According to in-the-know source ExWHUemployee, commenting on his own club’s interest in Southampton striker Danny Ings, Tottenham Hotspur are ‘very keen‘ on the Englishman and could lodge a bid to sign him in January – with rumours linking him to north London intensifying in recent days.
Ings has reportedly attracted the interest of club chairman Daniel Levy and manager Jose Mourinho as they contemplate bringing in another attacker, with Eurosport first claiming that the Lilywhites are lining up a summer bid.
News then emerged that Levy and co had already been in contact this month over signing him, but again, a summer move looked far more likely (Football Insider).
ExWHUemployee shares Ings update
Now, in another update, reliable source of information ExWHUemployee says Spurs are indeed ‘very keen’ on Ings and could bid for him this window – backing up Football Insider’s claim that a deal may be possible this month.
Apparently, a move to north London does ‘appeal’ to Ings as he contemplates a move which could grant him Champions League football next season (ExWHUemployee).
Judging by this claim, Tottenham pursuing Ings this month could be a prospect to look out for, even though manager Jose Mourinho refused to comment on the speculation linking him to Spurs today out of respect for his current club (football.london).
Transfer Tavern take
Pundit and podcaster Lee McQueen commented on previous links to Ings before the January transfer window opened – hailing the 28-year-old as a would-be ‘unbelievable signing’ for the Lilywhites (Last Word on Spurs).
It’s hard to argue that claim given his form this season, even despite some injury issues, with Ings still managing to bury seven goals and three assists in 12 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
Whether or not Tottenham manage to get it done in the next week remains to be seen, but it could be one to watch if Spurs manage to offload surplus-to-requirements assets.
