After the arrival of midfielder Jordan Henderson on Merseyside yesterday, Liverpool look set to act quickly in regards to their second aquisition of the summer.
Instead of replicating years gone by where valuable time has been wasted in the transfer window and opportunities for players gone missing, it seems Damien Comolli and his team are eager to press ahead in the transfer market this year.
Speculation is mounting that the next arrival at Anfield could be 18-year-old Ipswich striker Connor Wickham.
Wickham – another hot prospect in English football – is thought to be on the verge of a move to Anfield in a deal worth a total of £9million.
Wickham, along with Henderson, is included in the England Under-21 squad for the forthcoming European Championships in Denmark.
England’s campaign gets underway this Sunday evening against Spain in the group stage.
