As plans towards equipping their squad towards next season, Chelsea F.C have made offers for the services of Danny Ings from bottom-of-league beleaguered Burnley. The striking department in the Stanford bridge has been of concern to Jose Mourinho. France’s Loic Remy and Spain’s Diego Costa have both been on frequent injury scares all season-long, and experienced striker and veteran, Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba is nearing his prime and no longer a constant option in the role like he used to be.
With all these in mind, the coach has sought to seek the services of 22 years old former championship forward, Danny Ings. Ings came with newly promoted Burnley to the top division this season, after having placed 21goals in 40 appearances for the side last season in the second division. But with such an impressive tally from last season, he has only managed to put in 9 at the back of the net in 31 times playing for the same club, and has failed to find the net in the previous 9 league games.
The highly-rated forward, whose contract at Turf Moor finishes by the end of the season has also attracted offers from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool. He will be available for free when the season finishes, and the blues hope to get him by then. Because of his extraordinary pace and youth, he is seen as the best backup for Costa, whose debut season in the EPL has been marred with on and off injuries, including a hamstring’s of recent, which kept him off the field for last Sunday’s Emirates showdown.
The current backup striker at Stamford Bridge, Loic Remy has had just 5 goals, and the coach hopes Danny’s arrival next summer could provide a reliable option at the front anytime Costa isn’t readily available for play. Talks are currently ongoing, and Ings could be at Chelsea next summer.
