Ings was one the names expected to leave Anfield this summer after failing to gain regular football under Jurgen Klopp.

Now, The Mirror report that Southampton are chasing a Premier League-sanctioned extension in order to try and push through a late deal for Liverpool striker Danny Ings, with the Saints cutting it very, very fine. He has signed a four-year contract and could make his debut for his new club against former side Burnley on Saturday.

The fee is variable though, and the Saints could be required to pay a further £2m in appearance-related add-ons, while Liverpool also have a 20% sell-on clause.

As well as bringing in Alisson from Roma - a move which made the Brazilian the most expensive goalkeeper of all time - Liverpool have also brought in his countryman Fabinho from Monaco, Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke and Naby Keita from RB Leipzig.

Danny Ings departed Liverpool on Thursday with a message of luck for the club he has called home for the past three years.

Southampton are reportedly burning the midnight oil as they attempt to sign Danny Ings.

The report states that, because the deal sheet has been submitted, the paperwork can be completed up until 7pm, and the move is likely to be an initial loan with a view to a permanent transfer.

Ings leaves with everyone at Liverpool's best wishes, with staff and team-mates aware how hard he worked to get back to full fitness after those devastating injuries.

When a journalist at the Dublin media confefence asked if there would be a lot of players leaving the club before the deadline, Klopp added: "Maybe".
