Reports claim Burnley striker Danny Ings will turn down a move to Real Sociedad in the summer in favour of a switch to Liverpool.
The 22-year-old is out of contract at Turf Moor in the summer and therefore available at a knockdown price but Sociedad appear to have missed out on the striker who visited their manager David Moyes in Spain earlier this month, according to the Mirror.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had wanted to bring Ings on board in January but that move was blocked by Burnley who insisted on keeping him as they battle against the drop but he will move in the summer.
Ings is under 24 so the Clarets would be able to command a compensation fee, although it will be nowhere near what they could have expected had he still been under contract.
However the fee will be more if he stays in this country than if he were to go abroad.
