Birmingham City have set a £12 million price-tag for reported Liverpool target Scott Dann, it has been claimed.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Blues have already rebuffed a combined offer of £16 million from Stoke City for Dann and Cameron Jerome, because they value the former substantially higher.
Liverpool have been consistently linked with a move for Dann for a number of months and Birmingham's relegation to the Npower Championship is likely to hasten any proposed bid.
The 24-year-old centre-back is a Liverpool native, as well as a former Anfield season-ticket holder so, should the Reds formalise their interest, a switch to Merseyside will appeal to Dann.
Along with Liverpool and Stoke, Arsenal have also allegedly been tracking the former Coventry City defender who, despite Birmingham's plunge to the second-tier, has won a number of plaudits for some imperious displays.
Liverpool, meanwhile, appear to be closing in on Blackpool captain Charlie Adam, who has reportedly again attempted to force a transfer to Anfield.
After Liverpool had made their interest known in the Scotland midfielder during January, Adam had a transfer request rejected by the Seasiders.
However, after relegation from the Barclays Premier League, Adam is now even more keen to join Liverpool and the Blackpool Gazette suggests the 25-year-old has told his current employers as much.
