Swansea City are weighing up a bid for Bolton Wanderers’ Mark Davies as Liverpool’s interest in midfielder Joe Allen intensifies, according to The Daily Mail.
Davies joined Bolton in 2009 and became an increasingly regular part of the team due to his energetic, dynamic midfield displays. However, his best season as an individual, with 35 league appearances and four goals, coincided with his side suffering relegation from the Premier League last term.
He could receive salvation in the form of Swansea as the Welsh club plan for life without Joe Allen with former manager Brendan Rodgers growing increasingly keen over a bid for the midfielder.
Talking of Allen, Rodgers said to The Daily Mail: “I have a great relationship with Swansea but if there is a market for any of the players, I would like to be in that market.”
Liverpool may well capture the 22-year-old who will represent Team GB at the Olympics with a £12m bid and Michael Laudrup will use some of those funds to sign Davies, who is believed to be available at £6m.
The Anfield club are also believed to be close to securing the signature of Clint Dempsey from Fulham but the futures of Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam and Craig Bellamy all remain uncertain.
