Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is set to extend his terms with the club until 2021, improving his wages to £150,000 a week.

The 28-year-old is in line to be the third Reds player to sign a new deal since the turn of the year, following Philippe Coutinho and Joe Gomez.

And with Coutinho agreeing a five-year deal on a similar wage, Lallana could be set to become one of Liverpool’s highest earners, according to the Telegraph.

This serves to reward the playmaker for his fine form since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, with Lallana one of the most improved players of the German’s reign.

His move into a central midfield role has seen him employ a more positive approach, scoring seven goals and assisting a further seven in 26 appearances so far this season.

He has attuned adeptly to Klopp’s ethos, serving as his lieutenant on the field, barking orders and leading the press.

Having joined from Southampton in 2014, in a deal worth £20 million, Lallana is likely to spend the rest of his peak years on Merseyside, with his new contract taking him up to 33.

This is a significant showing of faith from Klopp, whose current oldest outfield player is Ragnar Klavan, at 31.

But with Lallana widely regarded as the fittest of the Reds’ squad, he is clearly expected to maintain this into his latter years—or, he could again change roles in the future.

Liverpool are believed to be set to discuss a new deal with Dejan Lovren in the fullness of time, too.

Meanwhile, Emre Can has been in talks with the club for a lengthy period, though he is yet to come to an agreement over his wages.

Klavan, Daniel Sturridge, Alberto Moreno and Divock Origi are likely to be the next considered, with their deals currently set to expire at the end of 2018/19.
