Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted interest in Swansea City midfielder Joe Allen.

Rodgers would welcome the chance to bring Allen to Anfield this summer.

"I have a great relationship with Swansea, but if there is a market for any of the players I would like to be in that market," he said.

"They respect that. He is a very talented player, which everyone knows, but there is nothing more at the moment. When players come to a club such as Liverpool, it's never straightforward."
