Danny Ings has heart set on Liverpool

Published 21 Comments

Burnley striker Danny Ings has his heart set on a move to Liverpool this summer after rejecting interest from Spanish outfit Real Sociedad, according to the Mirror.

The report has claimed that Ings flew to Spain earlier this month to speak with David Moyes' side, however it now appears that he's set to stay in the Premier League. 

Despite Burnley's top-flight struggles, Ings has enjoyed a fine season in England's elite division, having found the net on nine occasions already this term.

And it now appears that he's set for bigger and better things, with some of the top clubs in England interested in his signature. 

Huge interest 

As well as Liverpool, the trio of Tottenham, Manchester City and Chelsea have all been linked with his services, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the clubs step up their interest in him anytime soon.

One thing's for sure, despite interest from Chelsea and Co., Brendan Rodgers's side are leading the race to land him ahead of next season. 

And the same report from the Mirror has suggested that Burnley would prefer the 22-year-old to move to another Premier League club as they could receive a compensation package of around £6 million as he's set to run out of contract this summer. 

In contrary, if Ings moved to La Liga, then Burnley would only receive around £300,000 for his services. Burnley, then, will no doubt be pleased that the striker seems to have made his mind up to stay in England's elite division, but will be desperate that he's able to score the goals to help the team survive this term. 

Right to pick Liverpool

If Ings really is set for a move to Anfield, then he's certainly making the right decision. At the end of the day, it's extremely unlikely that he would pick up a regular role at the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea, while he could prove a key man under Rodgers. 

In fact, Ings would no doubt suit the Reds' style of play and could prove a success at the Merseyside club. There's no doubt about it, at around the £6m mark, it's certainly worth the Reds boss making a move for the talented forward.
