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.
