Liverpool are close to finalising a deal with Burnley striker Danny Ings, and will follow up his imminent transfer by attempting to sign Manchester City midfielder James Milner.

Both players will be free agents at the end of the season.

Brendan Rodgers is close to sealing his first signing of the summer – in the form of England Under-21 forward Danny Ings – who has just experienced the misery of relegation from the Premier League with the Clarets.

Liverpool Echo reporter James Pearce made the claim – via his Twitter account – that Ings is very close to swapping Turf Moor for Anfield, and that the Reds are also chasing James Milner.

Milner looks unlikely to sign a new contract with Manchester City, and the experience midfielder could be a superb steal for Liverpool – particularly with talisman Steven Gerrard leaving for the MLS in July.

Rodgers will need to seriously strengthen his squad in the summer if the Reds are to mount a title challenge next season.

With fourth-placed Manchester United beating Crystal Palace on Saturday evening, defeat to Premier League champions Chelsea on Sunday would see Liverpool’s slim chances of finishing in a Champions League qualifying spot crushed.
