Liverpool told to re-sign ‘great’ player two years after selling him

Jose Enrique has urged former club Liverpool to bring Danny Ings back to Anfield after the striker turned down a new deal with Southampton.

Ings has rejected Southampton’s offer of a new four-year contract that would have made him the club’s best-paid player.

The 28-year-old wants to test himself at a higher level having scored 34 goals in 67 Premier League games since leaving Liverpool for the Saints on a permanent basis in 2019.

Ings has a year left to run on his contract at St Mary and reportedly accepts he may have to wait until next summer to move elsewhere on a free transfer.

But Enrique, who played alongside Ings for the Reds, believes his former club should act this summer to reintroduce the forward to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

The ex-Liverpool full-back said on Instagram: “Oh my god, this news.

“That would be great, guys. It’s sad because my favourite to be the striker for Liverpool next year is Bobby (Roberto Firmino) and (Diogo) Jota can play there as well as (Mohamed) Salah sometimes.

“But listen, this option that nobody talked about before and has been in the news now – for me it would be great.

“I know Danny very well, he’s a great man and his work rate (is impressive). Obviously he was at Liverpool before and we know how much the fans love him.

“He always gave 100 percent on the pitch and he’s like Robbo (Andy Robertson, Milly (James Milner) and Hendo (Jordan Henderson) – the kind of player with a great attitude, great work rate and great qualities.

“It would be very good to have him back and I believe the price would not be crazy with just one year left on his contract. Definitely, I believe he is a really good option for us.”

Ings netted four goals in 25 appearances in an injury-marred three-year stay at Liverpool after arriving from Burnley in 2015.

He initially joined Southampton on loan having struggled to break back into Klopp’s plans with the likes of Firmino, Salah and Mane firmly ahead of him in the pecking order.

The England international, who last represented the Three Lions last year, scored seven goals in the Premier League while on loan with the Saints before sealing a permanent move to the south coast.

As part of the deal, worth an initial £18million fee rising another £2m in add-ons, Liverpool will be owed 20% of any transfer fee Southampton might bank for the forward.
