St Andrew’s hero could be on his way to Anfield.
Birmingham City defender Scott Dann has been targeted by Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish as a top summer transfer.
Sky Sports reports Dalglish is keen to reshape the Reds’ defence and wants Dann to be at the heart of it.
The 24-year-old has worked his way up through the leagues with Walsall, Coventry and excelling at Birmingham City.
He has established himself as one of the best English centre-halfs in the Premier League but has been ruled out for the season following hamstring surgery.
The former England U21 player is rated by Birmingham at £9million, after spending £3.5million to bring him to St Andrew’s in 2009.
A number of clubs have Dann on their radar, most notably Manchester United and Arsenal, but Dalglish is determined to get his man.
But the new director of football Damien Comolli believes there are better options available on the continent but the Scot wants a Premier League proven player.
