Reported Liverpool target Adam Lallana outlines his ambitions to play in the Champions League.

Southampton captain Adam Lallana has stated his ambition to play Champions League football.

The Saints skipper is a reported target for Liverpool, who will be in Europe's premier competition for the first time in five years next term.

The Reds have allegedly tabled a £20m offer the talented playmaker, although the Saints are holding out for an extra £5m.

Lallana, who is part of England's World Cup squad, told reporters: "I'm ambitious. I have aspirations to play in the Champions League.

"Ever since I've played international football, you realise there's that other level to play at. It would be great.

"I went to a couple of the Champions League games last year and the feeling you get, the buzz, it's an unbelievable atmosphere. It's definitely a goal of mine to play in the Champions League."

The 26-year-old contributed nine goals and six assists for Southampton last season.
