Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will have to fight off competition from Spanish club Real Sociedad and Premiership rivals Tottenham for the signature of Burnley striker Danny Ings.
It has been reported today that Rodgers is looking to sign the forward this month before loaning him back to Turf Moor for the rest of the season.
Former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes is now in charge of La Liga side Sociedad and has already been to watch the twenty-two year old in action this season.
Ings, an England U21 international, is out of contract in the Summer, but Burnley would still be entitled to a tribunal fee should he decide to leave on a Bosman free at the end of the season.
That is an advantage for the Spanish side, however, as the rules would dictate that they would only have to stump up around £300,000 for the striker – whereas Liverpool or Spurs would have to pay around £3m for his services.
And Rodgers is looking to steal a march on the other club by signing Ings this month and then letting him stay at Burnley to aid their relegation fight for the remainder of the season.
