Swansea coach Alan Curtis has confirmed the club have had an enquiry for Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen knocked back – but has cooled links to Jordan Rhodes.
The Swans have been seeking to bolster their midfield after allowing Jonjo Shelvey to leave for Newcastle in a £12million deal last week.
They enquired about the possibility of re-signing midfielder Joe Allen from Liverpool – but the Reds dismissed the approach.
Curtis, speaking at a press conference to preview Sunday’s trip to Everton, admitted Allen had come under their radar, but said a firm bid never materialised.
“There was no concrete offer. I think we’ve sounded out the availability of so many players,” Curtis revealed.
“Joe would be one of a number of names the club will have considered.”
Only bottom side Aston Villa have scored fewer Premier League goals than Swansea this season and, with that in mind, Curtis has previously stated signing a striker is a priority for the Swans.
But asked about a potential bid for Blackburn forward Rhodes, Curtis added: “I don’t think Jordan’s name has been mentioned.”
