Kenny Dalglish is closing in on his sixth signing of the transfer window with the Urugyuan defender Sebastian Coates expected to join in the next few days.

The Anfield club are in advanced negotiations with the 20-year-old Uruguyan's club Nacional over the deal. The £12m-rated centre-back was voted the tournament's best young player in Uruguay's Copa America triumph in July and would join international team-mate Luis Suarez at Anfield.
