Liverpool Unwilling to Pay £9m Fee for Blackpool Midfielder Charlie Adam

Anfield side may decide to give up chase for Scottish international.

Liverpool will have to pay £9million to sign target Charlie Adam from relegated Blackpool.

Kenny Dalglish has been told the price on Scotland midfielder Adam’s head – and it is more than the Kop offered for him in the January transfer window.

The Scot is keen on Adam, but the club’s owners may be reluctant to meet Blackpool’s valuation – despite their manager’s desire to have the skillful star in his side.

Adam, who is in the last year of his contract, wants to go to Merseyside but may be facing another anxiety-filled transfer window and may be left at the seaside.

Liverpool have been pursuing Scottish international Charlie Adam for a few months now but it seems that the asking price Blackpool are demanding may well scare off interest from the Anfield side and that may lead to the 25 year old instead making a move to Aston Villa, who’s new boss Alex McLeish is reportedly very keen to land the former Rangers man.

Kenny Dalglish is known to be a fan of the talented playmaker and having seen what Adam achieved at struggling Blackpool, probably felt that the Tangerines man could offer extra creativity to Liverpool’s midfield but the valuation could prevent a move to Merseyside materialising.

Liverpool have already purchased Jordan Henderson this summer and have their eyes on a number of other prospective purchases but clearly do not have a bottomless pit of funds to work with and that is why they may opt to offload some of the club’s under performing talent to help fund further additions.

The club’s American owners have already forked out over £75m for Henderson, Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and are also looking to bring in some natural width to their attack and have been heavily linked with a move to sign Aston Villa wide man Stewart Downing.

Dalglish is ready to offload the likes of Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky, Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic and will also sell Italian international Alberto Aquilani but only if an offer in excess of £10m is made for the midfielder who spent last season on loan at Juventus.
