Ince Wants Sebastian Larsson
New Blackburn manager Paul Ince is plotting a £4.5million move for relegated Birmingham City's Sebastian Larsson as a replacement for wantaway winger David Bentley.
With bentley seemingly on the cusp of leaving, Ince has been lining up replacements... and Larsson is top of the list.
Ince has slapped a £17m price tag on Bentley and will use the cash from the transfer to reinvest in the team. Birmingham are expecting about £5 million for one of their main assets, to me this represents great value.
City manager Alex McLeish is desperate for Larsson to stay at the Championship club and help them bounce back to the top tier of English Football at the first attempt.
However a source close to Larsson said last night: 'His agent has made it clear to Birmingham that he wants to be in the Premier League next season and there are four or five clubs interested in him.'
Get him in. Great quality and at a third of the money we'll get for Bentley. Make it happen Incey.
