“He has played at the very highest level, for both club and country, and achieved great things," head coach Graham Potter told the club's official website.
“To have both his experience and quality out on the pitch will be a great addition for us and I know he will be an excellent role model for our younger players in the squad."
Lallana made 15 top-flight appearances this season while also playing in both matches as Jurgen Klopp’s side won the FIFA Club World Cup in December.
The midfielder has made a total of 196 Premier League appearances, scoring 30 goals and providing 28 assists.
