Loads of Southampton fans have been laughing off Tottenham’s reported interest in star man Danny Ings.
The Daily Star claims that the 27-year-old is on the north London club’s radar following Harry Kane’s injury, but supporters are not buying the idea of a potential sale. And given the season he is having, you can see why they are simply not entertaining this rumour.
After an abysmal start to the campaign, which included that 9-0 hammering to Leicester City, Ings has kept his side afloat with his goals. In 22 Premier League appearances, the English centre-forward has managed to score 14 times.
To put that into perspective, only Jamie Vardy has found the back of the net on more occasions, having registered 17 strikes. With 2.6 per game (via WhoScored), he is also practically taking the same amount of shots as his compatriot (2.5). Currently 12th in the table and seven points above the relegation zone, the Saints undoubtedly have Ings to thank for that.
For that very reason, these Southampton fans are not taking Tottenham seriously, with one supporter deeming them as a “joke of a club”, and have brushed aside the rumours:
That ever reliable Daily Star. He would cost over £40m at least and levy won’t do that. Plus he would be second choice when Kane comes back and he is loved and adored here. Never going to happen this window

What to sit on the bench and rot when Kane is fit I don’t think so
