Premier League club make public play for Liverpool 26-year-old, player considering move
By Amir Mir
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has admitted his club are interested in re-signing Joe Allen.
The South Wales Evening Post have cited quotes from Jenkins where he openly admits that the Welsh club are looking to bring back Allen to the Liberty stadium.
The 26-year-old was brought to Anfield by Brendan Rodgers for a fee of £15million in 2012, the Northern Irishman has since been sacked and been replaced by Jürgen Klopp.
It is said that with a year remaining on Allen’s contract and no talk of an offer on the table, the Welshman could return to where it all started in Pembrokeshire.
The midfielder is currently on international duty with Wales, as they look to cause a few upsets in the up-coming European Championships in France.

Jenkins believes his former player could switch clubs after Euro 2016, despite the Merseyside club rebuffing a loan bid from Francesco Guidolin in January.
“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 Echo.
“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, who has 25 international caps made 19 appearances in the Premier League last season, including an impressive run at the latter end of the campaign where he scored two goals.
