‘Lallana should stay at Southampton’

Southampton technical director Les Reed believes England midfielder Adam Lallana should snub interest from Liverpool and remain on the south coast, ESPN has reported.

Lallana has been the subject of interest from the Premier League runners-up with speculation of a move to Anfield. It’s said that the transfer has broken down because the Saints want £30m for their captain, having already sold Rickie Lambert to the Reds.

“Lallana's been here long enough, we've brought him to this level and we feel that perhaps he should give it a little bit longer,” Reed said. “Anybody seriously considering coming for our players is going to have to think very significantly about the size of the fee.

“If we do take money it will be because it's the right amount and it enables us to improve the team and move forward,” he added. “We know all about the rumours. The club and I will do everything to keep the best players, but finally that is the decision of the club.

“We need to continue what [Mauricio Pochettino] did, maybe to reach some more, to win prizes. Maybe one day to play in the European Cup, I think those have to be the next steps for Southampton. We will do that with everybody. That is important.”

Ronald Koeman was this week announced as successor to Pochettino, who resigned to replace Tim Sherwood at Tottenham Hotspur.

It’s also been rumoured that Dejan Loven and Luke Shaw will look to leave the club this summer, with Manchester United said to be keen on signing the England left-back.
