Danny Ings will make a great signing for Liverpool

Ahead of this campaign, the Liverpool faithful were full of optimism as they looked ahead to what many had expected to be another strong season despite talisman man Luis Suarez having departed for bigger and better things.

Ultimately, though, the Reds endured a torrid start to the campaign, failing to provide any kind of identity; they looked a mere shadow of their former self.

But, as we all know by now, football changes with rapid pace. Now, despite a nightmare opening to the campaign, Rodgers' side are in with a great chance of securing a place in next year's Champions League, and may well bring home FA Cup silverware in Steven Gerrard's farewell season at the club. 

Transfer business 

But one thing remains: Brendan Rodgers' transfer dealings as Liverpool boss have been underwhelming to say the least.

He's certainly provided a mixed bag when recruiting new strikers: Fabio Borini, Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli have all arrived under the Rodgers regime. I think we know which forward has delivered the goods out of that quartet.

Ings is a prospect

However, the latest striker link should thrill the Liverpool support. Burnley striker Danny Ings may not be the household name that the majority at the club want to see arrive through the gates this summer, but he will no doubt prove an excellent signing for the club. 

Rodgers likes a gamble, and many will see Ings as just that, but in his debut Premier League season he has shown that he has more than enough about him to prove his credentials in England's elite division on a consistent basis.

Rumour has it that Chelsea are even interested in the forward, but it has been suggested that Ings has his heart set on a move to Merseyside. And this is great news for Rodgers as he looks to take his squad to the next level. 

We all know that the duo of Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli have failed to take their Anfield chance, so that leaves the door open for Ings to grab it with both hands.

Already a leader 

Plying his trade at Burnley, he has stepped up and become a leader for the side at the tender age of 22. 

His record for a side sitting in the bottom three of the division is excellent: nine goals and four assists have handed the Clarets a realistic chance of staying up this term. If they managed to do just that then it would prove a remarkable feat, and they would owe so much to their talisman. 

He's ready to step up to the next level, and even more incredibly for the Liverpool hierarchy is that they can land him for the small fee of £6 million. That's how much it will reportedly cost the Reds to compensate Burnley, with the player's contract on the verge of expiring. 

To sign one of England's brightest prospects for such a little sum is unheard of in the modern game; it's a deal that Rodgers must not miss out on. 

Unlike Balotelli and Co., Ings is ideal for the Rodgers system: hardworking and all-action, the talented forward will offer the Reds a little bit of everything in the attacking department of the pitch.

Alongside Sturridge, Ings could become a top, top striker, so expect the Reds chief to secure his signature sooner rather than later. What could possibly wrong?
