PSG set to target Liverpool midfielder with £40m bid – report

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Adam Lallana in a £40m deal, according to reports in the English media

Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a £40m bid for Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun are reporting that the Ligue 1 giants are keen to sign the England international after his impressive start to the 2016-17 season.

The same article states that PSG would be willing to part with a staggering £40m for the former Southampton captain in the January transfer window.

The story goes on to claim that the Ligue 1 holders will look to tempt Lallana to the French capital with a £200,000-a-week contract offer.

The 28-year-old has scored three goals and has made five assists in 10 Premier League appearances in the 2016-17 season so far.

Lallana has come into his own since the appointment of former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp as the new Liverpool manager.

The attacking midfielder was signed in a £25m deal from Southampton under Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers in 2014.
