Liverpool Boss Wants £16m Rated Swansea City Pair

Anfield side chase Liberty Stadium duo.

Liverpool continue to monitor Swansea winger Scott Sinclair, who is stalling over a new deal.

Tottenham, Aston Villa and Fulham are also interested in the England youth international, who enjoyed a stellar campaign back in the Premier League.

Sinclair came through the ranks at Chelsea but barely made an impact at Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old spent time on loan at Wigan before joining Brendan Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium.

The £6million-rated winger has only 14 months left on his deal and is expected to resume talks over a new contract in the next week.

Liverpool have monitored Joe Allen for some time with Kenny Dalglish an admirer before Brendan Rodgers’ arrival at Anfield. Rodgers’ admiration for Allen was evident in how much he trusted him while at Swansea and the 22-year-old is a player he would like at Liverpool if possible. Tottenham also like £10m-rated Allen and chairman Daniel Levy is always weighing up potential sell-on value. Yet it may be too big a step to expect him to replace White Hart Lane idol Luka Modric in this window.

It’s no big surprise that former Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers would be interest in his former charges but one wonders if the Welsh club will entertain any advances from the Liverpool boss, regardless of how much he offers for the club’s top talents.

New boss Michael Laudrup will be eager to keep hold of the players that helped secure a respectable finish in their first season in the Premier League and will no doubt be looking to land a new addition or two in order to put his stamp on the Swansea City squad.

For his part Rodgers probably sees Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen as two players who can add to the quality of the squad he has inherited from Kenny Dalglish, a squad that secured the club’s worst top tier finish in over 60 years.

Former Chelsea attacker Sinclair could be an adaptable weapon that Rodgers feels would offer a new option for the Liverpool attack. The 23 year old can play either in a wide role or could be an added orthodox forward to add to a threadbare attack that currently only includes Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll and veteran Craig Bellamy.

Joe Allen is a talented central midfielder but Rodgers has a number of players to pick from in that role among his Anfield squad though perhaps the likes of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam are yet to prove themselves so again a move for the pint sized maestro could fit the bill.
