Anfield side move to re-capture attacking midfielder.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to bring Thomas Ince back to the Kop – just over a year after the 20-year-old was given away.
Rodgers is keen to do a deal for the young England star – son of former Anfield midfielder Paul – and is lining up a £5million offer.
Ince left Liverpool on a free transfer because he was fed up at his lack of opportunities under Rodgers’ predecessors.

Perhaps the time is right for Tom Ince to return to Anfield, now that Brendan Rodgers is moving towards a more youthful Liverpool squad which may afford him a better chance of proving himself in the Premier League.
The 20 year old has proven very successful since his move to Blackpool but the departure of Ian Holloway may well give the England Under 21 international move of a reason to leave Bloomfield Road.
Ince may well be keen on a return to the Liverpool side he represented at youth team level before playing a periphery role in the first team, making just one league cup sub appearance before he left for Blackpool.
This term Tom Ince has provided end product to go with his creative ground work, netting nine goals and providing six assists, not bad given that Blackpool are in the wrong half of the table.
Rodgers has shown a great deal of faith in a number of youngsters this term with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Suso and Andre Wisdom excelling in the Liverpool first team this term.
