Wantaway Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam will become the subject of a summer transfer bid from Liverpool according to the Guardian.
The 25-year-old Scotland international has made his intentions clear that he wants to remain in the Barclays Premier League following the Tangerines relegation from the top-flight last month.
Adam was a standout performer in manager Ian Holloway's side last season, with his scintillating displays attracting plenty of attention from potential suitors who made bids in the January transfer window.
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was one of those admirers who attempted to bring Adam to Anfield with a deadline day bid of £12million, only for the offer to be knocked back by Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston.
But following the Seasiders relegation, the Championship outfit will now struggle to coax such a fee, and will likely settle for something in the region of £8million.
With a deal reportedly agreed between Liverpool and Sunderland for the services of central midfielder Jordan Henderson to complete a move to Anfield this summer, the Reds want to strengthen that department even further with the addition of the highly rated playmaker .
Adam would provide extra spark and creativity with a view to servicing Liverpool's attacking prowess of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.
However, they may face competition for his signature from Tottenham Hotspur, another of Adam's mid-season attractions.
But reports suggest that Anfield remains the player's preferred destination, particularly after the confirmed appointment of fellow compatriot Dalglish in the Liverpool hotseat.
