Liverpool striker Danny Ings is attracting interest as he considers he future.
The English forward is likely to find himself on the periphery of the first-team again next season as Jurgen Klopp reshuffles his attacking options in search of a Premier League title challenge.
Ings managed to get himself a fairly regular spot on the bench in the second half of last season after returning to full fitness following some serious injuries.
But he is unlikely to be able to improve his role in the squad next season thanks to the emergence of Rhian Brewster and expected development of Dominic Solanke.
The former Chelsea striker appeared to seal his place ahead of Ings in the pecking order by being handed a place on the bench in the Champions League final loss against Real Madrid.
Brewster, who is set to sign a new long-term contract with the club, is likely to be given the opportunities that may well have gone Ings’ way last season.
So the former Burnley man could well decide to call it quits at Anfield this Summer and head off to another club in search of more regular game time after three seasons of minimal action.
And ex-Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson, who is currently in charge of Crystal Palace, is reported to be interested in signing his compatriot according to a report by the Echo.
It could make a lot of sense for Ings to leave Anfield and seek more regular game time as it would not only increase his chances of playing, but could see him make a genuine claim to be a member of Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
Another former Liverpool manager in the shape of Rafa Benitez is also said to be keen to lure Ings away from Anfield and would no doubt offer him more opportunities to start in his Newcastle United side.
Other interest is likely to come from Southampton, Bournemouth and Burnley in the striker – so he won’t be short of options if he does decide to move on.
