Liverpool fans react to reports Danny Ings could be Manchester City-bound

Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to reports that Manchester City are in a ‘strong position’ to sign Danny Ings this summer.

Ings, 28, enjoyed a three-year spell on Merseyside before being sold to Southampton on a permanent deal back in 2019.

He clocked up just 25 appearances for Liverpool, but has gone from strength to strength on the South Coast – and City are now determined to make Ings the natural successor to the club’s all-time top goalscorer, Sergio Aguero.

This comes from Sky Sports. They claim that Ings has been identified as a more attainable target to Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Ings, who is about to enter into the final year of his St Mary’s contract, could be available this summer for a cut-price fee, with Southampton’s bargaining powers severely reduced.

Having finished last season as the Premier League’s joint-second goalscorer with 22 goals, there is no doubt that Ings would make champions-elect City a much more dangerous side next term.

Seeing him join the Etihad Stadium would hurt Liverpool, too, given he was once a Jurgen Klopp favourite, but the Reds could still benefit from a financial standpoint.

According to The Mirror, Anfield bosses inserted a 20 per cent sell-on clause into Ings’ £20 million deal to join Southampton two years ago.

This means that Liverpool are guaranteed a financial boost if Ralph Hasenhuttl cashes in on the three-time England international this summer.
