Goodison Park side target unwanted Anfield man.
Liverpool will sell Charlie Adam for a knockdown £5million – and Everton boss David Moyes is poised to make a sensational move for him.
Scotland midfielder Adam is being offered around behind the scenes because he will not be a starter under new Kop boss Brendan Rodgers, just a year after predecessor Kenny Dalglish bought him from Blackpool for £9m.
The fee is being flashed to other clubs and Moyes is keen to land the midfield maestro at the second attempt.
Moyes wanted his fellow Scot before he was priced out of his range and still rates the former Rangers schemer highly – although he is looking into the potential pitfalls of buying Adam.
It is very rare for a Liverpool player to be sold directly to Everton – Gary Ablett was the last, 20 years ago – and it would be a major issue for any deal.

Even after the sale of Alberto Aquilani to Fiorentina Liverpool have a fair few central midfield options and apparently Brendan Rodgers is ready to offload Charlie Adam as he continues to put his stamp on the Anfield squad he inherited from Kenny Dalglish.
Thus far as well as the sale of the aforementioned Aquilani the former Swansea City boss has also offloaded many of the club’s old guard with Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy leaving for Newell’s Old Boys, Fenerbahce and Cardiff City respectively.
Charlie Adam did not have as bad a debut season as some would suggest, the former Blackpool man may well have failed to register very often in the goal’s column but the Scottish international did finish the last campaign as the club’s top Premier League assist maker by some distance.
Clearly the arrival of Joe Allen would have implications for Adam and his first team chances and factor in the likes of Steven Gerrard, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson as players likely to also fight for a spot in Rodgers’ first team for the coming season.
Moyes may well see Adam as a much needed creative midfield option having lost key players Tim Cahill and Jack Rodwell this summer.
