Adam Lallana explains why he wants to emulate 'fantastic' Arsenal star Santi Cazorla

Santi Cazorla

Liverpool ace Adam Lallana wants to replicate Santi Cazorla's ability with both feet.

With four goals and two assists to his name this season, Adam Lallana's first campaign as a Liverpool player has been decent, without being too spectacular.

The former Southampton star joined the Reds this summer in a deal believed to be worth around £25m, having impressed with the Saints last term.

The England international has had some injury problems this season, but has shown glimpses of his quality - especially in Liverpool's 4-1 win over Swansea in December, where Lallana scored twice.

Now raring to go ahead of the second half of the campaign, Lallana will be hoping to fire Liverpool into the top four for a Champions League place.

Speaking with the Liverpool official website, Lallana not only admitted that he wants to score ten goals this season, but also revealed how he wants to emulate Arsenal star Santi Cazorla, given how the Spaniard is able to use both feet with such proficiency.

"I've always worked on both feet and now, at 26, I feel comfortable on either foot wherever it comes. It's got to the point where I don't really think about which foot it comes to," said Lallana.

"It's probably just with games and experience that I kind of forget about it. It's a nice attribute to have, I look forward to keeping improving and becoming better on my left side."

"I look at Cazorla - he even hits corners in with his weaker foot, that's quite remarkable. I've always watched Cazorla and I think he's a fantastic player," he added.

Cazorla is having a sensational season, and his ability to be a factor in the final third when using both feet is one of the reasons why the 30-year-old is impressing so much for the Gunners this season.

If Lallana can replicate that ability, he will become a much more dangerous player for Liverpool. The ability to go both ways would make him so much more difficult to defend, with opposing players unable to show him on to a weaker foot.
