Liverpool dropped out of the top four last week after defeat to Hull and face a tough test this weekend against Tottenham.
But Liverpool are still keen to tie down their top assests with Philippe Coutinho recently penning an extension as well.
However Klopp has wary of talking about Lallana's deal.
“Adam is a very important player for us. He already has a pretty long contract,” he said.

“How close is a new one? We don’t talk about this. It says nothing about his importance if we are negotiating or not.
“We have to talk to the player, the agents and then, when something is decided, we will inform you.”
The midfielder, 28, joined Liverpool from Southampton and has flourished under Klopp.
He's added goals to his game this season and has scored seven times in the Premier League and once for England.
