Two Claims – Liverpool Set to Agree £31.2m Deal vs They Have Agreed £25m Deal

According to recent reports, Liverpool star Adam Lallana has been heavily linked to sign a new deal with the Anfield club.
As of now, the Reds have not made any official announcement on the subject. However, as per reports in the British media, we have two claims and it can’t really be confirmed which one is authentic. Nevertheless, we can debate about it.
On 29th January, Express claimed in an exclusive report that the 28-year-old England international has agreed a new four year deal worth £120,000-a-week, £25million.
Later that day, The Sun came up with a report and stated that the former Southampton star is set to agree a fresh contract that will make him earn £150,000-a-week, £31.2million until 2021.
On 29th January, Metro and Daily Star covered the story reported by the Express. On the other hand, Mirror (yesterday) and Telegraph (today) covered the story reported by the Sun.
Lallana has been in the form of his life for the Merseysiders this season. Moreover, yesterday, he was named England Player of the Year for 2016. Overall, Adam has played 24 games for Liverpool in the current campaign and scored 7 goals.
The likes of Milner and Sturridge currently (Star) earn £120,000-a-week for the Reds. Not to forget, Coutinho recently became the highest earner at the club after signing a new deal worth £150,000-a-week (Mirror).
For Liverpool, Lallana might be as important as Coutinho but the English star is definitely not a better playmaker than the Brazilian. Moreover, Philippe has been consistent for the Reds since joining the club from Inter Milan four years ago and Adam has only shown consistency this season.
Therefore, Coutinho surely deserves to be the best paid player and £120,000-a-week should be a fair salary for Lallana.

    Handing skips-full of money to players we’ve already got might keep them from the clutches of other clubs but it sure as Hell doesn’t address the numerous weaknesses we’ve got in the squad. Sure, keep Coutinho, Lallana, Mane, Firmino and Clyne happy but what about the chronic lack of a defensive midfielder – which has cost us dearly this year – or somebody to give some sense of purpose to the defence? Is Milner the best we can get for LB, with that walking disaster Moreno as his back-up?
    What about Mork and Mindy, up front? Sturridge and Origi can’t do what we want in our team pattern yet the transfer window slams shut in a few hours with no dealings being made. Lucas is still with us, at the moment I’m writing this, as is Sakho and Stewart (unless there is something very last minute), we’ve still got dodgy keepers and we could most certainly do with a bit more width.
    Our star players cannot do it all and, currently, the lack of depth in our squad is causing us major problems. Will we beat Chelsea? God knows, but if we don’t we’ll be overtaken for fourth spot within a few days and, on current form, I can’t see us regaining that spot . . . and in a few hours the door slams tightly SHUT! A chance missed? Oh, yes!
