Joe Allen's Form Has Caused Transfer Bidding War, Per Report

The curious case of Joe Allen's transfer value has been a surprising source of positivity for Liverpool this summer. After struggling to get into the team this past season and making few highlights beyond a last gasp goal against Arsenal and a cover photo on a magazine about chickens, the midfielder was tabbed for a summer exit. He seemed to carry a much lower value than the £15 million Liverpool spent on in him in 2012, so a loss on that prior investment was expected. But Allen's resurgent European Championships performance for Wales has made him a hot commodity among mid table Premier...

EVERY day is Joe Allen appreciation day. Gareth Bale laughed when he was asked for his reaction to the social media tributes that have flowed in for the midfielder ever since his performance against Russia underlined his Euro 2016 form. Suddenly, since Allen stepped out onto the field with the kind of confidence and assured belief in his game to go with his natural talent, the viral pictures and videos are less of the mocking kind and more of genuine appreciation for his...

Rumour Mongering: Joe Allen Bidding War?

As he leads his Welsh people into the promised land of the Euro knockout stages, Joe Allen is attracting several suitors from the Premier League. Loveable as he is, and despite a nice run of league games towards the end of the season as Jürgen Klopp focused more and more on the Europa League, Joe Allen accumulated only 1800 mintues of first team football last year and does not seem to be a certain starter in his manager's eyes. This hasn't prevented him from becoming a key player and influential figure for his international team as they look to carry their momentum from the group stage...

Your Transfer Rumour is Bullshit: Joe Allen to Sevilla Edition

Joe Allen to Sevilla got a little bit of traction today in the land of rumour mongers. It’s a perfect example of the way bad rumours can perpetuate themselves. Joe Allen’s time as a Liverpool player is probably nearing its end. Liverpool would, by most accounts, be more than happy to keep him around as a rotation option, and would even offer him a new deal on that basis, but the 26-year-old would understandably like to be a starter somewhere. And Liverpool simply cannot gauruntee him that kind of a role, especially given Jürgen Klopp has made a pair of midfielders—Piotr Zielinski and...
