Liverpool will sanction centre-forward exit after talks - report

Liverpool have agreed to sell Danny Ings this summer after holding talks with the centre-forward about his future, according to a report.

The Daily Telegraph claims that the 25-year-old wants to move away from Anfield in search of regular first-team action and has turned down the Reds’ new contract offer.

It is understood that Jurgen Klopp wanted to keep the English striker, but understands he wants to depart and the Merseyside club won’t ask for a “prohibitive fee”.

Football Insider verdict: 

Ings has been extremely unfortunate with injuries during his three-year spell with Liverpool and while he has been on the sidelines the team have taken giant strides forwards on the pitch. He was an exciting young prospect when he first arrived from Burnley and did managed to earn himself one senior England cap, but he looks a long way off that level as it stands. The striker is a popular figure with supporter, but most will accept an exit is the best thing now for the player and it will allow them to add some fresh competition for first-choice striker Roberto Firmino. Ings only managed 25 appearances across all competitions at senior level for Liverpool and scored four goals in return. He will now hope his bad luck with injuries is behind him and there is still a chance he could reignite his career elsewhere at a Premier League rival.

In the latest Liverpool transfer news, the Reds have switched their attention to a Barcelona player.
