Southampton reject Tottenham Hotspur enquiry for Danny Ings

According to the Daily Mail, Southampton have refused to entertain any enquiries from Tottenham Hotspur for Danny Ings.

Tottenham have been spurred into action with a late flurry of incomings. The North Londoners are closing in on Real Madrid duo Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon.

They are also keen to bring in a new striker, with Ings a major priority for Jose Mourinho.

Southampton have refused to entertain any enquiries from Tottenham Hotspur for Danny Ings.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Danny Ings

The Saints star has enjoyed a fine run of form since moving to St. Mary’s from Liverpool in January 2019. He spent the first six months on loan before making the deal permanent the subsequent summer.

He has since thrived at Southampton. Ings scored 25 goals in all competitions last season. This including 22 in the Premier League, falling just short of the Premier League Golden Boot.  The 28-year-old’s performances saw him earn a recall to the England national side after five years out.

It is worth remembering that Ings’ Premier League tally from last season was bettered by Harry Kane just twice in his career so far. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Tottenham need a backup for Harry Kane

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

Ings is an able player who could be an excellent backup striker. The Saints are however not keen on selling him and are instead keen to see him sign fresh terms.

Not only is Ings a dependable goalscorer, but he would also have helped us in the homegrown quota. Unfortunately, it looks like this is one transfer that will not happen this summer.

Signing a backup striker is a priority rather than a luxury and it remains to be seen who we turn our attention to next.
