Manager Brendan Rodgers has been keen to re-sign Ince and bring him back to Anfield 18 months after the previously regime at the club allowed the youth system product to sign for Blackpool for around £250,000.
The England under-21 international has impressed in the Championship for Blackpool and his stock continued to rise at the weekend when he found the net twice in a victory at Wolves to take his tally to 15 goals for the season.
But his return to Liverpool stalled after the initial £6million asking price continued to rise. The stumbling block to the move was the fact Liverpool are entitled to a percentage of the transfer fee due to a sell-on clause, which they would be paying to themselves.
And, according to the Sunday People, Premier League strugglers Reading are set to snatch the 20-year-old midfielder, the son of former England star Paul Ince, from under the noses of Liverpool after agreeing to meet Blackpool’s £8million valuation.
