With Saints team-mate Rickie Lambert expected on Merseyside for a medical ahead of a £4million move back to his boyhood club it is understood that manager Brendan Rodgers has made another push for midfielder Lallana.

The Reds had an initial bid of £20million rejected but have gone back to Southampton with an increased amount.

However, as with Lambert, the Merseysiders are not prepared to hang around in their pursuit of targets and the offer is effectively amounts to take-it-or-leave-it.

Lallana is believed to be keen on a move to Anfield so it leaves Saints in a tricky position as if they reject Liverpool's advances once again they risk alienating a player who has been loyal servant to the club.

He could do so much better by joining a big club. Nice beard.
