Liverpool have contacted Blackpool to renewed their interest in starlet Tom Ince after their pursuit of Porto’s Christian Atsu stalled, according to

The report claims that Cardiff and Swansea are in for the talented winger but a move to Liverpool would be a hugely tempting prospect for the 21-year-old and the Reds have now been in touch with Blackpool to inform them of their interest with the promise of notifying the Championship outfit later this week whether they will active his £8m release clause.
