Liverpool forward Danny Ings has reportedly attracted interested from Newcastle, with the Magpies also keen to get a deal for Chelsea winger Kenedy over the line in the near future.

This is according to the Telegraph, who state that Rafael Benitez’s side are interested in the England international, with the club also eager to bring in Kenedy next week, a deal they report has been in place since the summer transfer window.

The news outlet are also reporting that Ings has implied that he wants to stay with the Reds and compete for a starting place, however it doesn’t seem likely that he will at this point in time, giving how much quality the Merseyside club have in attack.

Since arriving on Merseyside from Burnley in the summer of 2015, Ings has endured a torrid time with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Since his arrival more than two years ago, the England international has only been able to make 14 appearances for the Reds, scoring three goals in that time.

One of the main reasons Ings’ Liverpool career hasn’t gone to plan is due to injury, as since his arrival, the striker has missed a total of 85 games, an awfully high amount.

The same can also be said for Chelsea winger Kenedy, who since his arrival from Fluminense, has only made 25 appearances for the Blues, in the two and a half years he’s been with the club.
