Liverpool have been clever operators in the transfer market in recent years. Michael Edwards has earned a reputation as one of the best recruiters in the game, his wheeling and dealing helping to assemble a world feared squad for a snip. An old deal could come good soon, Liverpool will receive a cash injection should Man City sign reported target Danny Ings.
Danny Ings at Liverpool
Liverpool signed Danny Ings on a free transfer back in 2015.
It wasn’t until 2016 that the compensation saga was resolved and the Reds were ordered to pay around £6.5m for the striker.
In October 2015, in his first training session with Jürgen Klopp, the forward suffered an ACL injury which ruled him out of the rest of the season.
A year later the forward was struck down by another knee injury.
In 2018 Southampton bought Ings for a reported fee of £20m.
The deal included a 20% sell on clause should the Saints cash in on the striker.
Man City interest in Danny Ings
Sergio Aguero’s contract expires this summer and there is yet to be any movement over a new deal.
PSG are said to be keen on the forward and Pep Guardiola’s side are thought to be considering replacements.
According to The Athletic, Man City are interested in Danny Ings at Southampton.
The England striker has been impressing at the Saints now that he has been able to stay fit.
Should Man City move for Ings then Liverpool will receive a cash injection from their sell on clause.
Given that money is tight at Anfield at the moment due to the financial impact of the pandemic this could be a huge boost.
Any sum would be more than welcome, if Southampton manage to make a profit on the striker then we’d be in for a tidy windfall.
