Liverpool fans have been demanding that the club bins Danny Ings in the summer transfer window and it would be crazy for Steven Gerrard to not look at luring the centre-forward to Rangers in the coming months.
Although the Daily Star reports that Ings, 25, earns £60,000-a-week in his deal at Anfield, it will definitely be worth Gerrard looking to raid his former club in the hopes of landing a new centre-forward.
With the Premier League season now over, Liverpool are gearing up for a Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev later this month, but that has not stopped fans from suggesting who should be offloaded in the summer.
A huge amount of Reds supporters have taken to Twitter in the past few days to suggest that Jurgen Klopp should “get rid” and “sell” the former Burnley star, whose three-year stint on Merseyside has been plagued with injuries.
Ings signed for Liverpool when his deal at Turf Moor expired in 2015, but due to a number of spells on the sidelines, the one-time England international has made just 25 appearances in all competitions for the Reds.
Klopp gave him more of a first team role towards the end of the league season when he scored in a 2-2 draw with West Brom, which showed that the striker still has some ability about him.
Ings’ ability would be more than good enough for Rangers, who may be set to welcome an influx of Liverpool players or players associated to Gerrard after the Anfield legend was appointed as the next manager at Ibrox.
Liverpool will probably be willing to loan the 25-year-old out in the summer with a view to it perhaps being made permanent in the future.
If Dave King can acquire some extra funding, there’s every chance that Ings could be a Gers player come the start of next season.
