Ings's career at Liverpool was derailed by two serious knee injury problems and the forward spent most of his spell nursing the knee.
At 25-years-old, the former Burnley starlet needs to get regular games under his belt and you seriously wonder if he'd be able to do that with Harry Kane at the club.
Various reports have suggested that the striker is desperate for a move and has chose to seek for a new challenge.
He has now returned to fill fitness but the injury woe has restricted him to just 14 appearances in three seasons.
It's thought that despite an attempt to keep Ings, Liverpool are understanding of his wish to move on after an injury-blighted three years on Merseyside.

The government has said the nine frigates will be built in Adelaide under the control of the state-owned company ASC Shipbuilding. BAE beat Italy's Fincantieri SpA ( FCT.MI ) and Spain's Navantia SA for the prized contract.
Liverpool will demand a sensible but not prohibitive fee for the player - allowing him to move on with the likes of Burnley and Crystal Palace interested.
Ings was a target for Newcastle United in January, but the striker opted to stay at Anfield. Origi will return to the club's training facilities at Melwood next Monday where he will have the opportunity to impress his manager ahead of the 2018-19 season - with Firmino's return to be delayed due to his World Cup commitments.
Danny Ings's spell didn't go well at all at Anfield due to consistent injury issues and as a outcome of this, he has lost his reputation as a top forward.
It's thought that there's initial interest from a number of clubs, with Ings' desire to remain in the Premier League set to play a strong part in where ends up.
