Danny Ings will reportedly join Liverpool at the end of the season after the Reds won the race for his signature. The 22-year old English striker, who has played for the England U-21 side, is set to be out of contract at Burnley and has opted to move to Anfield.
The striker has shown solid movement and goal-scoring instincts in the Premier League so far and as the theory goes, could benefit from a better surrounding cast. Or at least that’s what Liverpool fans are desperately telling themselves today with news emerging from a number of journalists with ties to the club that the Reds’ interest in Ings is very much real and he is likely to become Liverpool’s first signing for the first team this summer. Ings has been a stand out performer for most part of the season for the already relegated Burnley, with 10 goals and 4 assists to his name.
Real Sociedad boss David Moyes had wanted to take Ings to Spain, while Manchester United and neighbors Manchester City, Germany’s Schalke and Dutch side Ajax have also scouted him, but the striker has chosen Liverpool according to the latest reports.
The relegated Clarets could receive compensation of £3million to £5million for Ings,
