Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been quoted by The Scottish Sun as saying that he would look at all players he has previously worked with - including Joe Allen.

The new Bhoys manager has been in charge for almost a month now and is yet to take his first foray into the summer transfer window, with some Hoops fans keen to see new faces brought in ahead of the Champions League qualifiers later this summer.

It's unclear just who Rodgers will target, but The Scottish Sun note that Rodgers wants to reunite with Aston Villa winger Scott Sinclair, having worked together at Swansea City.

Another Rodgers favourite has been talked about for a move to Glasgow is Joe Allen, with the Liverpool midfielder potentially available this summer.

Rodgers worked with Allen at Swansea and then reunited at Liverpool, making him an important part of his Reds side before Rodgers was sacked in October 2015.

With Allen struggling for first-team football under Rodgers' replacement Jurgen Klopp, some believe that Allen will leave Merseyside this summer - and naturally, the prospect of him working under Rodgers for a third time has been floated.

Currently in France representing Wales at Euro 2016, Allen has impressed, and Rodgers was asked about the possibility of bringing the midfielder to Celtic this summer.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, Rodgers was coy when asked about a possible deal for the 26-year-old, suggestin that he will look at all players he has worked with previously - but did admit that Allen is 'a wonderful player'.

"Joe is a wonderful player," said Rodgers. "I always look at all my former players.," he added. Whether Rodgers has the budget to move for Allen remains to be seen, and it would certainly be an ambitious move from the Bhoys to try and sign Allen this summer given that many Premier League teams would no doubt love to have him in their teams.
