Twitter has erupted with mixed reactions from fans – with some thrilled to see business underway, while others seem somewhat underwhelmed.
As the reports suggest, both players are free to open negotiations with other clubs – with their contracts with Manchester City and Burnley respectively coming to an end this summer.
Both men are capable of adding something to the side, and with minimal expenditure required to bring them to the club, they could prove astute signings.
Ings will give us another option up front, with our strikers struggling this season – whether it be through injury or a lack of quality. He is young, English, and performed superbly with recently relegated Burnley this season.
Milner is a player of proven quality, and is a regular with England. The experienced Manchester City man is a tireless worker, and what he lacks in ability, he makes up for with his work-rate.
Here are some of the best Tweets:
Ings has scored more than any other Liverpool player at relegated Burnley. He’s 22, English, and cheap. Would be a great signing for us.

“Liverpool confident £7 million will land Burnley’s Danny Ings” is the most depressing transfer headline since 2010 — Indigo (@IndigoLFC) May 23, 2015
Excellent comment on Lacazette/Liverpool story: ‘One day Lyon will want Danny Ings from us. Then they’ll be f**ked.’

Milner’s good. He is a hard working player. An intelligent b2b player. I find no reason to moan. City fans dont even want to let him go

Milner’s a good player tbh, very underrated, does a lot more than Navas — Matt Craig (@MattHDGamer) June 2, 2015
Milner is experienced, doesn’t usually go missing in big games, is good enough to play for LFC and works hard. Very good business on a free.

Big fan of Milner, but signing a player who’ll be 30 in January on a bigger contract than the one offered to Sterling is terrible business. — Matthew Stanger (@MatthewStanger) June 1, 2015
