Danny Ings relishing chance of playing for Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Danny Ings admits he's overjoyed to join Liverpool and is looking forward to the challenge.

Ings signed for the Reds on a free transfer from Burnley after rejecting a new contract with the Lancashire club and will meet up with his new side for pre-season next month.

The 22-year-old is currently on international duty representing England in the Under-21s European Championship in Czech Republic and his current aim is to help the Three Lions win the tournament.

Ings will be desperate to break into Brendan Rodgers' starting XI when he arrives at Liverpool's Melwood training ground to meet up with Jordan Henderson and Co. and admits he'll work his socks off to succeed at the Merseyside outfit.

"Words can't describe the move that I've got for myself," the former Bournemouth striker was quoted by

"But, at the same time, I've worked my way up from the bottom so it's even more special for me.

"It's a challenge I'm looking forward to, I'd never get complacent with anything like that.

"Now I've got that move, I'll work even harder to try and get into that team and be the best professional I can be."

New Arrivals

Ings is one of four new arrivals who've already put pen to paper and signed for Liverpool. 

James Milner and Adam Bogdan have both signed on free transfers and 18-year-old Joe Gomez moved for £3.5 million from Charlton Athletic. 

Rodgers is certainly looking to tie-up his deals early as he desperately looks to fend off competition from other sides to secure signings. Milner, Ings and Gomez were all chased by a host of top European clubs, however, all chose to join the Reds.


There's set to plenty of imports and exports at Anfield in the next coming months and the majority of those will be in the final third of the pitch.

Liverpool will be looking to flog Mario Balotelli, who joined from AC Milan for £16.5 million last summer. The Italian arrived with plenty of baggage and Rodgers risked everything when signing him and that proved to be the case as Balotelli managed just four goals in all competitions.

Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert were rarely used by Rodgers last campaign and the former's agent has already admitted that Borini will be leaving Liverpool this summer. 

Luis Suarez's presence upfront needs replacing and Kopites are desperate to bring in a replacement. 

That will mean that a significant transfer fee will be needed to replace Suarez and that will likely be funded by the sale of Raheem Sterling, who looks poised to sign for Manchester City.

Christian Benteke has been linked to Anfield, but, the Reds are reluctant to pay Aston Villa's £32 million asking price. 

They've now reportedly turned their attention to Sevilla's Carlos Bacca.
