Liverpool have now been forced to make an urgent decision on Ipswich Town striker Connor Wickham as apparently Sunderland have had a £13million transfer bid accepted.

Liverpool have been keeping a close eye on the 18 year old striker who is seen as a replacement to David Ngog who ironically is linked with a move away from Liverpool to Sunderland this summer.

We have been stalling on this deal as £13million seems to be a bit too much for the striker but now that Sunderland are willing to pay that much for him, we have to decide whether to also bid with that same amount, knowing that Wickham would most likely want to join Liverpool ahead of Sunderland.

Time is of the essence here and Liverpool have to make a decision now or else Wickham may decide to join Sunderland if he feels that Liverpool do not want him badly enough.

It is highly unlikely that Ipswich are going to accept an offer less than the £13million tabled by Sunderland which puts us under pressure. Do you feel we should make a move and sign Wickham at this price?
