Adam Lallana eyeing trophies with Liverpool and England call-up

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana said that he wants to win trophies with Liverpool and play for England again.

Lallana feels that Liverpool have the squad to finally win trophies in the upcoming season after coming agonisingly close on more than one occasion.

They have signed four players this season in the form of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker, winger Xherdan Shaqiri, midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho.

And Lallana feels that the additions will help his side win silverware after having come close on several occasions. Liverpool have lost the the Champions League, Europa League and League Cup finals since Juergen Klopp took charge in 2015.

“I’m delighted to be at a top club like Liverpool that are going to be challenging for trophies again and I’m looking forward to playing for England again,” Lallana told British media.

“For my club, I just want to take the next step now. We’ve been in a few finals that we haven’t been victorious in and that needs to change.

“We’ve got all the ingredients there, the experience we’ve gained and the squad we’ve put together, the signs are really good for us to go the next step.”

Lallana also feels that Liverpool can challenge champions City, who won the league by 19 points last season.

“Of course, we’re going to be in the pack who want to chase down City. Hopefully, Liverpool and three or four of the other top teams can squeeze a few more points out of City this year and that would make it more interesting,” Lallana said.

Liverpool face West Ham United in their first league fixture on August 12. Before that, they will face Napoli and Torino in pre-season friendlies.
