As reported by The Sun, Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a big money move for Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen this summer.
Having won the English Championship, Wolves are already looking ahead to next season and thinking about the squad that will be needed to keep them in the English Premier League on their return.
One player on their radar is Joe Allen, who The Sun report is a £20m target for Nuno Espirito Santo this summer.
The paper reckon Wolves are desperate to add a homegrown talent or two to their squad of established, talented foreigners and the former Swansea City man tops their wishlist.
With strong technical ability, dogged determination and defensive attributes, Joe Allen would theoretically fit perfectly into Wolves already talented midfield and could complement the likes of Ruben Neves very well indeed.
Now 28 years of age, the Welsh international has seven years of Premier League experience under his belt, including a spell at elite club Liverpool.
He has the ability and profile of someone who can undoubtedly help Wolves beat the drop next term and would help an already cohesive unit find their feet in the top-flight.
At the reported £20m, he’d cost a lot of money, but they’ll have the resources now they’re set to reap the rewards of the Premier League. It’s a potential signing that should excite supporters.
