City are said to be seriously considering swooping for Ings

With Sergio Aguero in the last year of his contract, Manchester City have for a long time been eying his replacement. Although the two parties are yet to thrash out any discussions of a new deal, news from the club alludes towards Aguero departing come the end of the ongoing season.

Failing to justify a new deal with injuries and listless performances hindering his final period at the club, Aguero is the on the anvil of exiting the Premier League side. While City have been persistently linked to Erling Haaland, the club could be turning its attention elsewhere.

With Haaland said to be extremely hard to lure away from Borussia Dortmund this season, reports from England have now linked City to Southampton’s Danny Ings. The striker is said to be on City’s radar with the club persistently monitoring his situation and performances with the club.

Liverpool To Earn 20% From Ings’ Sale

Ings who switched from Liverpool to Southampton has been a massive success for the club. The striker has scored an exceptional 54 goals in just 92 outings for the side with him the team’s top scorer for the last couple of seasons.

And a potential transfer for the striker would result in a colossal fees with Southampton bound to cash in on the player. It would leave Liverpool chuffed with Ings’ previous employers having inserted a clause which will accord them 20% of any money Southampton generate for Ings’ sale.

The money would be a massive shot in the arm to a Liverpool side currently scouring for resources. Despite FSG getting a massive injection of cash, the side is unlikely to benefit from the inflow with the club’s American owners being extremely stringy when it comes to investing in the club.

Liverpool were left shorthanded earlier in the winter as well with the club only getting enough money to move for Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies. A slew of the club’s boisterous supporters have persistently voiced their dismay and displeasure at FSG’s frugal nature.
