Liverpool will test Swansea resolve for Allen, Sigurdsson

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is planning a double raid on former club Swansea City.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is planning a double raid on former club Swansea City.

The Daily Star Sunday says Wales international Joe Allen, who is valued at £10m, and £6m Icelander Gylfi Sigurdsson are his top two midfield targets.

Both Allen, 22, and fellow midfielder Sigurdsson, 22, when on loan from German club Hoffenheim, played under Rodgers at Swansea last season.

But as there is an agreement that the Kop boss won’t poach players from his former club for 12 months, unless the deal suits both parties, Rodgers might have to wait for Allen.
