Steven Gerrard can't wait to see what Danny Ings can do when the striker pulls on a Liverpool shirt next season.

The Reds have agreed a deal for the England U21 international, who will move to Anfield when his contract with Burnley expires on July 1, subject to a medical.

The 22-year-old scored 11 times in his debut season in the Barclays Premier League with the Clarets, after working his way through the lower leagues as a youngster.

Departing captain Gerrard believes his fellow countryman has all the tools to be a success on Merseyside.

"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," he told

"I think if he carries on learning and developing he can become a top striker and we love top strikers, so it's there for them, the stage is there and I wish [him] the best of luck and I'm looking forward to watching [him] play."

Ings' goal tally last term was made all the more impressive by the fact that Burnley spent much of the season battling to stay up.

Gerrard doesn't expect the former Bournemouth starlet to have any trouble adapting to the pressures of the other end of the table, either.

"He might be the type of player that needs that bigger club, and does thrive on the pressure," he continued.

"He's certainly got the platform there at one of the best clubs in the world to showcase his talents. 

"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. But, as I say, I'm really looking forward to watching him play.

"Hopefully he can get some goals early on which will give him the confidence that'll make him feel like he belongs there."
