Speaking on YouTube [32:30], football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold has revealed that Spurs and chairman Daniel Levy ‘really like‘ Southampton striker Danny Ings as the club continue their search for a number two behind Harry Kane – but he admits the transfer could prove difficult.
In recent hours, news regarding Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale has grabbed a lot of media attention given the speedy nature of both developments, but that hasn’t stopped Tottenham from keeping an eye on forwards as the 2020/2021 Premier League campaign gets underway.
Should Spurs sign Danny Ings?
Yes, get a deal done
Indeed, as detailed by the Athletic, a striker is seen as the final piece of the jigsaw for Tottenham despite a hive of activity recently, with a plethora of attacking names being linked to a north London move.
As well as Ings, Habib Diallo, Andrea Belotti and Bas Dost are all names that have been considered by chairman Levy and co – but the Englishman is one who Gold says the club ‘really like’.
There are concerns surrounding his price tag, though, especially given the fact he is homegrown – something that could prove to be difficult to navigate if Spurs were to pursue a deal.
However, the incentive to monitor Ings is certainly there when taking into account his stellar 25-goal return in all competitions over 2019/2020 – with the ‘unbelievable‘ attacker arguably worth a significant investment on Levy’s part.
Another potential speed bump is the game time Ings could acquire whilst at Tottenham, as Gold explained, the 28-year-old is a main man at Southampton and would have to settle as Kane’s back-up if he were to make the move to north London.
Whether or not Spurs opt to go for Ings regardless remains to be seen, but according to the football.london correspondent, there is certainly interest.
