Liverpool are close to finalising a £6million deal for Blackpool's Tom Ince after a breakthrough in negotiations.
Swansea made an enquiry for the England U21 winger Ince on Tuesday but were scared off by the asking price.
Liverpool had already lodged a £4.75million offer but Blackpool have been holding out for closer to £7million.
AC Milan, meanwhile, are the latest club to express an interest in Nuri Sahin who is on loan at Liverpool from Real Madrid. Borussia Dortmund and Inter are also keen.
