Liverpool have been advised to offer Adam Lallana a second chance to impress after the England international was linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur. The 28-year-old has failed to recapture his best form from his spell with Southampton and has been offered the opportunity to link-up with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.

The Sun understand Pochettino has made Lallana his number one priority in the upcoming summer transfer window and has asked Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to make the move happen in a deal which could be worth £20m. The former Saints player has scored 11 goals this term but despite impressing Jurgen Klopp is not yet a guaranteed started at Anfield.

Harry Kane led Tottenham's title charge for much of the campaign, netting 25 goals so far this term, but there have been calls for the club to add to their attack. Lallana would represent a shrewd addition to the forward line by Dietmar Hamann has a warning for Liverpool if they decide to sell the player.

"If Lallana were to leave, it would be a big surprise because he has come good lately and shown improved form under the new manager," he told TalkSport. "He is a very talented player. He is one of the players I love to watch and one of the players England has really produced in the last ten to 15 years who has got beautiful balance, uses both feet, has great vision.

"Unfortunately he hasn't done it often enough for Liverpool but I wouldn't give up the ghost. If the penny drops, he is a game changer and with [Roberto] Firmino and [Philippe] Coutinho and either [Divock] Origi or [Daniel] Sturridge he forms a pretty formidable front four."

Lallana is set to play a central role in Liverpool's attempts to end the season with a flourish, with the club chasing a top five finish in the Premier League before the Europa League final against Sevilla. The final in Basel could see Jurgen Klopp claim his first trophy as Reds boss and ensure they qualify for next season's Champions League.
