Leeds have today been linked with Liverpool striker Danny Ings with the striker needing to get out and play games after a horrible string of long-term injuries. The striker is top quality at Championship level and the links have come with Leeds 5th in the league.
The striker has been linked in the media which is very rare at this stage of the season so it is perhaps a situation where Leeds are now monitoring the situation as the player looks to come back and re-start his career that was once so promising. The English striker made a name for himself getting out of the Championship with Burnley and then scoring goals in the top-level before earning a move to Liverpool with many of the big sides chasing his signature. Burnley had to let him go on a free transfer but Liverpool were made to pay over £10 million at a tribunal a few months later, similar to what Burnley have now done with Charlie Taylor from Leeds.
Ings will want to get back and start playing but there is no doubt that he will take months to get back up to full speed again after such a stop-start few years at Liverpool. If the striker was to find his best form again he will be knocking on the door at Anfield with his ability but getting to that stage will take time and effort, something that Leeds may feel we can give him. He would certainly command a starting place as he got fit and Leeds have only got Pierre-Michel Lasogga as a striker who looks like he will be hitting the back of the net for the time being, although others are chipping in from various positions.
