Get Allen and him in for a year and we'd start having a working/actually possibly really good central midfield again. It's been a while.
Hoped we could do this last year. The Mourinho connection to Rodgers seems like an awful lot of "two plus two"-ing. If other Premier League clubs are serious about him, we may not compete for his signature. Then again, we were, allegedly at least interested when he was leaving Dortmund, so hopefully we'll have done our homework on him and would be ready to pounce if the opportunity to sign him on loan does arise.
