New Premier League boss tipped to make double Liverpool transfer raid one of his first moves in January

Posted by

Liverpool duo Danny Ings and Marko Grujic are expected to be loan targets for new West Brom manager Alan Pardew in the January transfer window.

According to the Birmingham Mail, both players are likely to be loaned out by Jurgen Klopp this winter after struggling for playing time at Anfield so far this term.

It is not yet clear if Pardew has a concrete interest in either player, but their report suggests the incoming manager has long been an admirer of Ings in particular.

Both have been suggested as realistic targets for the Baggies, along with Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe and Crystal Palace winger Jason Puncheon.

Liverpool may not be too keen on loaning too many players out, particularly up front due to a lack of real cover in that area.

Divock Origi has already been loaned out to Wolfsburg, and Ings could prove valuable cover for Liverpool if any of Roberto Firmino or Sadio Mane pick up an injury.

Calciomercato have also recently linked Daniel Sturridge with a move to AC Milan, so Ings leaving in the same transfer window might be a little too much for the club.

Grujic, however, could do with the experience of playing regularly in the Premier League after playing just seven times in the top flight since joining Klopp’s side last season.
