Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is seriously considering a move for Blackpool winger Thomas Ince. The Telegraph says Rodgers been extensively scouting Blackpool's former Liverpool reserve Ince, who only left Anfield a year ago.

Liverpool are entitled to a 35% cut of any transfer fee for Ince, which technically means they should be able to buy him cheaper than other interested Premier League clubs. However, Blackpool will raise the asking price where Liverpool are concerned in effort to get around £5 million.

Ince is also under consideration at Manchester United, where manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been in contact with his Dad, Paul, about a move to Old Trafford.
