The Hammers, the Gunners and the Toffees are all seemingly in the market for more creativity and guile in the final third this summer.

And David Moyes, Mikel Arteta and Carlo Ancelotti are all allegedly keen admirers of Lallana.

If the 32-year-old fails to sign a new contract with Liverpool, he will be free to leave Anfield for nothing at the end of the season. And Jurgen Klopp will be powerless to prevent him from doing so.

The Daily Star reckon that their is a clamour for Lallana’s signature, with West Ham, Arsenal, Everton, Crystal Palace and Leicester all keen on the silky play-maker.

So would the £110,000 per week ace be a decent signing?

That salary (Spotrac) is a big problem. He might just have to accept a pay-cut if any of the clubs mentioned are to be successful in acquiring his signature this summer.

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 (

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).

The Liverpool ace has proven throughout his time in the game that he is an elite player. He does have 34 international caps for England to his name after all.

And his availability on a free transfer will undoubtedly appeal to West Ham, Arsenal and Everton.

Let us not forget, however, he has experienced horrendous injury problems in the past. And that might just mean that some of his potential suitors approach signing him with caution.

The 32-year-old will seemingly have a choice of where he wants to play next season.

So much will depend on how ambitious he is as a footballer and how much he wants to be playing week-in, week-out.
