It’s been a transfer window full of surprises, and Tottenham could be set to carry on this trend.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham are linked with fresh move for Danny Ings.
Southampton spent 22.2 million euros to sign the England international from Liverpool in the summer of 2019. The 28-year-old has two years left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
The striker has banged in 25 goals and provided 3 assists in 42 matches for Southampton last term on all fronts.
Ings has been one of the star players for Southampton last season.
Jose Mourinho wants to sign a new striker and Ings is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Spurs are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Danny Ings is a dynamic striker, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Southampton striker Danny Ings is the latest name being linked with a move to Tottenham. The Saints front man is someone Spurs see as an ideal option in attack, likely as a deputy to Harry Kane, according to football.london. The issue is that Ings may not want to sign as a backup. He would want to play regularly, as he does for Southampton. And given he scored 22 goals in the Premier League last term, Southampton would want a huge fee for the 28-year-old, which doesn’t appeal to cash-strapped Spurs. Nonetheless, manager Jose Mourinho said this week he was confident of signing a striker before the transfer window shuts. The club are also looking at Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose, Crystal Palace loanee Alexander Sorloth and Metz hitman Habib Diallo.”
