Why Newcastle should go all out to sign this reported attacking target in January

Newcastle United should do everything in their power to sign Burnley's Danny Ings.

Newcastle United should go all out to sign Burnley's Danny Ings in January, as his arrival could create another memorable strike-partnership for the side to build around for the years to come.

Ings is reportedly on Alan Pardew's wishlist for the January transfer window and he could be the most important addition the side have made in years.

Newcastle have been famed for the quality of some of their strikers, with the likes of Andy Cole, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen and Les Ferdinand having representing the Mapgies during their playing careers.

They have not had an exciting front-pairing for some time, though, and Ings's addition could create front-two the club could build around for a considerable amount of time. 

Although Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse threatened to become an iconic pairing, neither had much longevity to their good form at St. James' Park.

Ings is still at an early stage of his career, though, and would likely progress considerably in the North East. 

He also has all the attributes to perfectly complement their current striker Ayoze Perez. 

Perez, similarly to Ings, is just starting to adapt to life at the top-level of English football, but he is showing all the signs he is capable of doing so. 

A clinical finisher, with great pace, he looks a real goalscorer and has established himself as a fans' favourite. 

Ings, too, has proven that he is able to score goals in the top-flight and having the pairing up-front would be a tantalising prospect for Newcastle fans. 

Ings has hit the back of the net four times already this season and with him and Perez their team would carry a far greater goal-threat. 

The 22-year-old is reportedly available at a cut-price in January because of his reluctance to sign a new deal at Burnley and Pardew would be wise to ensure that he snaps him up then as he could make a huge impact on Tyneside.
