless we lose Gray or Albrighton and retain Barnes and bring in Lallana I can’t see it...

 

But Lallana and Coutinho would be fine! 😆

You're right we don't have anyone capable of that yet :blush:

Yeah it would probably involve selling Gray instead of losing him for free next season.

Willian averages about 5 goals a season, he’s a bit of a fraud in all honesty

Not a chance Lallana signs at LCFC as a "squad player".  If he's healthy (certainly no given with him) he'd be an automatic start.

I think if he fit he will play a lot, especially we CL league football, we have a track record of taking guy with something to prove 

 

Cags, Riccy both deserve improved contacts if they are staying, not sure Wilf and Evans are rock the boat sort of characters.

Weren’t there reports when Chilwell signed his new contract it was 100k a week? Iheanacho is supposedly one of our highest earners as well.
