Mirror Football is reporting that Liverpool are ready to re-sign the man they let go for £250,000, Thomas Ince, in the January transfer window.
Ince left Anfield for Blackpool 18 months ago and since then has put in some superb performances and is regarded as one of the most exciting young English talents around.
He has made appearances for England under-21s and nearly secured promotion to the English Premier League with Blackpool last campaign, but lost in the play-off final to West Ham United.
Thomas, son of former Liverpool legend Paul, left Merseyside to try and get himself some first-team football as he was not happy to play for reserve and youth teams.
Now, Brendan Rodgers is ready to splash out £6 million on the Englishman, which would be a rather costly bit of business from the Reds as they would pay £5.75 million more than what they sold him for back in 2011.
However, they do receive 35% of whatever fee Ince is sold for, which mean they would only really have to pay around the £4 million mark to land his services.
If Rodgers is prepared to take this risk, then he clearly rates the Blackpool man highly and believes he can be a big member of the squad.
