West Ham, Newcastle and Bournemouth in a battle to sign striker

West Ham have joined the race to sign Liverpool striker Danny Ings according to reports today.

The former Burnley striker has been restricted to just 12 appearances for Liverpool since joining the club back in 2015. His spell at Anfield has been blighted by injuries, including two serious knee injuries in just over a year.

However he is now back to full fitness and is playing with Liverpool’s U23 squad, where he recently scored four goals against Bristol City.

According to The Sun on Sunday, new West Ham United boss is keen to sign the 25-year-old who he hopes will help solve the club’s problems in front of goal.

It isn’t the first time Moyes has been interested in signing Ings. He tried to get the striker to join him during his spell as Real Sociedad manager, but ultimately he chose to move to Liverpool.

The article also claims that Bournemouth are also interested in signing Ings, while we brought you the news earlier this week that Newcastle United are also interested.

Any deal is highly likely be a loan move until the end of the season for several reasons. Ings is still hoping to become a first team regular at Liverpool and wants to use the opportunity to prove he can still do it in the Premier League. His potential suitors also are wary of signing him on a permanent deal for now until he proves he is over his long term injury problems.
