Transfer News: Tottenham face Man United competition for Danny Ings

According to transfer news from The Telegraph (h/t Mirror), Manchester United have expressed an interest in signing Southampton striker Danny Ings, who has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, in the summer.

Ings signed for Southampton from Liverpool in the summer for 2018. Having initially joined on a season-long loan deal, the Englishman made the transfer permanent in the subsequent summer and enjoyed a prolific 2019/20 campaign during which he managed 25 goals.

Ings started the ongoing season strongly as well before a sharp decline in the Saints’ form meant he too has suffered in the second half of the season. Even then, he has managed a respectable tally of 13 goals and 4 assists from 32 games in all competitions.

Heading into the summer window, though, Ings’ situation is quite uncertian as his contract with Southampton is up for expiry in less than a year. Although, those within the club remain confident that he is likely to pen a new deal, the aforementioned report claims that talks over a new contract haven’t gone according to plans.

This has seemingly alerted Manchester United, who are in the market for a new striker and now are interested in Danny Ings. Interestingly, the Red Devils have also been linked heavily with a move for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, but Ings is seen as a cost-effective option. (h/t Mirror)

As for Tottenham, irrespective of whether Kane stays or leaves, a new centre-forward is a must with Carlos Vinicius’ loan deal nearing expiry. Ings, to that end, would have been a fine addition given his proven pedigree in the Premier League.

It now remains to be seen whether Manchester United focus on Kane or move for Ings. And if they do indeed make a move to sign Kane, it will be interesting to see whether Spurs line up the Southampton ace as an alternative. A transfer merry-go-round in the summer beckons.
