Milner arrives on a free transfer but Ings’ age (22) means the Clarets are due compensation and talks are on-going between the two clubs in an attempt to come to an agreement without the need to go to tribunal.
Liverpool today confirmed both would be on the pre-season trip for matches in Thailand, Australia and Malaysia.
Joining them will be fellow new arrival goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, whose contract with Bolton expired yesterday, although a decision has yet to be made on when Roberto Firmino, who is now on leave after playing in the Copa America for Brazil, will join up with his new team-mates following his £29 million move from Hoffenheim.
Bogdan is keen to make the most of his chance having secured a move to Anfield but knows he will have to displace the established Simon Mignolet first.
“I would like to take this opportunity and play as many games as I possibly can, and be a number one ‘keeper for Liverpool,” he told liverpoolfc.com.
“How do I do that? I have to do it on the training ground first of all, I have to prove myself and prove to the manager that I’m able to do that then when I get the chance, I have to take it and play well. That’s how it works.
“I think it’s a massive challenge. I respect him (Mignolet) as a ‘keeper.
“We’re going to compete, of course, that’s the nature of this position and the sport, but at the same time we are going to help each other as well.”
