Liverpool are preparing to make the first move for Birmingham defender Scott Dann, according to reports.
The 24-year-old centre back has impressed in the Barclays Premier League since moving to St Andrew's back in 2009, and now Kenny Dalglish is reportedly keen to bring the player to Anfield.
A Liverpool move hinges on whether the Blues survive this season, according to the Daily Mail, with Dann set to become available should Alex McLeish's side go down.
Reputed to be one of the top earners at the Midlands outfit, the report claims Dann would be priced at £10 million is well within the Reds budget should they wish to make a move for the player.
Dalglish is known to have a number of transfer targets in mind for the summer, and Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group have vowed to back the manager financially after he committed to a three-year deal on Merseyside.
A defender, attacking midfielder, winger and striker are all thought to be on the Liverpool wish list, with Dalglish and Damien Comolli, director of football at Anfield, set for a busy summer when the transfer window reopens.
