Danny Ings wants future resolved ahead of U21 Euros - sources

Danny Ings is highly-rated by Burnley.

Danny Ings' future is unlikely to be resolved in the next 10 days but the in-demand striker is expected to make a decision before the European Under-21 Championships, sources have told ESPN FC.

Ings, 22, scored 11 goals in the Premier League for Burnley, including a winner in their final-day victory over Aston Villa, but announced afterwards that he would definitely leave Turf Moor.

The striker is out of contract at the end of June but, as he is under 24, he will still command a transfer fee which will be determined by a tribunal unless a price is agreed with Burnley.

Liverpool are favourites to sign the striker, who has also attracted interest from Tottenham and Real Sociedad.

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham submitted a £12 million offer for Ings but he favours a move to Anfield, while the bid could help Burnley's cause if they do go to a tribunal as it would help illustrate his transfer value.

Ings, who has scored four goals in nine England U21 caps, is a member of Gareth Southgate's squad for the European U21 Championships in the Czech Republic, which runs from June 17-30.

The former Bournemouth forward is on holiday at the moment and but will be back by June 7 and wants his future sorted before he is in action again.

Liverpool are aiming to bolster their forward line after their specialist strikers only scored eight league goals last season and Daniel Sturridge struggles with injury, while Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini are all expected to be deemed surplus to requirements.

Tottenham top scorer Harry Kane scored 31 goals but manager Mauricio Pochettino lacked other prolific forwards in his debut year at White Hart Lane.

Spurs and Liverpool are also interested in Burnley right-back Kieran Trippier, who has two years left on his contract which also includes a release clause.

Burnley are also set to appoint Brentford sporting director, and former Liverpool scout, Frank McParland as their new director of football. He may have to recruit two strikers with Ings set to leave and Ashley Barnes likely to miss much of next season with a cruciate ligament injury.
