The Southampton exodus continues this afternoon with Adam Lallana joining Luke Shaw in leaving the Saints with the midfielder set to join Liverpool.
The money isn't ours and Liverpool don't seem inclined to stop spending so whether £25million is an over-pay or not, Liverpool are definitely better and deeper today than they were yesterday. With Champions League football on order next season and the status of Luis Suarez up in the air after his third biting incident, the news of Lallana's signing will be welcome news for Liverpool supporters. What remains to be seen once the team is fully assembled is who will be starting and how often with Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez (maybe), Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert, Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling, Lallana, Lucas, Joe Allen, and Emre Can all vying for playing time along with returning loanees Fabio Borini and Oussama Assaidi. That's a lot of bodies to accommodate even with extra Champions League matches sprinkled in.
