Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge believes the signing of Burnley striker Danny Ings makes perfect sense.
The England Under-21 is joining the Reds on July 1, subject to a medical.
He is only 22 so the Clarets are due compensation and Liverpool, having had one offer rejected, are trying to come to an amicable arrangement without the need for a tribunal to rule on a valuation.
Danny Ings is, for me, a no-brainer.
The young lad scored 11 goals for Burnley, a team struggling for points, struggling for goals - and he's on the verge of breaking through to the England side.
He's young and is one who has great potential. He's a goalscorer, he knows where the net is, his movement's good and he's quick.
He can finish, he's quite clinical in front of goal, so he's a player that will only get better."
Ings, in his first top-flight campaign, scored 11 goals in 35 league appearances last season which was more than Liverpool's leading scorer Steven Gerrard who managed nine in 29 matches.
