Charlie Adam’s proposed transfer from Blackpool to Liverpool seems to have stepped up and extra notch according to the Blackpool Gazette. They report that Charlie Adam has held talks with the Blackpool chairman and has told him that he wants to join Liverpool.

This does not surprise me as there is no way Adam can play Championship football this coming season with his talent. He has to move back to the Premier League and he sights Liverpool as his prefered destination. As the transfer rumours have been making the rounds, Liverpool have been pegged as favourites to sign Adam ahead of Aston Villa, Tottenham and Manchester United.

It is now suggested that Blackpool may want Liverpool defender Danny Wilson to be part of the deal that takes Adam to Anfield. Before it was Jonjo Shelvey who was said to be part of the Adam deal. Either way, it is a good move if Wilson or Shelvey get the chance to go on loan to Blackpool for a full season where they can get regular first team football.

I guess the ball is now in Liverpool’s court and they have to come in with a formal bid for Adam now. I know many fans are still not convinced if Adam is the right signing Liverpool should be making as it could mean that Raul Meireles will be sold this summer.
