Tottenham backed to jump at the chance to sign ‘proven goalscorer’ this summer



Tottenham Hotspur backed to sign Danny Ings from Southampton by Alan Hutton

Speaking to Football Insider (h/t Express), former defender Alan Hutton has backed Tottenham Hotspur to go after Southampton striker Danny Ings in the ongoing transfer window.

Having joined the Saints in 2018 from Liverpool, the striker has left all his injury woes behind and turned into a top striker in the Premier League, bagging 37 goals in 64 top-flight outings with the club.

The 28-year-old Ings has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham of late as he enters the final year of his contract with Southampton. And, with there being question marks over the future of star man Harry Kane, Hutton has backed the club to go after Ings this summer. (h/t Express)

“It would fit the wage bill, I don’t think there’d be a problem. The transfer fee, I don’t think there would be a problem there either. He’s is a proven goalscorer, we saw what he did last season.

“He’s already been at a big club in Liverpool. I know it didn’t go totally to plan but he had a serious injury. You have to mark that on the board as not helping his development. I think they would jump at the chance.”

Hutton, however, did add that Ings might not prefer to join Tottenham in case Harry Kane does not leave, as he would end up becoming the second-choice striker. (h/t Express)

“My only issue would be if Kane does stay, does Ings want to come to Tottenham to sit on the bench? That’s the problem for me. He’s done that at Liverpool, he doesn’t want to do that again.”

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

It goes without saying that Ings would be a fantastic addition to the squad at Tottenham, irrespective of whether Kane stays or lives. However, given that, at 28, he is in the peak years of his career, Ings wouldn’t want to join the club and warm the bench. So, it remains to be seen whether Tottenham are successful in his pursuit.
