It appears that Leicester City have made their first transfer move ahead of next season, with Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana offered a deal.

Don’t worry, it won’t be long now until all these Leicester City transfer rumours materialize into tangible stories or, absolutely nothing whatever but proven conjecture. There are also the reports on Foxes stars being sought after by some major clubs; hopefully that only amounts to hearsay, too. June 10 is when the transfer market’s summer window opens.

Leicester City offer Lallana a deal

At present Leicester haven’t made any actual manoeuvres that Foxes of Leicester know about. However, it was reported a while back that Brendan Rodgers’ outfit were set to make their first signing FC Koln’s Ismail Jakobs. That switch could still be announced at some point, an agreement already having been made is a possibility.

In this week’s gossip is a story carried by Daily Mail stating that the Foxes have offered Adam Lallana a ‘long-term contract’. It is though that Rodgers wants to reunite with the player he managed at Liverpool; while the feeling is apparently mutual for the current Reds midfielder.

If I may offer my honest opinion, there is only one permutation which can occur that would make signing the former England player in question logical: James Maddison is sold, as well as no suitable replacement for the Fox being purchased. In that scenario Lallana can influence Premier League and Champions League proceedings fully – if fit and still showing enough talent.

At age-32, it may be difficult or asking too much for Lallana to replicate his great performances from the past. His wages might also be too high to be a substitute at Leicester, unless their wage structure alters. It certainly appears as though the East Midlanders have a solid interest. Yet Xherdan Shaqiri is a seemingly better, though more expensive alternative.
