Leicester City leading Adam Lallana chase

Leicester City are leading the race for out-of-favour Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, according to Chris Bascombe of The Telegraph.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and West Ham United are also among those monitoring his situation at Anfield; however, his previous relationship with Brendan Rodgers hands the Foxes a massive advantage.

For those of you who have forgotten, it is Rodgers who brought Lallana to Liverpool in 2014 from Southampton. There is every chance he could bring him to the King Power Stadium now.

And he could do that for free. The former Saints midfielder is yet to sign a new contract with the Reds and if it stays the same, a Bosman deal is what we would be looking at.

For now, though, all of this is only speculation. Leicester are yet to make any contact with the European champions, so it is possible that they wait until the summer to make their move.

Given that UEFA Champions League qualification could be a decisive factor, Leicester would have another advantage over Arsenal, Spurs and West Ham, seeing as none of those three look like securing a top four finish whereas Leicester do.

All things considered, Lallana would be a decent addition to this squad. Rodgers knows him from their time before, so you would think he also knows how to bring the best out of him.

If it works, it is a nail hit right on the head, if it does not, he would have most likely been signed for free anyway. Win-win.
