Could Swansea pair find success at Anfield?
Liverpool have made Swansea City’s emergent midfielder Joe Allen one of their targets for this summer having been impressed with his rise to prominence this season.
The Wales international, 21, who caught the eye again in Sunday’s 3-2 win for Swansea against Arsenal, has been scouted by Liverpool since an impressive performance at Anfield in his club’s 0-0 draw there in September. He signed a contract at the start of this season that ties him to Swansea, with whom he has been since the age of nine, until 2015.
A move for Allen looks unlikely this month, especially with Liverpool’s priority being a striker, and Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers having discouraged any interest in his players.
LIVERPOOL have made an offer for £5m rated Swansea striker Scott Sinclair.
The former Chelsea forward has caught the eye of Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish.
Sinclair would be seen as an ideal signing as he can play out wide as well as up front.
Dalglish is looking to bolster his attacking options before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.
His side have struggled for goals this season, having scored just 24 goals in 21 Premier League matches.

With Swansea City performing so well this season, there was always likely to be interest in their players – particularly when they play such an modern style.
But would these two Swans players help Liverpool become a force in the Premier League?
The Independent do not believe a move for Joe Allen will happen this January, but deem a summer transfer the more likely.
Scott Sinclair is seen as a more immediate solution, as he can play both wide and up front.
The former Chelsea winger’s 6 goals in 19 Premier League starts is a solid total for a player on the flank, and his lightning pace would offer Liverpool a different option.
However, the feeling remains that Kenny Dalglish will have to pay substantially more than the £5m quoted in the Daily Star.
