Karleigh Osborne gave his views on Adam Lallana’s future to Love Sport Breakfast and revealed where he thinks the Liverpool midfielder will want to go.

Adam Lallana’s time at Anfield is reportedly nearing it’s end as Leicester, Arsenal and Tottenham are all allegedly interested in securing the midfielder’s signature.

After helping his side win the Champions League last season, Lallana looks on course to be a part of the first title winning Liverpool team in three decades. Klopp’s men find themselves 22 points clear at the top of the table and could have the league wrapped up in the next six games should they win them all.


Signed from Southampton in 2014, Lallana has spent six years in the red half of Merseyside. Though his time at Liverpool has been blighted with injuries, he has still made 175 appearances and notched 22 goals in all competitions.

Speaking to Love Sport Breakfast, Karleigh Osborne revealed where he thinks Lallana will see his future.

“I think it’s a good move for him. He wins the Premier League, then goes to join up with Brendan Rogers again. He’d be a good addition to Leicester, I would imagine he’d play a lot more at Leicester.”

“I think now he’s more of a central midfielder, his time at Liverpool, working under Klopp, he would bring a lot of experience.”

“I think Leicester are more attractive than Arsenal and Tottenham because he has already worked with Brendan Rogers, they are a good team to play for. I think next year they will be even stronger.”

Osborne did reveal he thinks playing Lallana means you have to play certain players around him to utilise his ability; “I personally think you need someone with energy and mobility around Adam Lallana to get the best out of him and make it beneficial.
