Transfer News: Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen urged to sign and Everton want Porto star

The Swans are ready to meet Liverpool’s £10million valuation for Allen, 26, after having an initial £8m bid rejected.

And that would delight Taylor, who rates his pal as one of the best midfielders in the business.

Taylor praised Allen for a slide-rule pass to Aaron Ramsey against Russia which demonstrated his undoubted ability.

He said: “It has been raved about here. If somebody else from another team had played that pass, if it was a Spanish player, they wouldn’t stop talking about it.

“Joe has done well here in the Euros.”

Gareth Bale applauds Allen, too, and said: “We know how vitally important he is and how amazing he is.”

Allen has a year left on his Liverpool deal and West Brom and West Ham are among a host of clubs showing interest, as well as Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.
