Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign out-of-contract Burnley striker Danny Ings on July 1, subject to a medical.
The England Under-21 international's current deal with the Clarets expires on June 30 but the recently-relegated club will be entitled to compensation because of the player's age.
Press Association Sport understands Liverpool remain hopeful they can come to a satisfactory arrangement with Burnley without the need for the player's valuation to be decided by a tribunal despite their initial offer being turned down.
"Burnley Football Club has rejected an offer made by Liverpool but will continue to have dialogue with the club in order to reach a resolution over the fee," a club statement said.
The Reds have been in talks with Ings for some weeks and confirmed the deal in a statement which said: "Liverpool FC are delighted to announce that they have agreed personal terms with Danny Ings and, subject to a medical, the striker will join the club on July 1 after his contract with Burnley has expired."
