Key Liverpool trio set for new deals

Key Liverpool trio set for new deals

Liverpool intend to open contract discussions with Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren before the season ends.

Coutinho's deal runs until 2020 but Liverpool are ready to offer him a longer deal following tentative reports linking the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain with the 24-year-old Brazil star.

Midfielder Lallana and defender Lovren both joined the Reds from Southampton in the summer of 2014 and the pair are currently contracted to the club until 2019.

England international Lallana has been in fine form this term with three goals in eight appearances, while Lovren has firmly established himself as a key member of Jurgen Klopp's back line.

Liverpool now hope to secure the long-term futures of the trio and it has been suggested they will open contract negotiations in the New Year.
