As the January transfer window approaches, a number of Liverpool players could benefit from being loaned out until the end of the season.
It’s not long until transfers can be made again, with the Reds sure to be loosely linked to a plethora of footballing talent in the New Year.
Although much of the focus will be on incomings, most notably a potential deal for Virgil van Dijk, there are also some outgoings that make sense.
The way in which Danny Ings has responded from two cruciate ligament injuries has been admirable, and his popularity at Liverpool is there for all to see.
The 25-year-old is making no headway in terms of first-team action, however, with the U23s very much his limit at the moment.
Given Ings’ age, and the fact that he has the quality to thrive up front for a lower Premier League team, a move elsewhere would be good for him.
Someone like Newcastle would benefit from his energy and goalscoring ability—Joselu is the Magpies’ joint-top scorer this season with just two goals—with his finishing prowess undeniable, even despite his injury woes.
It would be a gamble for someone to opt for Ings, but he has looked sharp enough of late to suggest he has plenty to offer, with four goals against Bristol City on November 5 catching the eye.
