Liverpool have rejected an £8million bid from Swansea City for Joe Allen, reports the Mirror.

The Reds are willing to sell the Welsh midfielder this summer as Jurgen Klopp overhauls the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers.

Allen is open to a move away from Anfield having failed to establish himself as a first team regular under the German since he took charge in October of last year.

He has featured on occasion and impressed, but at 26-years-old needs regular game time to avoid his career coming to a standstill.

Former club Swansea City are keen on bringing him back to the Liberty Stadium but currently the two sides are far apart in their valuation of the player.

According to the Mirror, the Reds want around £10million for their man as they seek to recoup much of the £15million they paid for him four years ago.

As a result they have rejected the Swans initial £8million bid for his services and it now remains to be seen whether they will return with an improved bid to secure his signature this summer.
