Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins reckons the club can lure Joe Allen back to Wales this summer. The 26-year-old midfielder joined Liverpool in 2012, but has recently admitted his future on Merseyside is dependent on the players manager Jurgen Klopp opts to sign this summer.
With uncertainty hanging over Allen's Liverpool situation, Swansea's chairman has talked up the prospect of striking a cut-price deal for their former player. Allen has just 12 months left on his Liverpool deal and could conceivably leave the club for considerably less than his market value.
"I think it's been well documented that Joe is going to look at his future when he is finished out at Euro 2016," Jenkins said of the Liverpool man, according to The Mirror. "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."
Allen is currently preparing for the start of the European Championships with Wales. As the midfielder has previously said, he will wait to see who Klopp signs for Liverpool this summer before he makes a firm decision about his future.
"I think it hinges on the pre-season plans and what exactly the club are hoping to do, everything comes into that," he said in May, according to the Liverpool Echo. "The acquisitions and who they are going to get in, and until all that happens then it is difficult to answer that question. As a footballer you want to play every minute of every game."
