Transfer News: Tottenham get a boost in chase for Danny Ings
According to transfer news from Express, Tottenham have received a boost in their pursuit of Danny Ings. The Southampton striker has refused to commit to a new deal and would prefer a move to a bigger club with title aspirations.
It has been a while since news broke that Kane had informed Tottenham of his desire to leave the club at the end of the season. Manchester City have emerged as contenders to secure the signing of the 27-year-old England captain. However, the £150m price tag could deter any club from signing him which is what Spurs want.
Regardless of Kane’s future, Spurs will need a new striker next season. After the departure of Carlos Vinicius, Kane remains the only striker on the side. Now, they could get their chance to land a player they had previously held an interest in.
Danny Ings has refused a new contract at Southampton despite his existing deal ending within a year. He has expressed his desire to take on a bigger challenge at a bigger club with aspirations. Spurs have been alerted to this development and are keeping tabs on the situation.

In Ings, Spurs can get a tried and tested Premier League performer who has scored with consistency at Southampton. Even if Kane ends up staying, Spurs should try to go after Ings. He could be available at a cut-price deal given his contract ends next season.
