Danny Ings's potential move to Liverpool has moved a step closer following Burnley's relegation from the Premier League, reports The Liverpool Echo.

The Reds are apparently hopeful of completing the signing of the 22-year-old striker when his contract with the Clarets expires this summer, although the club will still need to pay a fee set by a tribunal as he is under the age of 24.

Ings has received numerous offers both home and abroad - and even travelled to Spain to speak with Real Socidead boss David Moyes - but is thought to be opting for a move to Anfield.

Raheem Sterling is preparing to put his Merseyside house on the market, raising further doubts about his future, claims The Mirror.

And, it seems, the Liverpool forward is now looking for a new property.... in London!

Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing him this summer. The England international's future at Anfield is uncertain as he has postponed contract talks until the end of the season.

Liverpool, though, are adamant they will not sell him this summer as he has two years left on his current £35,000-a-week deal.

The Mirror also reveals that the Reds have made an approach for midfielder Mateo Kovacic, as they plan Anfield's farewell to Steven Gerrard.

Kovacic, 21, would cost around £15 million from Inter Milan and is a potential replacement for Gerrard, who plays his final match in front of the Kop on Saturday before a summer move to America.

And finally, Fabio Borini will be a summer target for Lazio if the Serie A club secure Champions League qualification.
