Lallana touted with Fenerbahce switch

Lallana touted with Fenerbahce switch Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is a surprise target for Turkish side Fenerbahce according to Fotomac, via Caught Offside. Fenerbahce, who are currently enduring a difficult season in the Turkish Süper Lig, sitting second from bottom with just three victories from their 17 league games, are reportedly after a loan move for Lallana who has seen limited game time at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp. The England international is said to be considering his options following the interest from Turkey, though the move could depend on whether Fenerbahce can terminate the loan deal of Yassine Benzia. Benzia joined the Turkish side on loan from French side Lille, with an option to buy at the end of the season, however Fenerbahce are hoping the loan deal is terminated in order for them to step up their pursuit of Lallana. Liverpool have an embarrassment of riches in the midfield department this season following the signing’s of Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho and Naby Keita last summer, and Lallana has rarely featured when fit this season. Klopp’s side are still challenging for the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, however, meaning the former Southampton man could still have a role to play at Anfield during the second-half of the season.

Adam Lallana has travelled to Spain with Liverpool 's squad as they gear up to face Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, much to the delight of manager Jurgen Klopp . Given Klopp 's comments, a starting spot for Lallana would seem unlikely, but his return is a timely boost for the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Adam Lallana still remains a key player in his Liverpool squad.

The England international has endured a miserable 18 months on Merseyside after suffering a string of injuries that have severely limited his game time.

Lallana made a few appearances for the Reds over the Christmas period and was expected to line up against Wolves in the FA Cup earlier this week, however the former Southampton man pulled up in training, which has now ruled him out for this Saturday’s game against Brighton.

Lallana won't be loaned out this month

Lallana won't be loaned out this month Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana will not be loaned out in this January transfer window, according to Sky Sports News. Reports had emerged earlier today linking the England international with a move to Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahçe, with Jurgen Klopp said to be keen on getting more minutes under Lallana’s belt. However, Sky Sports News have shot down these claims, saying their sources have told them that Lallana will be staying put. Klopp is apparently keen on reintegrating Lallana back into his squad, now that the former Southampton man has seemingly recovered from the latest in a series of injuries that have limited his game time in recent months. The 30-year old midfielder made two substitute appearances for the Reds over the Christmas period, and Klopp is keen to see him continue to feature for his first-team, who still sit top of the Premier League table.

Lallana’s struggles to play for the Reds has inevitably led to speculation suggesting the 30-year old could be on the move this month, however Klopp insists Lallana is still very much an important squad player.

Talking ahead of this weekend’s game, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Klopp explained how Lallana has been able to keep bouncing back from disappointment, saying:

“We are in close contact and it’s just a shame for Adam.”

“It’s not serious, he’ll probably be available for next week. It was only a little thing but it was enough to put him out of the Wolves game.”

“Of course it’s not nice, who would like that after the season he’s had? But you can’t change things that happened a day ago or an hour ago.”

Klopp confirms Moreno will start against Wolves

Klopp confirms Moreno will start against Wolves Alberto Moreno will be in the Liverpool starting line-up that faces Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed. The Reds boss spoke to the media ahead of his side’s FA Cup third round clash and delivered assurances that the Spanish defender will be handed a rare opportunity to shine. As quoted by Metro, Klopp hailed the left-back as an ‘unbelievable professional’. When asked if Moreno would start against Wolves, he said: “Alberto is another example for being an unbelievable professional person and a really important part of the dressing room. He is from the positive side of the planet I would say.” “I can say Alberto will play as well, there is no doubt about that. He has to play, that’s clear.” The 26-year-old will see his current contract at Anfield expire when the season draws to a close, with no further extension appearing to be on the table. This indicates that the former Sevilla star could move on for free in the summer as he continues to struggle for game-time on a regular basis under Klopp on Merseyside. Nevertheless, it seems Moreno is still held in high esteem by his manager as he prepares to depend on him to help the team advance through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

It’s important for this club

“You have to deal with it and he’s dealing well with it, he won’t lose confidence. He’s been confident in all the sessions and has helped us a lot. He is a very mature person, it’s all good.”

“It’s unlucky and a real shame that it happened. We were all like ‘oh no, please don’t do that’. It’s always bad when you lose a player but especially at this moment. Nobody likes it but you have to deal with it.”

However Klopp continued by explaining how Lallana still knows he has a place in his squad, saying:

“I am still completely positive. Would I like to have him available? Yes, 100%.”

“It’s brilliant to have him around as he can cool games down, he can be creative between the lines, he still has speed and all these things.”

“It’s not cool to lose him in a session, we didn’t have many training injuries this season. He stretched to get the ball and it happened. Nothing else to say about it.”

“Could he be in a better place mentally? Yes, if he was playing and had scored 20 goals in the last 10 games. But everything is fine. Adam knows that we need him.”
