Liverpool star Adam Lallana responds to reports of Pochettino's £20m reunion attempt

Adam Lallana

Liverpool star Adam Lallana has been linked with a move to Tottenham.

Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana has told The Guardian that he won't be reuniting with his former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham this summer.

Lallana, 28, has enjoyed a decent second season at Anfield, hitting seven goals and seven assists whilst taking up a prominent role in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side.

Now set for Euro 2016 with England, Lallana has one more big game to play before heading to France, as he will be lining up for Liverpool in the Europa League final against Sevilla on Wednesday evening.

The next door neighbour of manager Klopp, Lallana looks set to have a key role at Liverpool next season - if he's still there, of course.

Recent reports from The Sun suggested that Lallana was being lined up for a £20m summer move to join Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who are managed by Lallana's former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Lallana hit ten goals in his one full season under Pochettino's tutelage, and with Spurs needing some more creativity in the final third, it was claimed that the Argentinian wanted to reunite with Lallana in a huge deal.

Ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final, Lallana was asked about that situation by The Guardian - and he responded by saying that a move way from Liverpool isn't for him right now.

He added that whilst he does have a good relationship with Pochettino, he is playing some of his best football for a massive club and is therefore not interested in a move to White Hart Lane this summer.

"No, not for me," said Lallana. "I’ve got three years left on my contract and I’m really enjoying my football under this manager and getting to two cup finals. I have always had a good relationship with Pochettino. We are very good friends off the pitch but I am at a massive club, playing some of my best football and getting to cup finals. It would be very difficult. I’m sure he knows that," he added.
