Southampton captain Adam Lallana is expected to move to Liverpool this week. The Mail on Sunday says Lallana will celebrate his call-up into Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad by sealing a £20million move to Liverpool this week.

It is a massive boost for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, whose side have an outside chance of winning their first title since 1990 when the Premier League season reaches its climax on Sunday.

Southampton believe the fee represents fair value for a player who progressed through their respected youth academy.

All sides see sense in wrapping up the move before the England players report for manager Hodgson's pre-World Cup training camp in Portugal on May 19.
