As per one of the major whispers circling around of late, Scottish champions, Celtic, are one of the sides who are keen to sign Liverpool’s forward Danny Ings in the January transfer window. Apart from the Celts, Ings has emerged as a transfer target for a lot of other clubs such as Everton, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Watford, which implies that luring him to the Celtic Park would not be very easy for Celtic.
The Glasgow giants, after securing the domestic treble last season, have carried on their scintillating form this season as well and after 9 outings in the Scottish Premiership, the Bhoys are placed at the top of the league table with 23 points to their name.
Brendan Rodgers isn’t going to be complacent at all and thus, it goes without saying that the former Liverpool boss would be aiming to make some additions during the January transfer window to beef up his arsenal.
Ings could be a valuable addition to their ranks, for he is a player of fine calibre with experience in the English top flight. Injuries have halted his progress for quite some time now and considering the plethora of stars Jurgen Klopp has at his disposal, his chances of getting regular first-team appearances this campaign look slim. Klopp is seemingly likely to sanction a loan move for Ings and Celtic should pounce on the opportunity if it does arise.
Having emerged through the youth setup of Bournemouth, he was promoted to their senior side before making a move to Burnley, after which his stocks started to rise considerably. He manoeuvred impactful seasons with the Clarets which urged Liverpool to prise him out of Turf Moor a couple of seasons ago. Unfortunately, his career with the eighteen-time English champions hasn’t gone as expected and some sort of resurrection is the call of the hour.
The Englishman is a crafty forward whose entry into Rodgers’ side would automatically enhance their flair. Renowned for his pace and shrewd movements, Ings has the ability to stretch the defence as well as notable predatory instincts that make him a handy package up front. Besides, he knows how to make the most of the chances handed to him, toils relentlessly and shoots the ball fiercely from the distance.
Although the Hoops do have some quality attacker, Ings could be a morale-boosting signing for them who could steer them towards the silverware. Further, the 25-year-old is at that point in his career where he has a point to prove and by joining the ranks of Celtic he should be able to unleash his potential once again to ensure that his career gets back on track.
