Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will firm up his long standing interest in Daniel Sturridge by placing a bid for the Chelsea striker on January 1st. He will also attempt to prise Tom Ince from Blackpool, despite feverish interest in the player from a host of Premier League clubs.
The Guardian reports that, with only 1 fit striker, the Liverpool top brass will loosen the purse strings just enough to let out the £18m required to snare the pair. Sturridge is available and willing for £12m. The cost of Ince would be offset by the sell on fee that Liverpool themselves could be expected to net from their initial purchase of the player – Ince left Anfield just last year.
If Rodgers is quick off the mark Liverpool could realistically get these two in to bring even more youth to a forward line which already boasts the precocious speed demon, Raheem Sterling.
