Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho addresses Danny Ings speculations

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has dismissed speculations that the club will look to sign Southampton striker Danny Ings in the ongoing transfer window.

The 28-year-old has been banging in goals at an impressive rate ever since he made the switch to Southampton from Liverpool, initially on loan in 2018.

Having made the move permanent in 2019, Ings enjoyed a prolific last season, bagging 25 goals across all competitions. He has enjoyed a similarly strong start to the new season, netting seven goals in the Premier League already.

However, recent reports have seen him get linked with a move away from the St. Mary’s, with Tottenham being named as one of the interested parties to sig the Englishman. Mourinho, though, has ruled out the possibility of such a move, indicating that he is happy with the options at his disposal.

“We are not a team that needs a third striker because the third striker is Sonny. Of course, we have the best. We are happy with Carlos. Carlos is not our player, he’s a Benfica player, but he’s a player we’re looking to develop.

“Ings, of course, I refuse totally to say any word about him because he’s a Southampton player.”

Any move for Ings midway through the campaign was always going to be unlikely. However, Tottenham should certainly consider the prospect of signing him at the end of the season.

Ings will be entering the final year of his contract with Southampton in the summer and has proven himself to be a reliable goalscorer in the Premier League. Bringing him in when Carlos Vinicius’ loan deal runs out can prove to be a masterstroke for Mourinho & co.
