Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp won’t pressurise Adam Lallana to extend his contract at Anfield despite being keen to extend the midfielder’s deal, according to reports.
The England international has only started three matches in the Premier League this season, providing a goal and an assist.
There will be lots of interest in Lallana in the summer with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
The report adds that there is ‘no pressure on Lallana to commit’ to the club beyond his current contract and that Klopp ‘understands Lallana is too good to be a back-up player’.
Klopp will get the backing of Liverpool‘s board if Lallana ‘indicates he wants to stay’ with the club’s hierarchy ready to green light a one-year extension.
