West Ham target Liverpool striker in January

ingsagonyThe Sun newspaper claim David Moyes will attempt to loan Danny Ings from Liverpool in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old striker is recovering his best form having had two knee operations since he moved to the Kop but the next step will be regular first-team football. Moyes is said to a big admirer of Ings and tried to take him to Real Sociedad when he was running out of contract at Burnley a couple of years ago.

The report says Ings is the type of short-term fix on a budget that Moyes has in mind for January when the Hammers will need a lift to get them out of trouble. Liverpool will want to be sure Ings is playing when he is loaned out and not just sitting on the bench.

Newcastle and Ings’ former club Bournemouth both like him and would take him.

  1. Good player if fit but why would Moyes be on a budget there should be plenty of money to spend given that we only spend abut 4 mil net in the summer

  2. So, lets get this right………Andy Carroll injured played only about 20% of games in the time hes been with us……more time injured than playing, to another injury hit ex liverpool playèr…..haven’t we learnt from the Carroll debarcle?

  3. Buying a crocked Liverpool reject…what could possibly go wrong?

  4. First training session – Carroll clatters into Ings & both spend the rest of the season out. Has to happen.

  5. So the sun says bull💩 ! If anybody believes any of fake news this tory propaganda machine poor’s out needs to seek help immediately !
    Remember sakho anybody ! Hasn’t even met up with Moyes yet ! Clean slate ? Best striker in the club , bang on form ! Bilic and his circus have moved on after blaming Russia for their demise 😉 Moyes is going to use Carroll is he ! Well good luck there smeagle what with the problems we have getting crosses in and creative play ! If hoof ball is the agenda its not going to go down very well ! I don’t think one flickon this season has fell to a west ham player lol , play noble at you’re peril as well ! Surely he’s played matches back and seen he has no pace and limited in his ability to control any part of the pitch ! I want to be optimistic in Moyes so let’s see if he has fallen into the Carroll Messiah and noble cult !
    As for ings ? Paper talk IMO ! But we all know sully loves a loan , be it a bank loan or a player
    Its business as usual it seems ! Maybe he will spend another 100 million in Jan 😂😂

  6. Anyway you look at it. Defence and m/f needs strengthening not up top ! Moyes can see that’s the problem ? You would think so lol.

  7. I like Ings & when fit is great but for a striker is not a top concern especially if Sahko ends up sticking around. So why go after injury prone striker on loan. Who has been playing in U23s like Toni give him the chance! Yea
    Makes more sense to add some more Creativity Pace & Defense to our squad to me.
    Why not go & grab Jansson from Leeds 26 big tall physical CB (him over the Kone links)
    Seen After as well tho I like him. But also think give someone like Hakim Zyrich a go Creates plays AM & RM so many options out there. I worry about Moyes just picking from players he knows or British even of not best choice

  8. That’s said tho of one of his former players I would have Fellaini especially if could work Loan deal. He wants more game time & tho older he is physical huge presence in the air actually good passer etc

  9. Ings is a very mobile striker and certainly a good option provided Liverpool pick up the bill when and if he is injured.

    • He’s been injured since he arrived at the club , he was carrying a injury at Burnley , he’s another sturrige , steer well clear !! He comes with a health warning regardless of his ability!
      Carroll , sturrige , ings , Liverpool? Not for me , far to risky IMO! We can’t afford another gamble on Sussy players , not at this time anyway !!!😉

      • You are right Laz on the injury front, he has been a Sturridge/Dyer/Anderton type but then we seem to have very fit players become injury cases maybe the reverse will happen with Ings hehehe

  10. 😁 yes , and finish runners up in the league 😂
