Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Danny Ings would be a good front-line partnership for Everton, according to former Toffees defender Michael Ball.
Southampton striker Danny Ings has less than one year left on his current deal at St Mary’s and has been linked with a move away from the south coast this summer.
While one of the main clubs to have been credited with an interest in the striker is Tottenham Hotspur, when asked if Ings and Calvert-Lewin would be a good a partnership for Everton, Ball exclusively told Transfer Tavern: “You’d think so, obviously Danny wants his opportunity to go and play for a big club again. He was unfortunate in his time at Liverpool with his injury, and he’s asking to leave Southampton for better things.”
With new manager Rafa Benitez at the helm at Goodison Park, he has started to assemble his own squad, bringing in Asmir Begovic, Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend to the club already.
After rejecting a new contract with Southampton, the Saints have put a £20million price-tag on Ings, according to Eurosport, which for a proven Premier League striker would be a good bit of business if a club is able to conclude a deal this summer.
