Danny Ings: Striker joined Liverpool after Burnley deal expired

Liverpool may be forced to pay over £10million for Danny Ings if Burnley can prove Tottenham were offering a similar fee.

Ings moved to Anfield in the summer on a free transfer after his Burnley contract expired – but the Clarets are entitled to compensation as he is under the age of 24.

A tribunal will determine the amount in the new year if the two clubs cannot agree a fee beforehand.

If a tribunal is forced then Burnley will use Spurs’ persuit of the striker in an attempt to push the compensation to higher than the £6million the Reds reportedly want to pay.

It is understood the North London club were willing to pay between £10-12million for the England international, and if this interest can be “substantiated”, then Liverpool may have to pay a similar figure.

The current record for the amount set by a tribunal stands at the £6.5million Chelsea had to pay Manchester City for Daniel Sturridge.

Ings is currently injured and is unlikely to play again this season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.
