SkySports.com is reporting that Liverpool have identified Birmingham centre-back Scott Dann as the next signing the club will make this summer. With all of Liverpool’s spending thus far this summer, still no defender has been signed yet which is hard to believe as going into the summer Liverpool had targeted a new left-back and centre-back as top priorities.
With the new season about to start, it would be ideal to get any dealings sorted out soon so that new signings have some time to work with the current players before the big kick-off.
Dann has been a target for many Premier League clubs this summer and it is inevitable that he will leaving Birmingham this summer as he is too good to be playing in the Championship. Some Liverpool fans do not think we need to sign a new centre-back as Carragher, Agger, Skrtel and Soto will be good enough.
Ex-Liverpool manager, Roy Evans, seems to think that Liverpool still need to sign a new centre -back.
If Liverpool are to go into the market to get a new centre-back, is Scott Dann the right person? He certainly fits the bill FSG have set out in recruiting new talent for the club: Dann is still only 24-years-old and he is English with Premier League experience. He was arguably Birmingham’s best player last season until he got injured and his injury is thought to be the reason Birmingham got relegated.
Birmingham are valuing Dann at around £10million. I have given up trying to reason the values of players this summer. In my opinion, £10million is too much to spend on Dann but then again Bolton’s Gary Cahill is being valued at £17million and Arsenal had a £10million for Everton’s Phil Jagielka rejected.
Liverpool are not the only club keeping tabs on Dann, it is being reported that Arsenal are also interested in him but hopefully if we are to bid for him he would join Liverpool as he is a Scouser.
Do you think Dann would be a good signing for Liverpool?
