Newcastle Likely To Miss Out On This Long-Term Target

The Telegraph are reporting they are ready to make a £20M bid for Liverpool striker Danny Ings, who has been a long-term target of Newcastle.

Newcastle and Southampton are the other two clubs said to be interested in signing the former Burnley striker this summer.

But Crystal Palace will get the transfer money for Ings only when they raise money from their own player sales.

26-year-old Danny Ings – too expensive for Newcastle?

Danny Ings is definitely available this summer, but manager Jurgen Klopp has put a price tag of at least £20M on the player’s head.

Palace are reported to be ready to pay £20M initially for the striker and then a potential £5M in bonus fees depending on how the striker performs in London.

We don’t know what the current situation is at Newcastle with Ings, but it wouldn’t surprise us if the fee is too high and we have been priced out of a move for the long-term target.

So we are also having teams like Crystal Palace and Southampton showing more ambition and spending more money than Newcastle this summer.

There’s something wrong somewhere.

Comments welcome.

    Not sure he is what we need. I would prefer more running power and height. BTW muto’s signing puts to bed the idea than nufc make signings under the radar. He was muted(boom boom) last year and rubbished then by many on here. Schar was also well covered as a signing. Re championship spend, I was critical of Rafa’s approach at times because that was possibly the best squad in the championship in years/ever. That’s why I sometimes got noted with his caution and lack of 442 because mitro and gayle combined were such a handful. As tough as that league is, I think Rafa did a better job last season. An awesome second half/last third. We need more players though.

    Good to see Palace wasting the money they’ll get for Zaha. £25m???? Last season I rated Origi’s loan (6-7m fee) as the joke signing of the summer. This year will be Ings.

    If we want a crock, we should get Carrol. Ashley will not fork out millions on a guy who is likely to be injured.

    I wonder if Everton still want £25m for James McCarthy? A player so boring he could easily blend into England’s midfield. Thank God we didn’t get him.

    Ings – out for months, then comes back and is out foir months with OTHER leg. £25 million ??????
    You must be joking ?
    Rondon I am seriously worried about.
    Notice how NO-ONE else is interested ?
    Surely that should be telling Rafa something ?
