Liverpool are moving closer to the signing of Burnley striker Danny Ings, the Daily Telegraph has reported, after the Clarets were relegated from the Premier League.
Ings’ proposed move to Anfield will come when his Burnley contract expires at the end of the season and, as Ings is 22, a fee will be decided by tribunal as it is for all players under 24. The former Bournemouth striker has been at Turf Moor since a 2011 move from the Goldsands Stadium, scoring 42 goals in 128 games, including 10 in 35 this season as the Clarets battled against relegation to the Championship after a single season in the top flight.
Liverpool have faced a battle to sign Ings, it’s believed, with clubs including Real Sociedad – coached by former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes – expressing their interest. Ings is thought to have travelled to Spain to meet with Moyes and discuss a move to the Basque club, but is understood to be close to accepting an offer from Merseyside.
