Report: Liverpool and Spurs-linked Danny Ings plans transfer talks in Spain

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

Burnley striker Danny Ings has attracted plenty of interest this season.

Burnley striker Danny Ings is said to be Spain-bound this weekend as he plans to travel to the Basque region for talks with Real Sociedad boss David Moyes, the Sun report.

The 22-year-old striker has entered the final six months of his deal with the Clarets and it looks all-but certain that his future lies away from Turf Moor.

Throughout the January transfer window, Ings was linked with both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, the Telegraph reporting that Spurs were looking to pip the Reds with a bid of around £7 million.

However, the latest reports now suggest that La Liga out Real Sociedad have jumped into pole position for his signature and a meeting has been scheduled with boss David Moyes in Spain on Saturday.

“Ings, 22, is heading out by private jet to look around northern Spain and could even sign a £60,000-a-week pre-contract. Former Manchester United boss Moyes, whose side played at Almeria last night, will give his top target the VIP treatment in a bid to seal the deal,” the report in the Sun claims.

Ings has been in wonderful form for Sean Dyche’s side this season, scoring nine goals and adding a further four assists in 22 Premier League starts.

His movement, intelligence and goal scoring ability make him a desired marksman and his terrier-like attributes could fit in well at Anfield owing to their renowned high-pressure style of play.

The Reds appear keen to sign a new striker, having seen summer recruits Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli struggle to adapt on Merseyside.

Spurs, likewise, are in need of strengthening their strike force and a potential partnership alongside fellow England hopeful Harry Kane certainly is worth considering.

However, the top-four rivals may need to take action quickly as if the report in the Sun is to be believed, a tour around San Sebastian could be enough to tempt Ings away from the Premier League for good.
