Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen reportedly has at least six clubs interested in him after his performances at the European Championships for Wales.

According to Matt Law of The Telegraph four Premier League clubs, including Allen’s former club Swansea City, are among those interested in signing the Liverpool man.

An unnamed Russian side and Spanish club Sevilla are said to be the foreign suitors for the 26-year-old.

Southampton are named as one of the other Premier League sides showing interest.

Allen’s performances since Jurgen Klopp‘s arrival have earned him praise from many and he’s become a likeable figure among fans who were less than impressed with the midfielder under Brendan Rodgers.

With just 12 months left on his Liverpool contract, Allen has been left questioning his future after claims that Klopp is yet to discuss the midfielder’s inclusion in his plans.

Liverpool’s pursuit of Mahmoud Dahoud continues and if they can sign the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder, it looks likely Allen will be fully out of the picture.

Despite some good performances for Liverpool last season, Allen was often second best to Germany’s Emre Can and that’s unlikely to change despite an impressive European Championship display with Wales.

Swansea were quoted £11 million for the midfielder but appear to be unwilling to pay that figure due to the lack of time left on Allen’s contract.

They could hold out until January to push for a pre-contract agreement to take him on a free at the end of his contract.

Sevilla will most likely look to do the same because they wouldn’t be able to match Liverpool’s asking price.

If the midfielder doesn’t sign for a new club in the summer, it’s likely he’ll have a new destination agreed in January after playing an important role in Wales’ road to the European Championship semi-final.

After Wales’ exit from the Euros, Allen will now have three weeks off before he is due to return to training with the Reds, giving him time to mull over his future.
