Tottenham make £20m-rated English star as top transfer target for summer



Tottenham make Danny Ings their top transfer target for the summer

According to The Telegraph,  Tottenham Hotspur have identified Danny Ings as their top transfer target for the summer and want to pair him up with Harry Kane.

Ings has been with Southampton since 2018, having joined from Liverpool, initially on loan before making the transfer permanent a year later. The England international enjoyed a brilliant 2019/20 season during which he finished as the second-highest goalscorer in the Premier League.

While the 2020/21 campaign start on a similar note, Ings was bogged down by injuries in the latter stages while the Saints’ poor form also meant that he wasn’t able to repeat his heroics from the past season. He still managed 12 goals in the league for a team that finished 15th.

With his contract expiring next year, Ings has made it clear to Southampton that he does not wish to sign the new four-year deal being offered, alerting Tottenham. The report states that the Lilywhites, under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, are set to change their formation to play with two strikers.

And, despite the rumours circling Harry Kane’s future, the north Londoners remain determined to keep him at the club. And, the idea now is to pair him up with Ings, while Son Heung-min is another option for the two forwards that Nuno intends to set up with from next season.

Ings is a player that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has tried to sign in the past. A proven Premier League goalscorer, the striker, who will turn 29 this month, is expected to cost around £20m given his contract situation.

Ings, if signed, would be a top-notch addition for Tottenham. Having rediscovered his mojo at Southampton, the England international has shown that he is ready for the big stage again after his injury-riddled time at Liverpool. It now remains to be seen if Spurs actually go ahead and snap up the 28-year-old.
