Several sides are chasing the Burnley poacher…
Bottom of the table Leicester City have made a £7.5m bid for Burnley’s striker Danny Ings, according to the Daily Mail.
Foxes manager Nigel Pearson is desperate to make the vital transfer moves that can lift his side off the bottom of the table, and after being rebuffed in attempts to move for in-demand strikers Andrej Kramaric and Aleksandar Mitrovic, has turned his attention closer to home.
While Burnley are outperforming Leicester in the league, the Foxes could offer the forward a lot more money to make the switch.
The situation is complicated by the fact that the 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer, and Burnley will have to decide between selling him in January and letting him go for free in six months.
Replacing the former Bournemouth striker won’t be easy, but £7.5m is a lot of money for Burnley, and they could add quality throughout their side.
Sean Dyche discussed the player’s future this week:
“The chairmen have come out and said he’s going nowhere and I’m happy with that as a manager. We have open dialogue with him and his agent.
“The club have made it quite clear how much they value the players we’ve got and we’re in a good position cash-wise because we haven’t spent a lot of money.”
Newcastle, and more interestingly Bayern Leverkusen and Wolfsburg have also been linked with the striker.
