Blackpool and Chelsea forwards heading for Anfield.
Blackpool’s Tom Ince, 20, is set to return to Liverpool for £6million in the January transfer window. And it looks like he’s already celebrating… with a new Porsche.
Liverpool are set to be one of the most active clubs next month and they will unveil Daniel Sturridge and Ince within days of the window opening.
Sturridge is heading to Merseyside from Chelsea for around £12million, while Ince is poised to return to Anfield less than 18 months after he was allowed to join Blackpool.

Blackpool winger Tom Ince is clearly not a man who bears a grudge. The former Liverpool youngster was barely given a chance at Anfield before being shipped off to Blackpool but it the youngster appears happy to return to the Merseyside outfit, despite reported interest from Tottenham and Newcastle.
The England under-21 international is enjoying of a fine season at Bloomfield Road and already boasts 13 goals and nine assists, despite the Tangerines’ disappointing mid-table position. Ince clearly feels that under Brendan Rodgers, who is known for trusting youth, he will be given the chance to shine.
The son of England international Paul will have the seen the likes of Raheem Sterling, Suso and Andre Wisdom get a foot in the first team door on Merseyside and will be confident he can force his way into the Liverpool starting eleven sooner rather than later.
Liverpool have been strongly linked with interest in England international Daniel Sturridge since the summer and, with the former Man City man is no nearer to establishing himself in the Blues first-team under Rafa Benitez, a move away from Stamford Bridge looks on the cards.
Sturridge has started just one Premier League match this season and this lack of first team football has seen him dropped from the England set-up and the 23-year-old will not want to spend his formative years warming the bench. Sturridge will feel that Liverpool’s lack of effective attacking options will give him a chance to prove himself.
Rodgers may be ready to offer the Birmingham-born forward a slot in his preferred orthodox striking position, as opposed to the wide role he adopted under former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas. And there is compelling evidence that the speedy forward could flourish alongside the talented Uruaguayan Luis Suarez.
