Liverpool have reportedly agreed fees with Chelsea and Blackpool for the respective signings of Daniel Sturridge and Thomas Ince during the January transfer window.

According to The Times, Liverpool will pay £12 million to Chelsea for the signature of Sturridge, while a deal worth £6 million will bring Ince to Anfield when the transfer window opens.

Sturridge will reportedly travel to Liverpool on Wednesday to undergo his medical, and a completed transfer from Chelsea is expected to be announced in the first few days of January.

The 23-year-old has played only five times the Premier League for Chelsea this season and will come to Liverpool to relieve the goalscoring burden on Luis Suarez, who has found the net 13 times this season.

Sturridge, who joined Chelsea from Manchester City in 2009, is reported to be about to agree a contract worth £60,000-a-week - while Ince is likely to put pen to paper on a £25,000-a-week deal.

Ince, 20, is a product of the Liverpool academy and was sold to Blackpool for £250,000 only 18 months ago, but a swoop to bring him back to Anfield is proof of how much he has flourished at Bloomfield Road.

The England under-21 winger has scored 13 times in the Championship this season, and has also been the subject of interest from Tottenham and Newcastle.
