Manchester City join Liverpool in Danny Ings race

Manchester City are the latest club preparing a bid to sign Burnley striker Danny Ings, reports The Express.

Liverpool appeared favourites to sign the English striker after he rejected the advances of Real Sociedad late last month. But there has been a flurry of interest in the 22-year-old, leaving Ings with a big decision to make this summer.

Chelsea and Manchester United are both believed to be scouting Ings ahead of a possible bid to sign him while Tottenham are also in the mix.

A big decsion

Now Manchester City are interested, it means five out of the Premier League's top six teams are in for him.

That is the result of the Premier League's homegrown rules, with all clubs ready to pay big to make sure they fill their quota with quality players.

Ings has been brilliant for Burnley this season and compensation rules mean any club wishing to sign him would only have to pay around £6 million.

Homegrown quota

City have seen a flurry of their homegrown players leave in recent years. Gareth Barry, Adam Johnson and Joleon Lescott all left last summer while James Milner also looks set to leave when his contract expires in June.

Liverpool tried to complete a deal in the January transfer window, but Brendan Rodgers was forced to delay his plans until his summer. Ings had his heart set on a move to Anfield, but he has now got a plethora of options.

While Manchester City won't be able to offer Ings much playing time behind Sergio Aguero and Wilfried Bony, they are likely to make him the biggest offer financially.

A tough decision, but for Ings it has to be where most first team football will lie. That will be Liverpool or Tottenham. Where do you think he'll go? Give us your views in the comments box below!
