Swansea City are considering a bid for Liverpool’s Wales midfielder Joe Allen.
Liverpool have accepted an offer of around £13m from Stoke for the 26-year-old but Swans chairman Huw Jenkins admits the club is interested in Allen.
Swansea’s American takeover has been completed and Allen, whom theclub sold to Liverpool for £15m in 2012, could be the new board’s first signing.
“Joe is one of our own players and if at all possible we would probably make that signing,” said Jenkins.
Jenkins revealed the Swans have already spoken to Liverpool about re-signing Allen, who has one year left on his Anfield contract, and confirmed the club will “put in a little bit more effort” now their American takeover has been finalised.
The Swansea chief also confirmed the club’s interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Belgium attacking midfielder Nacer Chadli after being linked with a £15m bid.
