With Newcastle United in the need for a new striker this summer to fire in the English Premier League goals they need, a striker that has the necessary pedigree is set to be on the market during the summer transfer window.
As reported by Sky Sports, Danny Ings will be seeking a move away from Anfield ahead of next season, looking for more first team football than what is currently on offer to him in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
The outlet say that Liverpool are not seeking a large transfer fee for the player, who has two years left on his contract at the club.
That opens the door for a canny side to potentially make a budget move for a hungry striker this summer.
Should Newcastle United be one of the teams in the race for his signature?
With just 39 goals across the 2017/18 season, Newcastle demonstrated that despite their 10th placed finish, they need a significant firepower upgrade if they are to maintain their position or improve next term.
Danny Ings may have struggled significantly with injuries over the last few seasons, but has proven himself to be a double-figure top-flight goalscorer in the past. He also offers the kind of physical threat that could be vital for the Magpies in hard fought, close matches.
With Liverpool reportedly not looking for a large fee, there is little risk attached to his signing, which suits Newcastle financially too considering they may not have the greatest resources available.
