The Reds have long been linked with a move to bring in the 22-year-old, who caught the eye of a number of other top clubs in 2014/15 after an impressive campaign with relegated Burnley.

Ings managed eleven goals in 35 top flight games, following on from 21 in 40 games in the Championship the previous season after establishing himself as one of the most promising young players in English football.

Liverpool have been in need of reinforcements up front since losing Luis Suarez to Barcelona last summer, with Ings coming in to provide an upgrade on disappointing signings Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert.

This deal comes just a day after the Merseyside giants also announced an agreement to bring in England midfielder James Milner on a free transfer after the expiry of his contract at rivals Manchester City.
