Latest reports from Kopsource and The Times say that Liverpool have finally met Swansea’s buy-out clause of £15 million for one Joe Allen.
Michael Laudrup had laughably suggested that Allen was worth closer to £20 million, considering thats what Liverpool paid for Stuart Downing from Villa last year.
It is what it is, if Brendan Rodgers & FSG have agreed to meet his £15 million escape-clause then the midfielder will be joining Liverpool this week.
Let us hope that the spending doesn’t stop there as we still need another striker, a winger and maybe a central defender if Danny Agger decides to leave Anfield for mega-bucks Man City.
A nervous three weeks lie ahead as Rodgers looks to strengthen the Liverpool team.
