It is official. As the English press had announced a few days ago, Brighton announced today, one day after finishing the Premier League; the signing of Adam Lallana for three seasons. At 32, the English striker joins the team led by Graham Potter after ending his contract with Liverpool. Everton, Leicester, and Burnley also intended to incorporate the international who has played in 34 games.
“Adam is truly an exciting signing for us; someone our fans will be eager to see the play when things return to normal,” Potter said. “He has experience and qualities, it is seen in his CV, it will be a very good reinforcement for us and will serve as a role model for our young players.”
Titles at Liverpool
Lallana came to Liverpool in 2014 from Southampton and has won the Champions League, European Super Cup, and Club World Cup in 2019 and says goodbye to the Premier League, the first ‘red’ league in 30 years.
This season Lallana has participated in 22 games in the computation of all competitions; but has not been a starter since the resumption of the Premier after the halt due to the coronavirus. In total, he has worn the ‘red’ shirt in the league championship on 196 occasions with a balance of 30 goals and 28 assists. Lallana is the second player to leave Liverpool after Croatian defender Dejan Lovren signed for Russian Zenit earlier today.
Adam Lallana passed a medical; and penned a 3-year contract on Monday to complete a switch back to the south coast. Graham Potter comments about Adam Lallana: Adam is a really exciting signing for us. Having both his experience and quality out on the pitch will be a great addition for us. He will be wearing a No 14 shirt.
