Harry Redknapp on bargain strike duo linked with Liverpool switch

first_imgFormer Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT Charlie Austin and Burnley’s Danny Ings would be big hits at Liverpool if they move to Anfield in the summer.The bargain pair have both been linked with the Merseyside club, and the confirmation of both clubs’ relegation has practically paved the way for their exits.It is thought Austin, 25, who has netted 17 times for the rock-bottom Rangers this season, could be available for under £10million, while 23-year-old Ings, whose contract expires at the end of the campaign, may be snapped up for as little as £4m in compensation fees.Reds boss Brendan Rodgers admits he’s been ‘impressed’ by Ings in particular this season, and Redknapp believes both young stars will bag more goals at a bigger club.He told the Sports Bar: “Charlie’s had an excellent season.“He’ll score goals anywhere, he’s proved that this season, and wherever he has been he’s always scored. I wouldn’t see that changing with him.“If he doesn’t stay at QPR then I’m sure someone will take him. He’s a great finisher, he’s hungry and he works hard.“Like the boy, Ings, at Burnley, he’ll score wherever he goes. They’re talking about Liverpool taking him, if they do I’d like to have bet he gets between 15 and 20 goals next year.“I think he would in the right team, in a team like Liverpool who create loads of chances, I think Ings would score lots of goals there.”last_img read more
