Jurgen Klopp addresses transfer speculation over Liverpool midfielder

Jurgen Klopp discusses his plans for Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen

Jurgen Klopp says he wants to find a solution with Joe Allen amid ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Liverpool midfielder’s future at Anfield.

The Wales international struggled to secure a regular first-team place in Klopp’s side following the German’s appointment as Brendan Rodgers’s successor in October.

Allen has just one year remaining on his current contract with the Merseyside outfit after moving to Liverpool from Swansea City in a £15m deal in 2011.

The 27-year-old was one of the standout midfielders at Euro 2016 as Allen helped Chris Coleman’s side reach the European championship semi-finals in France.

Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Swansea are reported to be interested in re-signing the Welsh midfielder this summer, while Europa League winners Sevilla are touted as another interested party in the Welsh midfielder.

Klopp, whose Liverpool side have recorded pre-season victories over Tranmere Rovers and Fleetwood Town so far, cast doubt on Allen’s future with his most-recent comments on the Welsh midfielder.

“We will find a solution but it’s not done,” Klopp told BBC Radio Five Live.

“Obviously Joe Allen is a good player; we never doubted this. He played a good European Championship, like the whole Welsh team.

“We have to make decisions, we have to find solutions.

“We have to talk to the player, ask the player and think about our situation. That’s how it works.”

Allen has scored seven times in 129 appearances in all competitions for the 18-time English champions over five seasons for Liverpool.
