Danny Ings is edging ever closer to securing a valuable January loan move as he seeks a return to competitive first-team action.
The Liverpool striker has plied his trade for the club’s U23s so far this season as part of his cautious return to full fitness.
Since signing from Burnley in 2015, Ings has suffered season-ending injuries to both knees and subsequently only managed 12 senior appearances.
Having rediscovered his form under U23s boss Neil Critchley, the 25-year-old now looks ready to take the next significant stride on his route back to regular Premier League football.
With that in mind, Liverpool are seemingly keen on sending Ings out on a temporary deal when the transfer window opens at the start of next year.
Both West Ham and Crystal Palace are keen on signing Ings, according to the Mirror, with the struggling clubs eager to bolster their attacking options.
A move to relegation-threatened teams could prove to be a useful option in terms of assuring Ings of plenty of much-needed game time.
West Ham have looked desperately short of goals this season, not to mention the level of intensity and competitiveness that Ings promises to inject into any team.
Palace would similarly welcome an industrious goalscorer capable of stretching defences and putting his side on the front foot.
Any of the bottom half clubs in England’s top flight would be extremely lucky to have a man of Ings’ work ethic, commitment and conviction at their disposal.
