Danny Ings ready to complete Liverpool switch

Burnley striker Danny Ings looks set to join Liverpool in July, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.

The report claims that the forward, who is still only 22-years-old, is set to leave Turf Moor behind in the upcoming transfer window after the club's relegation from England's elite division was confirmed this past weekend despite the Clarets securing a 1-0 victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium. 

In fact, it was Ings who found the back of the net for Sean Dyche's side to take his tally to 10 league goals for the season. 

It appears, then, that he will remain a Premier League player for the 2015/16 season as he's set to run out of contract at Burnley at the end of the campaign. 

Liverpool in front 

And it's Liverpool who seemingly lead the race for his signature, with the report claiming that the Reds would be able to sign him for around £4 million in compensation this summer. 

In fact, despite the same report claiming that the duo of Manchester United and Real Sociedad are interested in the striker, it has been suggested that he would favour a move to Anfield as he goes about making a big move. 

Ings, of course, found the back of the net at Old Trafford earlier on in this campaign, but it's now seemingly more likely that he will end up on Merseyside in the near future. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the Liverpool hierarchy will press ahead with a move for the player as Brendan Rodgers and Co. go in search of improving the club in the attacking department. 

In need 

One thing's for sure, the Reds have endured a torrid time in attack throughout the course of the campaign, with Daniel Sturridge having failed to maintain his fitness over the course of the past nine months.

The duo of Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli, who both arrived at the club last summer, have failed to produce the goods for the Reds, so it's not entirely surprising that they're after the signature of Ings. 

And Ings may well prove quite the coup for the club as they go about major improvement ahead of next season. At the end of the day, despite his lack of experience, he has enjoyed a fine season in the Premier League at a struggling club and will only improve over the coming years. 

He certainly knows where the back of the net is and will only go from strength-to-strength under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.
