We've said it other times today, but it really does bare repeating: The closing of this winter window has become the most hectic and unpredictable in recent memory. If you need proof beyond the Fernando Torres saga, beyond the Andy Carroll affair, consider what's happening with Charlie Adam, who had been report "highly unlikely" to move from Bloomfield Road today. Now?
I suppose if we don't have all the details, right Simon? Still, this is another head spinning turn of events and another indication that Liverpool is intent on immediately reinvesting the Fernando Torres money. While there were rumors earlier today that Reds' rivals Manchester United were in for Adam, it's Damien Camolli and Liverpool who have stepped-up to meeting Ian Holloway's asking price.
What that price is remains unclear. The best estimates have it near £12 million, with the low, dismissed end hitting £8 million. Regardless, if Liverpool is able to add Adam to the haul of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, the loss of Fernando Torres will be overwhelmed by the buzz surrounding Kenny Dalglish's reshaped side.
