Dalglish readies bid for £8m Liverpudlian – report

Published Add your comment

Kenny Dalglish is readying an £8 million bid for Birmingham centre-back Scott Dann, according to The Sun.

Dann starred for Birmingham last season, and after the club were relegated, the 24-year-old has been set for an exit to another English club.


Arsenal and Liverpool both emerged as favourites to sign the star, but with Arsenal reluctant to fork out the high fee for Dann, Liverpool have taken the front line and The Sun believes that Dalglish is ready to make an official offer.

Chris Hughton recently told reporters that no offers had been made for Dann, but the Birmingham manager was reigned to something happening before deadline day.

“Whether Scott will be with us after the deadline, I don't know,” Hughton said.

Liverpool have also been connected to Gary Cahill and Sebastian Coates, but the Merseyside club are now reportedly in the winning position to land Dann, who grew up in Liverpool.

Soto Kyrgiakos left the Reds to move to Wolfsburg yesterday, leaving a space open for another defender to come onboard.
