LIVERPOOL last night went public to admit: We want Ashley Young.
And they are also trying to capture Blackpool star Charlie Adam as the purse strings are loosened at Anfield.
The Reds are willing to splash £15m for Young if they can tempt Villa to sell – and are ready to go as high as £6m to capture Scottish midfielder Adam after a £4m bid was rejected last night.
Manager Kenny Dalglish is eager to bolster his struggling squad this month, and is already closing in on a deal for Ajax striker Luis Suarez.
But now director of football strategy Damien Comolli has admitted the interest in Young .
Comolli said: “As for Young, if he is available then he will be of interest for us. We are looking primarily for an offensive player because the team is short of pace.”
Blackpool boss Holloway is desperate to hold on to the man who has played a major role in his side’s shock rise to the top 10.
But Liverpool are ready to double his £12,000-a-week wages, knowing the ex-Rangers man would jump at the prospect of a big-money move to Anfield.

Liverpool put in arguably their best performance in months yesterday when they easily beat Wolves in a match that may well have the effect of improving confidence among Anfield players a great deal, however the Merseyside club is still very much on the look out for players who can help save their season and with that in mind this source believes they are preparing bids to sign two players who could well aid that aim.
Ian Holloway has warned Liverpool off Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam but has also placed a valuation on his head by stating that offers would have to be in excess of £10m and Aston Villa appear to have problems pinning Ashley Young down and the England man has stated that he would not enter into contract talks until the summer, by which time the winger will have just a year on his current deal to go.
As well as potential moves to sign Ajax man Luis Suarez, which appears to still be very much in the balance, it seems that Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are willing to hand Kenny Dalglish and Director of Football Damien Comolli significant funds this month as they look to bring in reinforcements to improve the club’s average squad.
