Liverpool face a fierce battle to sign highly-regarded winger Tom Ince, with reports suggesting that European heavyweight duo Inter Milan and Ajax retain an interest in acquiring his services.

21-year-old Ince, who currently represents Championship outfit Blackpool, is one of English football's brightest young talents and, as a result, has faced increasingly intense speculation as to his long-term future for several months.

During a frenetic summer transfer window, Ince was linked with a host of Premier League sides and was even reportedly close to joining Welsh outfit Cardiff before seemingly opting to stay at Bloomfield Road with the club presently managed by his father, Paul.

Rumours regarding Ince - who is reportedly valued at around £8 million - have persisted.

Liverpool, who have enjoyed a tremendous start to the 2013/14 domestic campaign, have been repeatedly linked with a potential return for their former youth product.

According to the Daily Mail, though, Brendan Rodgers' Reds could face stiff competition from the continent with Walter Mazzarri's Inter and Champions League side Ajax reportedly interested in a deal for Ince.

With his contract at Bloomfield Road set to expire following the climax of the current season, a team foreign club could snap him up for just £155,000.

If Ince were to choose to another English side, however, the Tangerines would be entitled to compensation.
