One of the longest running transfer sagas since January could finally be coming to an end this weekend. According to the Blackpool Gazette, Liverpool are set to make a new bid worth £10million in order to clinch the services of Charlie Adam.
Adam has been a target for Liverpool since the January transfer window when Blackpool refused to sell him to us. Now that they are relegated, they have very little chance of keeping him and getting him to play in the Championship.
The report goes on to suggest that Liverpool’s Director of Football Damien Comolli is scheduled to hold talks with Karl Oyston from Blackpool this weekend to thrash out a deal. Hopefully this time round, we can finalise a deal quickly without the likes of Aston Villa, Tottenham or Manchester United coming in with a late bid for Adam.
Whether £10million is a decent fee to pay for Adam, that will hopefully be a debate for next week when he would then be a Liverpool player.
