No Liverpool player has had it harder than Danny Ings over the past two seasons.
Two terrible injuries, one to each knee, have decimated his Anfield career and to date, since signing in 2015, he’s made just six Premier League appearances.
But because of his wonderful attitude and the manner in which he’s carried himself while on the sidelines, Liverpool will not be entertaining offers for his services this summer.
That’s according to Dominic King in the Daily Mail, who claims Ings is ready to fight tooth and nail for a place in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team recognition.
Ings did excellently last pre-season, scoring a hatful, but when 2016/17 began he barely made the match-day 18, and with numerous offensive new signings expected, his task has only got trickier…
If he were to become a starting forward for Liverpool; topping goal-charts – it would be considered one of the greatest individual comebacks in the club’s history – but the odds are stacked against him.
Despite King’s claims, we think it’d be beneficial for Ings to at least go out on loan to a Premier League club. That way, he can get the first-team football he craves. Under Klopp, with Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and an expected new signing ahead of him in the pecking order, it doesn’t seem likely.
