Swansea are bracing themselves for a double raid from Liverpool with Kenny Dalglish keen on Scott Sinclair and Joe Allen.
Brendan Rodgers' pass masters have been a revelation in the Premier League this season, with several of those who shone in the Championship making a seamless transition into the top flight.
Chief to that has been Allen, who's sensible use of the ball has seen him record the highest pass completion rate of anyone in Europe's big leagues - beating the likes of Barcelona duo Xavi and Andreas Iniesta.
The 21-year-old Wales international has been with the Swans since he was nine and signed a new deal with the club at the start of their first Premier League season.
Manager Rodgers is desperate to keep hold of the core of his team and Liverpool are understood to be biding their time over a move for Allen.
The same can't be said for Sinclair with the Reds already tabling a £5million bid for the player.
The former Chelsea man's pace has been one of the most devastating aspects of Swansea's rise into the top half of the table, and he, like Allen, fit the young British mould favoured by Dalglish.
Sinclair has proved himself capable of coping at the highest level, too, showing a cool head of penalty duty, most recently against Arsenal.
