Liverpool losing ground on Arsenal in Dann transfer battle

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is losing his battle with Arsenal for Birmingham City defender Scott Dann.

The Telegraph says Dalglish has already lavished £16 million on Jordan Henderson and is expected to lodge a formal offer of around £9 million with Blackpool for their captain in the next 48 hours. Adam is known to be keen to move to Anfield and formal talks with the Bloomfield Road are expected to start on Thursday.

But the Liverpool manager faces a more complicated task in attempting to recruit the defensive cover he believes his squad requires, with Dalglish weighing up the merits of moving for Dann, a boyhood Liverpool fan, with the risks of missing out on a second defensive target in a week.

Despite his childhood allegiance to Anfield, it is believed Dann is tempted by the prospect of Champions League football on offer at the Emirates, while Wenger believes he offers better value for money than Bolton's Gary Cahill and the same technical accomplishment.
