Swansea manager Michael Laudrup will hold talks with Joe Allen this week to find out if the midfielder wants to join Liverpool.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers recently confirmed he is interested in raiding his former club for the 22-year-old, who has just returned from Olympic Duty with Team GB, and reports over the past few days have suggested a move to Merseyside is close to being agreed.
Last week, the South Wales Evening Post reported that Allen's camp had been given permission to speak to Liverpool and that personal terms had already been agreed, while bookmakers at the weekend suspended betting on the Wales international moving to Anfield before the end of the transfer window.
Liverpool are believed to have offered £12.5million for Allen, with the Swans possibly also being offered the chance to take a player on loan for the next twelve months.
Allen's contract contains a clause which would allow him to leave the Welsh club should they receive an offer of £15m.
Monday saw Laudrup meet Allen for the first time since succeeding Rodgers as manager in June.
"Joe Allen showed up today at the training ground, he did not train but I had a small chat with him, but we did not touch the subject right now," Laudrup said.
"I did not think it was the proper moment, but we will have to talk about that with the player to see what he wants so we can say something official, otherwise the rumours will go on until August 31st, which is not in anyone's interest.
"On Wednesday he will be back in training with the other two guys who have been at the Olympics and then we will have some talks so it does not go on until the last day of the transfer window."
