Sky Sports have Tottenham Hotspur fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Danny Ings is a top target for the club, and they have even hinted at a £12 million offer for the player.
Now as one of our punters notes, given the forward’s deal expires on June 30th anyway, the fact that Spurs are offering such a large amount of cash is a bit confusing at first glance, but when our landlord explains that compensation for the player would have to be paid to Burnley anyway, and the list of clubs waiting to talk to the forward is growing, we can see why Spurs have decided to table an offer and get themselves the first ones on the list to speak with the player.
The north London club are hoping to beat off Liverpool to the Burnley forward and we think that given the decline of Liverpool in the second half of the season, not to mention the fact that Brendan Rodgers appears to be on shaky ground, a move could take place.
Spurs fans. Is Ings the forward you need? Let us know your thoughts below.
