Many West Ham United fans are desperate for the club to sign Danny Ings this summer after it was revealed he turned down a four-year contract at Southampton.
The Hammers enjoyed a fantastic campaign last time out as they finished sixth in the Premier League, which means they will be competing in the Europa League in 2021/22. However, David Moyes will surely need to add to his striking options – he currently only has one natural centre-forward at his disposal in Michail Antonio, who has had his share of injury troubles.
The Irons should be busy in transfer market as they prepare for the new campaign, and they may have an eye on Ings now that this big development has emerged. Indeed, talkSPORT‘s Alex Crook claimed a few weeks ago that West Ham were chasing the 28-year-old.
The Athletic reported that Ings – a scorer of 101 senior career goals – has the rejected a new contract offer at St Mary’s, even though it would have made him the best-paid player in Southampton’s history had he accepted.
Would you like to sign Danny Ings?
As a result, many West Ham fans want their club to sign the former Liverpool striker, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Ings’ contract snub
“Get him and Adam Armstrong and I will be a happy man, Antonio can go back out wide and we will have 2 top strikers fighting it out”
“He has to be on our list of striker targets surely… Would be a great signing if we could get him!”
“This is the signing we should be going all out for. Proven PL striker, carried that awful Southampton team. Would rather this than taking a punt on someone from abroad who could be another Haller”
“I’d welcome this signing. Cost too much though?”
“Gladly take him”
“Given our history of signing unsuccessful strikers who struggle in the Prem, would love to see @WestHam #WHUFC go for Danny Ings now he has rejected a new deal at Southampton. We can offer European football and his fee will be lower with 1 year left on his deal.”
