Liverpool have been linked with Burnley’s Danny Ings, but does history suggest such a move should be avoided…
Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Burnley striker Danny Ings in the last 24 hours. The move has received a very mixed reaction from fans on social media, but do those questioning the move have a point?
We have signed 18 British players over the last ten years, and have ranked them in terms of their success below. Click through the list below to see if the Ings deal is one best avoided:
18) Paul Konchesky (Fulham)
The full-back was brought in by Roy Hodgson, but like his manager he barely had a chance to settle at Anfield.
17) Joe Cole (Chelsea)
The former Chelsea man was sent-off on his debut and arguably never recovered, even after a year out on loan.
16) Andy Carroll (Newcastle United)
A man that could never possibly live up to his price tag or the expectations that came along with it, he was loaned out to West Ham before eventually leaving on a permanent deal.
