Newcastle United should definitely sign Danny Ings.

According to The Telegraph, Newcastle United are interested in signing Danny Ings.

The Magpies reportedly face competition from a host of Premier League clubs for the Liverpool ace - worth around £20 million - but he would be a fantastic signing for Newcastle.

He might be deemed surplus to requirements at Liverpool, a team who reached the Champions League final last season and will be pushing for the title this time around, but that doesn't mean he couldn't be fantastic for Rafael Benitez at St James's Park.

The 26-year-old's career at Anfield has been blighted by two long-term injuries but this is a striker who can be lethal in the Premier League.

During the 2014-15 campaign, Ings managed 11 goals for a Burnley side that were relegated.

Their demotion into the Championship indicated that Sean Dyche had some sub-par players in his ranks, but Newcastle have far better personnel and Ings might be excellent with that kind of support.

Demba Ba remains United's most prolific goalscorer in the Premier League for quite some time after netting 16 top-flight goals during the 2011-12 season, but Ings, with the players he would be playing alongside next season, might just beat that if he joins.
