Paper Talk: Chelsea eye double deal in bid to keep Conte; Leeds want Ings

Date published: Wednesday 4th October 2017 8:29

Liverpool could be ready to offload a striker to Leeds in the January transfer window, while Chelsea will make a double swoop to keep Antonio Conte at the club, according to Wednesday’s newspapers.



Liverpool striker Danny Ings could be on his way to Leeds United in January.

The 25-year-old has endured an injury-plagued spell at Anfield since moving from Burnley in 2015, making only six Premier League appearances for the club.

Ings returned to first-team action for the first time in 11 months in September when he came on a substitute in the League Cup loss to Leicester.

But the forward is way down Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order of attackers and is being tipped by ESPN to move to Elland Road in January.

Ings has a prolific record at Championship level and scored 21 goals in 40 appearances the last time he played in England’s second tier as he steered Burnley to promotion in 2014.

At this stage it is unclear whether Leeds, who are currently fifth in the Championship table after suffering successive defeats, are looking for loan move or a permanent one.
