The Breakdown

Ambitious move on £7.2m-rated England man would be just what the doctor ordered for Leeds

The Tavern has been active of late as Leeds fans continue to read about the possible transfers involving the club. Since Bielsa has joined, Leeds have been linked with a host of players and there’s another one they should consider. 

When you’re behind, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, and Mohamed Salah, it’s going to be quite difficult to get a game for Liverpool. The front three were outstanding last season and due their consistent performances, the likes of Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings have been spending most of the time on the bench. As a result, Sky Sports confirmed this month that the latter will be allowed to leave this summer.

The Liverpool striker has endured a tough time at Liverpool due to two serious knee injuries. His return against West Brom in April was only his second start for Jurgen Klopp and ended a 930-day wait for a Liverpool goal.

According to ESPN, Leeds had been interested in signing the former Burnley man last year and a move for Ings this summer might be a wise move.

Leeds need to strengthen their attacking options and have been heavily linked with a move for Derby striker, Matej Vydra. While the Championship’s top goal scorer would be a superb signing, the Lily Whites should still consider a move for Ings who may be available for a cut-price fee.

A loan move for the forward may not be the best option for the Yorkshire club considering Ings’ likely high wages but signing a player who scored 32 goals in 75 league games for Burnley, would signal Leeds’ intent for the upcoming season.

So Leeds fans, should the club try to sign Danny Ings?
