Danny Ings has had a very difficult few years at Liverpool.
Since moving to Anfield in 2015, the former Burnley star has managed to make just 23 appearances in the senior side, spending more time sidelined by injury than he has on the pitch.
Jurgen Klopp has recently handed Ings a couple of Premier League starts as he rotates his squad between domestic games and the latter stages of the Champions League.
The 25-year-old scored his first league goal of the campaign against in the 2-2 draw with West Brom last week and started again against Stoke on Saturday – and had an absolute shocker.
Unless Klopp is going to play Ings in his natural striker position, it’s not worth playing him at all, and although he has had a major injury issues, this summer is definitely the right time for Liverpool to bin the one-time England international.
Ings, who according to the Daily Star earns £60,000-a-week, has two years left remaining on his deal and he should be able to fetch a decent fee in the summer if someone is willing to take a risk on his fitness.
His injury problems means that his Liverpool spell has been a nightmare, but there’s no room for sentiment when the Reds could battle for the Premier League title next term and Klopp has to be ruthless and get rid of the striker.
In other Liverpool news, the Reds are working on two midfield goal machine deals with one on the verge of an agreement.
