Dalglish plots £45m triple signing after Adam purchase – reports

Published Add your comment

Kenny Dalglish is targeting a winger, keeper and a left-back signing in the transfer period, after completing a deal for Charlie Adam, according to the Daily Mirror.

Stewart Downing is reportedly now Dalglish’s number one target, with Liverpool having an offer of £15 million for Downing rejected.

While Liverpool were in the mix for Downing’s former teammate Ashley Young, Manchester United were able to outbit their rivals, and Dalglish is desperate to not let the same thing happen with Downing.


Liverpool are considering raising their bid for the star, with Aston Villa reportedly insisting that Downing is worth no less than £20 million.

Dalglish is also aggressively pursuing Newcastle full-back Jose Enrique, and despite the star garnering interest from Arsenal, Liverpool are looking to sign the Spaniard to fill a long standing left-back problem at Merseyside.

Centre-half Scott Dann is also in talks with Liverpool, with the Birmingham man a boyhood Liverpool fan who grew up in Merseyside.

Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group have set a transfer policy of signing younger players with long term potential, and Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli both reportedly feel that Dann, at 24-years-old, fits this bill.

And at £10 million, Dann could be the cheapest player Dalglish purchases this summer.
