Danny Ings could cost Liverpool millions this summer

The Reds need to raise funds this summer. Liverpool are in dire need of reinforcements and FSG have always operated on a sell-to-buy budget whilst in charge of the club. When funds are so scarce, Danny Ings could cost Liverpool millions this summer.

Danny Ings at Liverpool

Liverpool signed Danny Ings in 2015.

The talented striker arrived on a free transfer from Burnley with a fee later agreed by tribunal.

Unfortunately the forward struggled with injuries during his time at Anfield and only managed 25 appearances in all competitions during three seasons with the club.

Eventually he was sold to Southampton for a fee of £20m which included a 20% sell-on clause.

Ings rejects Southampton deal

There has been a twist in the tale.

According to Sky Sports, Danny Ings has rejected a new contract offer at Southampton.

The forward is said to be looking to compete with the best, aiming to win trophies during his career.

This summer he enters the final year of his deal at Southampton, forcing the Saints to make a decision on his future.

Liverpool financial blow

Ings was always going to head back to a top club.

Unfortunately for Liverpool he could do so on a free transfer.

Given the 20% sell-on clause in his sale this could cost the Reds millions.

Sky claimed previously that Man CIty were considering a move for the electric forward.

If Pep Guardiola’s side nabbed him then we could count on a sizeable chunk of cash coming in.

His leaving on a free transfer would prove a big disappointment…unless we signed him.
