Welsh club keen to strenghten in midfield.
Cardiff are preparing to splash the cash as they look to build a side capable of staying in the Premier League according to The Daily Mail.
The Welsh side are gearing up for their first ever season in the Premier League and know as one of the promoted sides that they will be amongst the favourites to be relegated.
But Malky Mackay’s men are hoping to bring in some quality out wide by meeting Blackpool’s £8 million asking price for Tom Ince.
Ince has been highly impressive for Blackpool over the last year and has been attracting the attention of a number of top sides.
Liverpool were thought to be close to securing his signature during the January transfer window, only for a deal to break down as the two clubs could not agree a transfer fee.
It is thought that Brendan Rodgers’ men continue to have first refusal on Ince’s signature but there is some dispute about whether or not that includes the fee Blackpool owe to Liverpool for bringing him to the coast in 2011.
Meanwhile, Cardiff and bitter rivals Swansea are thought to be preparing to go head to head for Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis. The French side have slapped an £8.5 million asking price on the French international.
