"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," ITV Sport quotes Laudrup as saying.
"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 31, 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."
Allen came through the youth ranks at the Liberty Stadium.
