According to Sky Sports, Swansea City will wait until Joe Allen has held talks with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp before making another move to sign him.

The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield this summer after falling down the pecking order at the club.

He featured under Klopp last season, but the German often preferred trio Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Emre Can ahead of him in his starting line up.

Allen is likely to have several options available to him should he decide to leave, with his star performances for Wales in their run to the semi finals of Euro 2016 having caught the eye.

One club who are thought to be interested is former club Swansea City, with the Mirror reporting three weeks ago that that Liverpool had rejected an £8 million bid for his services.

And now Sky Sports report that the Swans will wait until Allen has held talks with Klopp about his future before making a further offer for his services. 

They report that the Welsh side are instead focusing on adding forwards to their squad and will now wait on a move to bring their former star back to the Liberty Stadium until a definitive decision has been made about his Liverpool future.
