Danny Ings will leave Villa Park as Steven Gerrard builds a new foundation. Ings was a £25million signing from Southampton last summer and early on also seen as a Leicester transfer option. A fresh and injury free Ings would be the ideal man to play in a position close to Vardy or just behind him.
He is a player with good experience and a past at full international level. Three caps for England is not a grand tally, but still telling a story of good goalscoring and striking ability.
He is a former signing of Brendan Rodgers joining Liverpool in 2015. This could be a reason to believe Leicester would see him as a possible addition in a deeper role up front which at the moment is far from being covered working on a double route to game plans this season.
We have seen Leicester in a 3-5-2 formation and also playing 4-3-3 as certain players benefit from one or another. Looking back we also have seen Leicester perform in 4-4-1-1 and with a certain James Maddison coming more to his best ability be either playing in three men midfield or wide in another set up.
Danny Ings is also one that could come on from the bench and change the game as his presence will give Leicester a different type of player than they have at this moment.
Nothing bad to say about Kelechi Iheanacho or Patson Dake but to have Danny Ings as the fourth alternative or give one of the others a chance to leave on loan or on a permanent deal would not come off as a terrible idea. His former clubs Bournemouth and Southampton are both interested as well as southern neighbours Brighton. His goal stats while at St. Mary’s was close to 50% but still we all know it could be difficult for Ings as his injury record is a worry.
There are still early doors with a transfer window recently opened and so far at Leicester with so many players out on international duty not much to report, but still some interesting views to consider.
