Leicester City are reportedly keen on signing the Liverpool hitman.

According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, Leicester are 'pursuing' a move for Liverpool hitman Danny Ings, as Claude Puel looks to add more firepower to his front-line at the King Power Stadium this summer.

Ings, 25, joined Liverpool on a free transfer when his contract expired with Burnley in the summer of 2015, but he has really struggled with injuries and form during his time at Anfield thus far.

The Englishman has managed to score just four goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, but that is not to say that he doesn't still have a lot to offer at the very highest level.

And Leicester could be just the place for him to rediscover his best form.

According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, the Foxes are actively pursuing the £20 million-rated Ings.

The Liverpool forward possesses fantastic movement, and he would be the ideal strike partner for Jamie Vardy.

Whether Leicester are prepared to part with £20 million to secure his services, though, is highly doubtful, especially when his shocking injury record is taken into account.
