Liverpool reject £20m bid from West Ham for striker Danny IngsPublished August 31, 2016
Deadline day, the gift that keeps on giving.
Liverpool have reportedly rejected bids from eight Premier League clubs for striker Danny Ings, with an apparent £20m bid from West Ham United turned down this week.
The former Burnely forward is returning to full fitness after a lengthy spell on the sidelines as a result of an ACL injury he suffered in October, but has yet to make an appearances for the Reds so far this term.
Despite his lack of game time, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has firmly backed his man, and it appears as though the 24-year-old is an integral part of the Merseyside club’s plans moving forward.
According to ESPN sources, the interest was so high from one club, that they reportedly put an offer in excess of £20m on the table.
It’s understood that the club in question is West Ham United, as their desperate attempts to sign a striker continues.
It will be interesting to see whether or not the Hammers return with an improved bid, but it doesn’t look like Liverpool are too keen on parting ways with Danny Ings this summer.
Ings remains firmly part of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans for the 2016-17 season.
