Liverpool are interested in sealing a January deal for Blackpool skipper Charlie Adam.

According to skysports.com, the Reds are weighing up a move for the former Rangers man, who is also being courted by Aston Villa and Birmingham.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has previously stated that he remains pessimistic over Adam's future at the club and Liverpool are now being tipped to win the battle for the £4 million-rated 25-year-old.

"I said to Charlie, 'you should go to a top four/five club'. I said that to him when I signed him and that's my goal, to get him there," said Holloway. "Financially I'm not confident we can keep him because of the wages and things."

Liverpool will have the chance to run the rule over Adam at close quarters tonight as they take on the Seasiders at Bloomfield Road in search of the first win of the new Kenny Dalglish era at Anfield.

Adam has already tormented the Reds once this season after he scored the opening goal as Blackpool beat Roy Hodgson's Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield in October.

The Scotland international has been in impressive form during his debut campaign in the Premier League and could provide Liverpool with the added creativity they need in order to revive their season.

Liverpool have looked devoid of inspiration at of late and would certainly benefit from Adam's invention and eye for goal.

Dalglish is known to be an admirer of his compatriot, but whether Liverpool can win the race for his signature this month remains to be seen.
