Blackburn manager Paul Ince is ready to go back to his old club Liverpool to sign winger Jermaine Pennant, according to reports.

Blackburn: Ince weighs up Anfield raid

Ince, who is away on the club's pre-season trip to Portugal, has targeted the Anfield flyer as a direct replacement for David Bentley, who is on the verge of leaving Ewood Park for Tottenham.

Blackburn officials have sounded out their Premier League rivals with a view to making a £6million offer, although it is thought Liverpool will want a price similar to the £6.7million they paid Birmingham two years ago.
Pennant has struggled for first-team football on Merseyside, so may find the prospect of regular action at Ewood more appealing.
