According to the Guardian, Dannys Ings has decided to leave Liverpool this summer in a bid to play regular first team football – and Rafa Benitez looks almost certain to reignite his interest in the striker he’s made moves to sign over the last two windows.
The 25-year-old striker has had rotten luck with injuries since his move to Anfield a few years ago and, although he was fit and ready to play over the second half of last season, he was unable to break into Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Since his plans to leave were confirmed today, the Chronicle’s Chris Waugh has hinted that Newcastle could go back in for Ings this summer, confirming that Rafa made moves to sign him both in January and last this time last year.

It’d be a bit of a risk given his lack of football recently, however he could be the sort of player who may thrive under Rafa – and someone who could be affordable if Liverpool allowed him to leave on a cut-price deal.
He’s a hard worker and will be hungry to impress, so if he was able to get back to full fitness and re-find his shooting boots, he could be a vert smart signing for Newcastle this summer.
Would you take him?
