Southampton are leading the race to sign Liverpool striker Danny Ings before the transfer window closes, according to Daily Mail journalist Mike Keegan.

Although he was reportedly left disappointed by Jurgen Klopp's decision to move for Alisson, he's still expected to remain as part of the first team picture with the Reds for the season ahead where he's expected to be their second choice stopper.

Although his first year will be on loan, Southampton have committed to buy the striker on July 1, 2019. Liverpool have also agreed a 20 percent sell-on clause in the deal.

The 26-year-old scored four goals in 25 appearances for Liverpool after moving from Burnley in June 2015. Capped once by England, he was keen to move on this summer in a bid to play regular football.

A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with the wantaway forward over the summer, including Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, Leicester City and Cardiff City.

The agreement between the clubs came late on deadline day, with Ings granted permission to miss training to be ready to travel for a medical when needed.

It's stated that the request has been made, and Southampton now have to hope that they submitted all the necessary paperwork to be given a two-hour extension and attempt to finalise the deal before 7pm.

When a journalist at the Dublin media confefence asked if there would be a lot of players leaving the club before the deadline, Klopp added: "Maybe". Pedro Chirivella, Lazar Markovic, Divock Origi and Simon Mignolet could also leave in the next three weeks.
