Danny Ings is so desperate to get started with his Liverpool career that he’s willing to sacrifice his already shortened summer break in order to ensure that he makes a good impression.

BBC Sport confirm Roberto Firmino’s transfer fee and contract details
The 22-year-old, who is one of five new arrivals at Anfield so far this summer, will officially join us at the start of next month when his contract with Burnley expires.
He’s currently with the England Under-21 side, who are taking part in the European Championships in the Czech Republic. According to the Daily Mail, we were planning on giving him a three week break following his participation in the tournament, but Ings wants to cut that period short.
“I will be raring to go so I will probably only have two [weeks] and join up with them on tour because I don’t want to be playing catch-up,” Ings said.
“I would prefer to be around the squad and ready to go for the start of the season.”
The Three Lions have played twice in the competition thus far – losing 1-0 to Portugal before beating Sweden by the same scoreline. They face Italy later tonight knowing that a win will guarantee their qualification to the last four.
Despite not scoring in the tournament thus far, Ings has enjoyed his time with Gareth Southgate’s side, finding the net on four occasions in 12 appearances.
