Liverpool ready to swoop for Swansea midfielder Allen


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Wednesday 25 July 2012

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is close to the signing of his second player of the summer, with Fabio Borini expected to be joined by Swansea City midfielder Joe Allen, the Daily Mail has reported.



A fee of £15m has been suggested but the sum is complicated by a clause in Allen’s contract, as well as the agreement between the sides that former Swansea boss Rodgers would not move for a player at his old club unless another club made an offer first.


Allen’s contract states that if one of five clubs - Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal or Chelsea - wants to sign Allen, they must pay £15m. But if a club not listed makes a lower offer then the clause is invalid. Liverpool or the other four named clubs could then offer whatever sum they see fit.


Liverpool are thought to be one of a number of clubs interested in the 22-year-old but would appear to have the edge in the race to sign the Team GB squad member, as Allen is expected to link up with his former manager Rodgers should the opportunity arise.
