Lallana has had a stunning season and is almost certain to make England’s World Cup squad for Brazil, which is announced by Roy Hodgson tomorrow.
But as speculation continues to swirl around the 26-year-old playmaker, he’s revealed he has big decisions to make this summer.
Lallana said: “I got emotional because it’s been a journey that I couldn’t have dreamed of – but I’m not saying that this is the end by any means.
“Obviously, with how well the club and its players have done, there are going to be some decisions to make in the summer, and maybe it all hit home a little bit when I was speaking [at the club’s awards night].
“How far we’ve come in a short space of time is beyond anyone’s belief. We’ve won our league, in our eyes, with where we’ve finished.
“We’re now in a position where we have to sit down as a club and decide what is best and what’s the right route to take, because we want to be a stable club – that’s the main thing.
“We want to be competing in the Premier League for the next four or five years and forever longer.
“I feel I’ve been honest throughout my whole career and I want to be honest now to whoever I’m speaking to, whether it’s the fans, the manager or anyone.
“Every fan would realise that there’s big potential in our team and we have players who can go and play at a higher level – we proved that when there were 16 of our lads away on international duty.
“I’m certainly ambitious. I want to one day play in the Champions League and compete for the Premier League title, but I still feel like I’m the same guy I was when we were playing in League One and the Championship.
“I haven’t changed my personality or changed as a person. It’s a privilege to be in this position and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
