Joe Allen: Leaves Liverpool for Stoke switch

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has admitted Swansea City are interested in signing Liverpool’s Joe Allen.

Allen has just a year to run on the contract he signed when he joined Liverpool from Swansea in a £15million deal back in 2012. And with no sign of a new deal on the table from Jurgen Klopp all the signs are that Allen could leave Anfield this summer.

If that happens then Swansea will be at the head of the queue for the 26-year-old, who is in France as part of the Wales squad for Euro 2016.

“I think it has been well-documented that Joe is going to look at his future when he is finished out at Euro 2016,” Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.

“Naturally, we are interested in good players like Joe who may be available this summer given that he has a year left on his contract.

“Obviously we will keep tabs on his situation and see what happens later in the summer.”

Celtic have also been linked with Allen, whose agent said last month that he feared Liverpool would ask for too much money if they decided to sell him.

Swans boss Francesco Guidolin is believed to be an admirer of Allen, who Swansea enquired about back in January.
