Liverpool frontrunners to sign Burnley striker Ings

Liverpool are reportedly in pole position to sign Danny Ings from Burnley.

The Liverpool Echo suggests that the Reds are the frontrunners to land the 22-year old striker in the summer transfer window.

Brendan Rodgers is planning a cleanout at Anfield at the end of the season and is almost certain to get rid of Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert.

With that a likely scenario, the Merseyside outfit will go after Clarets ace Ings who would come with a compensation fee of between £3million and £5million.

The would see a new-look strike-force of Ings and Divock Origi, who will arrive at Liverpool in the summer following his loan spell with Lille, before Daniel Sturridge returns from hip surgery.
