Adam Lallana: Liverpool were understood to have bid £25m earlier in June

The Anfield club were understood to have bid £25million for Southampton’s captain before he flew out to the World Cup with England earlier in June.

There has yet to be any movement but Kop idol Barnes would like to see a deal which takes classy playmaker Lallana to Merseyside.

“Lallana would be a fantastic signing, because you know what you are going to get with him,” Barnes told Sky Sports. “He is a great player.

“I am hoping that he can come [to Liverpool] but if he does not come, good luck to him and we [Liverpool] will move on.”

Barnes, himself a tricky attacker in his playing days with Liverpool between 1987 and 1997, also does not think his former club would be paying over the odds for Lallana in the £25m offer.

“Whatever you are prepared to pay, you are worth,” he said.

“Is Gareth Bale worth £86m? Is anybody worth £86m? Yes, because if whoever is paying it decides you are worth it, then you are worth it.”

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
