Burnley striker Danny Ings is reportedly desperate to join Premier League rivals Liverpool this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, Burnley striker Danny Ings has rejected a move to join Spanish side Real Sociedad at the end of the season - because he's desperate to join Liverpool instead.

Ings, 22, has emerged as one of the top young English strikers this season, scoring nine goals in 23 Premier League games for the Clarets.

Unsurprisingly, his exploits under Sean Dyche have attracted plenty of interest, with Tottenham recently linked with a move to take him to White Hart Lane.

Ings' contract at Turf Moor expires at the end of this season, and whilst any team team that signs him would have to pay compensation because he is under the age of 24, Ings would be free to choose whichever team he wanted.

That has even led to alleged interest from Real Sociedad, who are of course managed by former Manchester United boss David Moyes.

A move to Spain would have been a surprise, and the Mirror now report that Ings has snubbed the chance to join up with Moyes in La Liga.

Instead, Ings reportedly 'has his heart set' on a move to Anfield, and though Liverpool would be forced to cough up a £6m fee, they're willing to make it happen in a bid to improve their striking options, report the Mirror.
