Monk rates the young midfielder highly.
â€śJoe Allen has great potential,â€ť Swans captain Monk told Talksport. â€śHeâ€™s right up there with the top players at the club.
â€śHeâ€™s level-headed which really helps him deal with pressure situations. He doesnâ€™t get linked to the likes of Liverpool for no reason.
â€śHeâ€™s been tremendous for us. When he came through as a young lad you could see in training sessions how good he was.
â€śHe was brilliant last year. He controlled midfield and stamped his authority, you donâ€™t often see that with someone so young. Heâ€™s only going to get better, so Iâ€™m not surprised to see him linked to Liverpool.â€ť
