Lallana welcomes competition: I want Liverpool buying world's best


Adam Lallana is backing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to strengthen their title challenge.

Liverpool may be resigned to missing out on RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita this summer but Lallana is excited about what this squad could achieve.

“I want the best players to be linked with Liverpool and coming to Liverpool,” he said.

“If you are talking about it from a personal point of view, the pressure to get better and the competition for places is healthy. That is what we need.

“At times last year, our bench probably wasn’t as strong as we would have liked it to be.

“If we are going to achieve something, we are going to need a strong bench. We need a strong squad and players need to be on their toes. It is all good.

“I think there are 30 players out here with the three goalkeepers and a few young lads. That is a hell of a lot of players.

“You only have to look at the subs that he makes. He is now replacing pace with pace and goals with goals.

“We have got plenty of options and if we keep everyone fit, who knows what could happen?”
