Got to be one of the stupidest rumours and links I've ever seen. Even though Thelwell has been watching Stoke a lot I wonder who he's watching— Tom (@WolvesAyWe90) May 18, 2019
You’ve got to ask yourself, “could Joe Allen do a job for us?”.......... no, no he couldn’t— wolfie2244 (@wolfie2244) May 18, 2019
Imagine getting a job as a sporting director of a football club. Your job is essentially to travel the world to whatever place you want and watch footballers you think would improve the club you work at. So you decide to go to Stoke every weekend to watch Bauer, Clucas and Allen.— Wolves Rumours ‘n Stuff (@WWFC_Transfers) May 18, 2019
Allen is a good midfielder who has been a success in the Premier League, but it is hard to see Wolves sign the 29-year-old even as a squad player.
Nuno’s side have better players than the former Swansea City midfielder, and given the Wanderers’ lofty ambition of playing in Europe on a regular basis in the coming years, it is hard to envisage them signing a 29-year-old from the second tier of English football.
According to WhoScored, Allen made 46 appearances in the Championship for Stoke this season, scoring six goals and providing four assists in the process.
