Liverpool have reportedly agreed an £8million deal with AZ Alkmaar for midfielder Rasmus Elm, according to The Sun.


The report claims Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish went out to Holland for a last look at the Sweden international, but he was pulled out of the match day squad due to his wife going into labour.


The Reds boss was reportedly not best pleased about Elm being absent, but that did not stop him sanctioning a deal to take the player to Anfield on a five-year contract worth £40,000 a week.


Elm is an established international and is expected to be in the Sweden squad to face England at Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine this summer.


It has been a successful season for the former Kalmar man, as he has scored on ten occasions this season in the Eredivisie playing in midfield.


Once fully completed, the Elm transfer will be Liverpool’s first of a summer where a number of personnel changes are reportedly set to take place.
