Sky Sports News sources understand Liverpool have renewed their interest in bringing Blackpool’s Charlie Adam to Anfield.

All eyes are on the Reds during transfer deadline day with Fernando Torres’ potential £50million move to Chelsea sparking frenzied speculation on new arrivals.

Liverpool confirmed they have had a bid, reported at £35million, accepted for Newcastle United’s Andy Carroll and it now appears that the Merseysiders are ready to use the rest of the Torres cash to bring Adam to the club.

Adam, who submitted a transfer request earlier in the January transfer window when Liverpool tabled a £4million bid for his services, was told he would not be allowed to leave the Premier League new-boys until the summer.

Sky Sports sources have revealed Liverpool have sent a car to Blackpool’s training ground but it remains to be seen whether the 25-year-old will head to Melwood in time for Monday’s 11pm deadline.

Having seemingly sold Fernando Torres to Chelsea Liverpool are clearly looking to use the money from the sale immediately and having bought Andy Carroll from Newcastle United plans are being made to strengthen Anfield’s average squad but it seems that Manchester City were unwilling to accept moves to sign England international Micah Richards, despite the fact that he is by no means a first team regular at Eastlands.

Blackpool’s moves for Andy Reid and James Beattie have left many thinking that Ian Holloway is ready to allow Charlie Adam to leave the club and with that in mind Kenny Dalglish is set to make an improved bid for the Scottish international who has already had a transfer request turned down by the Tangerines.

Liverpool’s owners will be quick to attempt to shift attention from their selling of Torres by spending the money on new additions and with just hours left to go, expect a great deal of speculation to come out of Anfield.
