Liverpool’s signing of Adam Lallana is finally confirmed after months of speculation, with the England international joining the Reds for £25 million. Given the array of attacking talent already available to Brendan Rodgers’s side, with the likes of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling likely to be difficult to displace, who will truly benefit from the capture of the midfielder?
Lallana was an integral part of Mauricio Pochettino’s Southampton side that so impressed last year. Able to operate both in midfield and on the flanks, the versatile 26-year-old has been a long-term target for Liverpool as they gear up for the challenge of Champions League football.
Liverpool were the Premier League’s top attacking side last season, but defensive frailties ultimately let them down as they finished just behind Manchester City. The addition of top quality talent like Lallana can only bode well for their efforts next season, as they aim to go a step further and capture the Premier League title itself.
The slideshow shows three players who will benefit specifically from the signing. Featuring why Raheem Sterling could be the man who needs Lallana the most.
