Crystal Palace are interested in signing Liverpool outcast Danny Ings - but face competition from three Premier League clubs.

Newcastle, Southampton and Watford are also keen on taking the striker on loan in January.

Ings has been plagued by serious injuries since joining Liverpool from Burnley in 2015. It has limited him to just six league appearances in over two years.

He has been working his way back to full fitness by appearing in Under-23 games this season and made a 17-minute cameo in the Reds’ Carabao Cup defeat to Leicester in September.

However, Ings knows he must be playing regularly to be in with a chance of making the England squad for next summer’s World Cup.

The 25-year-old featured for England against Lithuania in October 2015 under Roy Hodgson.

And the Palace manager wants to work with the ex-Bournemouth man again.

Ings would provide much-needed competition to Christian Benteke, who is currently sidelined with a knee injury.
