Tottenham and Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Adam Lallana transfer talk

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has been linked to Tottenham Hotspur.

Could Adam Lallana really make the switch from Liverpool to Premier League competitors Tottenham?

The Sun claim the England international is subject of strong interest from Spurs, who are claimed to be considering putting together a £20 million offer for the midfielder.

At the weekend Tottenham's midfield was exposed without the suspended Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli, and with Champions League football to play next season, it is a position they need to strengthen.

What is less certain though is whether Lallana would force his way into the first choice XI, and if he would have to dislodge Christian Eriksen in order to do so.

Lallana has been a Liverpool player for two seasons, since moving from Southampton, where he played under current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

This campaign he has netted four goals and provided six assists in the Premier League from 22 starts, plus three goals and one assist in 10 Europa League starts.

Tottenham are one of the clubs Liverpool would be hoping to overtake next season as they bid to finish at least in the top four, and selling to a rival could backfire.

Liverpool fans have had their say on the rumours on social media, with mixed response...

Tottenham supporters themselves are not convinced, unsure that Lallana would instantly improve the first team.

At 28-years-old he would be one of the more senior players in the squad, yet lacks experience of Champions League football barring fleeting appearances last season as Liverpool crashed out in the group stages.
