Liverpool will stand firm on their £20m price tag for Danny Ings, according to the Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce.
The reporter names us as one of four teams who are interested in the 26-year-old with Crystal Palace, Southampton and Leicester City also involved in the race for the striker.
Ings has asked to leave Anfield on a permanent basis in order to get first-team football but the asking price that the Reds are looking for is very likely to put off potential suitors.
The Echo believe that Liverpool’s valuation is based on other players in the transfer market, with Fulham’s signing of Aleksandar Mitrovic for a total of £27m being cited.
With under a week to go until the transfer deadline, Ings’ price may fall as it becomes clear that no club will match the Merseyside club’s demands, but whether it will come down to a number we can afford, it’s questionable.
The club have already baulked at paying Salomon Rondon’s £16.5m release clause so a move for the Liverpool forward does seem unlikely at this stage.
