Burnley are reportedly hoping that striker Danny Ings, whose contract expires in the summer, joins Liverpool – rather than Real Sociedad – due to the compensation package that they will receive if he moves to an English side.
David Moyes has offered the England Under-21 international £60,000 per-week, according to the Telegraph – but if Ings opts to join an overseas outfit – the Clarets would receive a minimal compensation package of just £66,000 per-season that he is at the club.
However, a fee of around £7m is mooted if he chooses to make the switch to Anfield – and, with the forward revealing in February, according to the Mirror, that his heart is set on the Reds, Burnley could pocket a tidy amount of cash – despite Ings being a free agent at the end of the current campaign.
Burnley are entitled to compensation if he leaves Turf Moor as a result of his young age.
The 23-year-old has scored nine times in his debut season in the Premier League, and, with Liverpool’s woes up-front this term, Brendan Rodgers is keen on bolstering his attacking options – viewing the Burnley striker as the ideal signing – particularly with Raheem Sterling’s future at Anfield uncertain.
