Liverpool are confident of finalising a £6million deal for Blackpool's Tom Ince and will look to add Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge for a further £12m.
Arsenal's reluctance to sell Theo Walcott in January, regardless of his contract negotiations, will delay any possible move from Liverpool until the summer, although the player may yet receive offers from elsewhere with Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester City keen.
Ince, 20, has 18 months left on his contract. He has attracted attention from other clubs but Liverpool are willing to pay the asking price.
