Tottenham eye a 24 million euros transfer for Southampton striker: A good move by Nuno Espirito Santo?

Danny Ings is getting closer to Tottenham day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham are eyeing a 24 million euros transfer for Southampton striker Danny Ings.

The England international was signed by Southampton in July 2019 from Liverpool for a fee of 22.2 million euros. The 28-year-old has a contract until 2022 with the club.

The striker banged in 13 goals and provided 4 assists in 33 matches last season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.

The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in England. As a member of England national football team, Ings won three caps and he scored one goal.

The striker has just 12 months remaining on his contract and Southampton may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.

Nuno Espirito Santo wants to sign a new striker and Ings is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Tottenham manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.

The Spurs are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

The England international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to Santo’s side. Danny Ings has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Tottenham are making a move for Southampton striker Danny Ings. The Telegraph says Tottenham want to bring in Ings in a £20million deal this summer so the Saints forward can partner Harry Kane up front. Spurs are looking for a centre-forward after Carlos Vinicius failed to impress on a season-long loan last term, with no other recognised first-team forward at the club apart from Kane, who is being chased by Manchester City. New Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo wants to change Tottenham’s formation to two central strikers, with Ings being targeted as a striker partner for the England captain. The report also claims that Daniel Levy has been a long-term admirer of Ings and tried to sign him in 2015 when he moved to Liverpool after his contract ended at Burnley.”
