Liverpool are interested in a deal to bring Burnley striker Danny Ings to the club. The plan is to loan him back to Burnley until the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.
Ings is in the last six months of his deal at Burnley, and has been linked with moves to Spurs as well as David Moyes Real Sociedad. He has managed 7 goals this season in 19 games, following 21 in the Championship last campaign.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a new striker after Mario Balotelli has yet to register in the league , and with Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert hitting the net only once and twice respectively.
Daniel Sturridge is set to make the matchday squad for the first time since August tomorrow against West Ham at Anfield. Burnley paid Bournemouth £1m for Ings in 2011, and would demand a inflated price for the striker to arrive this month, as he is pivotal to their potential stay in the Premier League.
