Danny Ings would welcome the arrival of Christian Benteke at Liverpool, he has admitted.
The Reds are in talks with Aston Villa over a deal for Benteke and a deal could be done next week.
“At a club like this it is expected to sign top players,” Ings is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
“It can only lift you as a player because it is all competition to get that starting place.
“I moved here knowing that there was going to be big signings here on top of the quality that is already here.
“For me it is all about developing and being the best I can be every day and try to compete against those players.”
