According to reports on ESPN, Leeds United are lining up a January move for Liverpool striker Danny Ings, and Whites fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
ESPN says that the 25-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield following two serious injuries in his two years with the Reds following a move from Burnley in 2015, which hasrestricted him to just 12 first team appearances.
Meanwhile, the report adds that the Yorkshire outfit believe that Ings could play a key role in their bid to win promotion back to the Premier League for the first time since 2004 this season, with the club currently lying fifth in the Championship standings.
Leeds supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while some ‘would love Leeds to sign him’, others believe that “anybody is better than Lasogga” for them right now.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Not sure if Ings would fit good with us, do know only 12 games since August 15 (6 cup, 6 league) due to injury makes him a gamble. #lufc

only way I see us getting Ings is if we are going two upfront because Lasogga or Ings won't be 2nd Choice at #lufc could be a lethal duo
