Liverpool Legend and outgoing captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he is very excited about new signing Danny Ings.
Gerrard has asked the Liverpool supporters to be patient with the young foward who is now set to join the club when his contract at Burnley expires on July 1.
Ings scored 11 times for relegated Burnley last season .
Steven Gerrard told the club’s official website:
“The Ings one I’m really excited about, because he can be what he wants to be. I know the talent’s there, he’s very young, he’s fresh.
“I think if he carries on learning and developing he can become a top striker and we love top strikers, so the stage is there. I wish him the best of luck and I’m looking forward to watching him play.
“For me, the supporters just need to be patient with him. He’s still very young and I’m sure he’ll get eased in gently.
“He might be the type of player that needs that bigger club and does thrive on the pressure. He’s certainly got the platform there at one of the best clubs in the world to showcase his talents.
“Hopefully he can get some goals early on which will give him the confidence that’ll make him feel like he belongs there.”
