Selling Danny Ings will go someway to repaying Alisson fee

Selling Danny Ings will go someway to repaying Alisson fee

After a summer of heavy spending, Liverpool could do with selling off some squad players in order to pay back some of the lavish fees they’d paid. 

So far this summer, Liverpool have spent £163.98 million on Shaqiri, Alisson, Fabinho and Naby Keita according to Transfermarkt.

With those four signings, it’s likely that Liverpool will improve upon their fourth-place finish and seriously challenge City for the title.

However, with expensive new signings also comes the need to sell off some squad players in order to recover some of the club’s expenditure.

With that in mind, the Leicester Mercury is reporting that Leicester City are keen on signing Danny Ings and are willing to pay £20 million for the striker.

The Breakdown

Joining Liverpool in 2015 from Burnley, Ings’ career has been blighted by Injury, meaning that the forward has struggled to play many games for the Merseyside club. Last season, Ings managed to make eight appearances in the league, the highest amount he’s made since his Burnley days.

According to Transfermarkt, Ings missed 85 games while at Liverpool and due to that, it seems wise to sell the 26-year-old.

From Leicester’s perspective, any price for the striker would hinge massively on whether he is fully fit. Moreover, with Slimani, Vardy, Okazaki and Iheanacho at the club, Leicester’s need for a forward isn’t desperate.

If Liverpool can get a bid close the £30 million quoted in the report, the club would be getting a good amount for a player who’s never been able to showcase his talent.
