The Telegraph has reported that former-Liverpool FC and current Southampton striker Danny Ings is angling for a transfer to a Champions League club. The English international has bagged 40 goals in 81 games for the Saints since his initial loan move there and has re-established himself as one of the more dependable strikers in the English top-flight following an injury-plagued stint at Merseyside. With 18 months left on his deal, Ings is reluctant to put pen to paper on a new deal and become Southampton’s highest-paid player and is instead looking to move to a Champions League club. The club he’s most interested in is Tottenham Hotspur, who aren’t in the Champions League this season but could very well return... glances nervously at Liverpool’s position in the table
I suppose Liverpool could very well be in the running for Ings if Spurs don’t make it back to the Champions League (though his age would be a point of contention), but that’s beside the point. The report mentions that Liverpool will get a percentage of any sale that Southampton makes. No one knows how much that percentage could be... but money is money, and I doubt the club will complain about any form of cash influx. It sure could come in handy for a squad that’s looking like it needs fresh faces at the moment.
