With both Burnley and Queens Park Rangers unable to avoid relegation, some of their star players will be looking to remain in the top flight, and many Premier League teams will look to cash in.
Burnley’s Danny Ings and QPR’s Charlie Austin have both been relatively prolific strikers this season, with 10 and 17 goals, respectively.
With Ings at age 22 and Austin at 25, the two strikers are still young, yet to hit their prime and are likely to want to stay at the top level of competition – and there will be many teams on the lookout.
Ings has been on Liverpool’s radar throughout his strong campaign and is inching closer to a free transfer to Anfield. Also linked with Manchester United and David Moyes’ Real Sociedad, Ings certainly has options, but it seems that Liverpool are most keen to jump on the opportunity.

As for Austin, The Telegraph has reported that Newcastle and Southampton lead the chase for the former Burnley man. Austin has also been linked with many other clubs, ranging from Manchester United to Chelsea, and, of course, the striker thirsty Liverpool.
Rumours circulating have other players like Burnley’s Kieran Trippier linked with West Ham and Stoke City, while QPR’s goalkeeper Rob Green has been linked with a move to Chelsea as they look for a potential Petr Cech replacement.
As is the case every year, the transfer rumours are heating up more than ever, especially surrounding those who wish to play at the highest level of English football.
