Liverpool set to finalise deal for £12m forward

Danny Ings (centre)Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have expressed their delight that a drawn-out saga looks set to reach a finale in the New Year.

The Express states the Reds have been asked to submit their case ahead of a tribunal to decide the compensation they must pay to Burnley for Danny Ings, with the Championship club looking for up to £12m.

Ings moved to Anfield in the summer following the expiration of his contract with Burnley but as the player is under the age of 24, Liverpool may pay Burnley compensation.

The two clubs had discussed this figure independently but could not reach an agreement, with Liverpool valuing the player at around £5-6m but Burnley seeking double that; claiming they had a £12m offer from Tottenham Hotspur.

A tribunal to decide the fee once and for all is set to go ahead in the New Year, with the Premier League asking both clubs to submit their cases.

Fans at the bar believe £12m is an audacious figure to pay for Ings but believe £5m is probably too small, indicating they’re happy for their club to pay a little bit more.

How much do you think Ings is truly worth? Will there be big-club bias here? Let us know in the comments below!
