The 2019-20 season is set to restart after a lengthy hiatus enforced by the COVID-19 outbreak, with Liverpool facing Everton in their first match back on June 21.
"I feel in my time at Liverpool I've always looked to do the right thing for the team, the manager and the club in every decision I've made.
"I think this one fits into that category as well, so I'm buzzing to be seeing out this campaign and hopefully get to celebrate something memorable with an amazing group of people."
Lallana, who joined from Southampton in 2014, has struggled with injuries over the last two season and has featured in 15 league games during the current campaign.
"I know how highly sought after Adam is in this moment by other clubs who want him for next season, so for him this is a commitment to us and we are very appreciative to him for it," said Klopp.
