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.

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