Anfield side set to welcome in St Mary’s star.
Liverpool are set to unveil Adam Lallana as their latest summer signing with a deal to be announced today according to the Daily Express.
The move is said to cost the Anfield side £25m and the England international will become the third signing made by boss Brendan Rodgers this summer with the Northern Irishman having already completed moves to bring in veteran forward Rickie Lambert and Emre Can.

26 year old attacking midfielder Lallana has already passed a medical with the Merseyside club and will offer Liverpool further creative quality in the final third and could be considered as a long term replacement for veteran skipper Steven Gerrard.
Lallana impressed a great deal at Southampton last season and after eight seasons in the first team set-up at St Mary’s he may feel the time was right for a step ‘up’ to a side that can offer him a first taste of Champions League action.
No doubt a high-profile move would also aid Lallana’s push for a more prominent role in the England national team set-up having only played a cameo role in the 2014 World Cup finals.
