Tottenham Hotspur retain an interest in Southampton ace Danny Ings

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Southampton’s ace striker Danny Ings.

He is the latest name to be linked with a move to North London. Tottenham are in dire need of bringing in a dependable backup to Harry Kane.

The England skipper is our lone senior striker. By going into the season without bringing in a backup, we risk the troubles we faced last campaign. While the likes of Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-Min are capable of filling if needed, they lack the clinical incisiveness expected of a specialist.

While Tottenham’s interest in Ings is not new, the club believes it will be difficult to sign the player this summer.

The 28-year-old joined Southampton on a permanent basis last summer from Liverpool. He went on to score 22 times and was amongst the top scorers in the league.

Adding him to our roster will also satisfy the homegrown quota. However, despite the positives, he will not come cheap.

Tottenham need a backup for Harry Kane

Spurs have not been immune to the financial aftershocks of the coronavirus pandemic. While we have brought in three players this summer, none of them can be termed as extravagant purchases.

Joe Hart was a free transfer, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty were shrewd acquisitions. The prospect of us breaking the bank for Ings seems unviable at this point in time.
