The 22-year-old has enjoyed an impressive debut season in the Premier League, netting nine times, and it comes as little surprise that a host of clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly interested in his signature.
Ings' arrival would surely spell the departure of either Radamel Falcao or Robin van Persie, both of whom have been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.
|Goals Scored||Minutes per Goal||Total Shots per Game||Shot Accuracy (%)||Conversion Rate (%)||Total Passes per Game||Pass Completion (%)||Key Passes per Game||Appearances||Minutes Played|
|Robin van Persie||10||208.5||2.88||49||13||20.81||86||1.04||26||2,085|
The goals may have dried up for the Burnley man of late, yet he still boasts some impressive figures. He has scored less regularly than Van Persie and Falcao this term, while hitting the target from fewer of his attempts. However, it is easy to forget that he is playing for bottom-placed Burnley, where the service is nowhere near as prolific.
In terms of the statistics, he actually shows some surprising similarities with Van Persie. Despite his pass success rate being significantly lower than the Dutchman's (72% to 86%), he makes an almost identical number of attempts to find a team-mate in each appearance. Meanwhile, the duo have created as many chances as one another - averaging just over one key pass on average.
Danny Ings would represent a gamble, there is no doubt about that. However, the Englishman has shown his ability to unlock Premier League defences throughout his debut top-flight season. For a minuscule fee - unlike those who have come before him - he can arrive at Old Trafford under minimal pressure, which could create the perfect setting for a prolific Manchester United career.
