Why Rangers should sign Adam Lallana this month or in the summer
According to a report in the Scottish Sun, Rangers are the favourites to sign Liverpool and England midfielder Adam Lallana. The former Southampton star has played only 300 minutes of football this season, as Jurgen Klopp eases him back after a long-term injury.
However, the 30-year-old keeps getting small injuries, maybe partly due to the fact that he has to compete with a bunch of talented midfielders to start games on a regular basis.
This forces the player to push that one extra bit to impress the manager but after coming back from a long-term injury, the last thing you want to do as a player is to push the body to the limits.
Hence, it would be ideal for him to leave Anfield and go elsewhere. Playing under Steven Gerrard at the Ibrox won’t be a bad idea. The duo already know about each other as they’ve played together for Liverpool before.
Here’s why Rangers should sign Lallana either this month or in the upcoming summer window:
Lallana’s qualities and experience would be vital
Firstly, the best thing for the Gers would be to sign the player this month as they aim to challenge Celtic for the Scottish league title. The experience and the talent that Lallana possesses might be helpful in situations when the team needs a difference-maker.
Legend Barry Ferguson has said that if his former team do manage to sign the 30-year-old, then they have a much better chance of winning the title.
The best thing about Lallana is that he is a manager’s delight. He can operate as one of the attackers in the forward line or can play as a wide midfielder on either flank. The ex-Saint gives his 100% whenever called upon to wear the shirt and represent his team.
Gerrard likes to tweak his system to rattle the opposition. In Lallana, he will have his former mate who he knows well, and the versatility of the player would help the gaffer to find a place for Lallana in the starting line-up regardless of which formation the former chooses to play.
All in all, it would be a beneficial deal for the Gers in every aspect. Hence, they must make sure that the 30-year-old arrives at the Ibrox by the end of this month. If that gets out of hand, they should get him in the summer.
