Report: Danny Ings snubs Tottenham move, opens talks with Liverpool instead

Burnley

Burnley striker Danny Ings reportedly has no interest in signing for Tottenham, and will open talks with Liverpool instead.

According to The Independent, Burnley striker Danny Ings has told Tottenham he has 'no interest' in joining them - despite interest from Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Ings, 22, hit 11 goals for Burnley this season but couldn't keep them in the Premier League, leading to speculation surrounding his future.

The England Under-21 striker is out of contract this summer, though his age means that the Clarets are entitled to compensation for his services after Ings rejected a deal to stay at Turf Moor.

The Independent believe that Ings will open talks over a move to Liverpool this week, with Brendan Rodgers' men paying between £5m and £6m to sign the ex-Bournemouth star this summer.

However, the Reds aren't the only team allegedly interested in landing Ings, as the report also states that Tottenham have a persistent interest in the striker - only for Ings to tell Spurs that he has no interest in signing for them, with Liverpool his preferred destination.

Spurs certainly need to bring in at least one striker to help ease the burden on Harry Kane, with little to no contribution from Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor this season.

Ings could have helped Spurs in the final third, but it seems that a move to Liverpool on the cards for him - leaving Tottenham and manager Pochettino to consider other targets ahead of the transfer window.
