According to the reports from Britain, Welsh club are eager to strengthen their midfield options for next season and bringing star like their former academy graduate Allen would help them to achieve their goal.

Welsh international star has managed just seven Premier League starts this term while making a further 11 league appearances from the bench.

Allen has fallen a long way down in the pecking order at Anfield, and there have been talks that he will leave Anfield after the end of the current campaign.

Alongside with Swansea City Liverpool bitter rivals Manchester United are also eyeing move for Welshman. However, Bookies have made Francesco Guidolin’s side favourites to beat reds in the race for the 26-year old Brendan Rodgers favourite midfielder.
