According to a report from high level insiders Claret and Hugh, West Ham are in fact interested in signing Liverpool ace Adam Lallana on a free transfer this summer.

The Mirror claimed last week that the Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to bring the 32-year-old Reds ace to the London Stadium at the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp will be powerless to prevent Lallana from leaving Anfield, with the 34-capped England international’s contract set to expire when this season is finished.
The former Southampton man has been a very good player during his time in the Premier League.
But at 32, he is clearly past his best. The Englishman has really struggled with injuries in recent years. And he would command a massive salary.
Lallana currently earns £110,000 per week according to Spotrac.
The last thing West Ham need is another ageing, injury-prone star rocking up at the London Stadium on big wages.
And Hammers fans will surely echo that sentiment.
Lallana has made 15 Premier League appearances for the Reds this season, racking up one goal and one assist. In 196 career Premier League appearances, the 31-year-old has scored 30 goals and registered 28 assists (premierleague.com).
In 15 league outings this season, the Liverpool man has averaged 0.2 shots, 0.3 key passes and 0.2 dribbles per game. Those numbers are far from impressive, but in fairness to him, in those 15 games, he has only played a total of 374 minutes (Who Scored).
This really should be one that West Ham avoid. As mentioned earlier, Lallana was great in his day. But that day has gone.
And the Hammers should be targeting younger and hungrier players throughout the course of the next few transfer windows.
