Rumours are rife that Dalglish is planning a January bid of Aston Villa academy graduate Barry Bannan.
The Liverpool boss sees huge potential in the the young Scot and has have spoken to Craig Levein who has heaped praise on the player.
Bannan, a player almost thrown to the scrap heap by former Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill for being "too small", has been in and out of the Villa team for 2 years, never really nailing down a regular spot. But when given a chance to play he has often impressed with his slide rule passing and vision.
So what would it take.... £10m is the figure being touted... perhaps this is striking before the iron gets hot by Kenny, because Barry could become an a great play maker given the correct role in a team, but again he'd be buying potential and would Villa accept the fee considering his age and they know other clubs may be circling (Arsenal) if indeed they decide to sell.
Bannan is a bit of a fan splitter, you love him or hate him. So what would Liverpool fans think?
Another exciting buy for your young developing squad....
another unproven player coming in with a big fee and much to prove....
Red Indian behave. Thanks.
Regarding Bannan, I read the intelligent player aspect and it made me chuckle too. To be honest I can't see anything in this other than Bannan is Scottish and so is Dalglish. As another point, is 'intelligent' the new way to describe 'slow' players?
My thoughts entirely.
