Liverpool are still negotiating a transfer fee for Burnley striker Danny Ings this summer, with the relegated club wanting £8m in compensation for the 22-year-old, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Reds have already agreed to bring in Ings on a free transfer due to the player’s contract at Turf Moor coming to an end at the end of last season, and personal terms have been finalised (via Liverpool’s official site), but the Merseysiders still have to pay a compensation fee to his old club due to the player being under the age of 23.

According to the Mirror, this deal could still go to a tribunal, which may yet invite Tottenham Hotspur to make a £12m bid for the young attacker, though Liverpool are keen to keep his price down.

Burnley themselves want this move to be finalised quickly as they start their own pre-season preparations, with the Championship side in need of new signings to help them get back to the top flight next season, and with the money from Ings’ move set to help them bring in the players they want.

Liverpool finished sixth in the league last season and have chosen to sign Ings as an upgrade on their current options up front, with players like Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini badly struggling to meet expectations, while Daniel Sturridge missed large chunks of the season through injury.
