Ever growing Liverpool cult hero could soon join Gareth Bale in Spain

Joe AllenJoe Allen has established himself as somewhat of a cult hero with the Liverpool fans that frequent the Transfer Tavern after a mini renaissance under Jurgen Klopp.

However, the Sun has reported that his recent resurgence at Anfield could be short lived as interest in the Welshman mounts ahead of the looming summer transfer window.

Despite being given a standing ovation by Reds faithful following his substitution during the 4-1 thumping of Stoke City last weekend, he will soon be entering the final year of his contract.

It is understood that there is not currently a new deal on the table and that FOUR Premier League teams, as well as a La Liga outfit, have registered an interest in the former Swansea star.

International teammate Gareth Bale has largely enjoyed great success since move to Real Madrid in 2013, despite going through tough periods last season.

Wales boss Chris Coleman has spoken of his preference to see the likes of Bale remain in Spain due to the less physical nature of play when compared to the Premier League.

A return to South Wales, where he left almost four years ago in order to move Liverpool for £12m, has previously been mooted.

Can you really see Joe Allen playing in La Liga? Has he done enough to earn himself a new deal with Liverpool?
