Liverpool to bid for Swansea star

Liverpool are set to bid for Swansea ace Joe Allen.

Rodgers has already taken ex-Swansea player Fabio Borini to Anfield and is considering another raid.

Allen’s passing and creativity is high on Liverpool’s wanted list. With Brendan Rodgers already confirming interest in him.

Brendan Rodgers: “I have a great relationship with Swansea but if there is a market for any of the players, I would like to be in that market.”

“They respect that. He is a very talented player, which everyone knows but there is nothing more at the moment. When players come to a club such as Liverpool, it’s never straight forward.”

“There are always other barriers and difficulties. At this moment, there are ongoing negotiations on a few targets.”

“We hope we’re close to some deals. I need to evaluate the players we have and assess the squad and bring some in to bring freshness to the group.”As a manager you want them in sooner rather than later but the main thing is to get them in before the beginning of the season. If we do that, our job will be done.”

The Northern Irishman has admitted making enquiries about Fulham’s Clint Dempsey and the Liverpool boss has now gone public with more transfer plans.

He is now expected to put in a bid for Joe Allen.
