David Moyes wants to sign Stoke midfielder Joe Allen. The West Ham boss has made the 27-year-old Wales international one of his main targets for the January transfer window as he looks to reshape his side. Allen is a key man at the Bet365 under Mark Hughes. He is of interest to Moyes because of his versatility - Allen is able to play in advanced position but is also effective as a deeper-lying midfielder. Signed in the summer of 2016 by Stoke from Liverpool, Allen has had a number of Premier League admirers for some time. Swansea, who lost him in 2012, tried to sign him for now-departed Paul Clement during this year’s summer transfer window as a replacement for Gylfi Sigurdsson.
