The wheels are well and truly in motion for the transfer merry-go-round which sees the January window close in just a few days.
So far there have been the usual twists, u-turns and last-minute hitches. But the leading story which has never been very far from the headlines is the much talked about transfer of Blackpool’s prize asset Charlie Adam to Liverpool.
Clearly the player wants to leave, having handed in a transfer request at the start of the week, but the Tangerines and Ian Holloway are staying strong as they hold out for a fee that they believe Adam’s merits warrant - £12million.
Since taking over as Liverpool manager, Kenny Dalglish was quick to single out Adam, the industrious and influential midfielder as the man that he wanted to bring to Anfield.
The 25-year-old Scotland international is seen as an ideal partner for Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, with Dalglish believing they would compliment each other very well indeed.
With time on his side, Adam also fits the bill when it comes to the type and calibre of player the Reds are after as they look to the future with Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli specifically employed to recruit young and exciting new talent.
Speaking of bright young talent, Chelsea’s Gael Kakuta completed his loan switch to Fulham which could pave the way for Zoltan Gera to move north to Blackpool, which in turn could make way for Charlie Adam’s long-awaited transfer to Anfield.
