Liverpool are lining up a bid for Southampton captain Adam Lallana. The Daily Star says the Anfield outfit are looking to continue their charge for a top four finish this season and reports indicate Lallana could be brought in to strengthen the teams midfield options.

The 25-year-old is adored by the St Mary's faithful after snubbing offers from Premier League clubs to stay loyal to the south coast outfit - even when they were propping up League One.

Lallana has now been identified as a winter transfer target for the Reds to help keep the pressure on top-of-the-league rivals Arsenal.
