Liverpool's Adam Lallana says he's working on this area of his game

The Liverpool midfielder says he wants to contribute more goals to the team.

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has again stressed his desire to improve his performances next season following an injury-hit debut campaign at Anfield, and seems to be trying to right his wrongs by working on one specific area of his game.

He told the club's official website: "I'm working on my finishing and am always looking forward to improving my game.

"At the start of the season I wanted to get into double figures, which I haven't managed to do, but I'll be looking to improve that next season."

Lallana has shown flashes of quality this season but has never really reached a consistent level. His technical ability has caught the eye and he has contributed six goals in all competitions – but that tally is well short of the double figures target he set himself for this season.

There have been a couple of encouraging displays, one that stands out was his performance in a 4-1 win over Swansea City earlier on in the season when he got two of the Reds’ goals.

After signing for around £25 million (per the BBC) from Southampton last summer, Lallana knows that a lot is expected of him and he will have to deliver more on a regular basis next season, and with the Reds struggling in front of goal this season, he along with others will need to contribute more on that front.
