'Anyone but Spurs', 'Fair price': Some fans of PL side react to hearing Nuno is very keen on their star
A number of Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Telegraph claiming that Spurs have made Danny Ings their top transfer target this summer.
The Saints face a tough decision with Ings in this window. It has been reported that his contract expires next summer. And he has no intention of penning fresh terms.
That appears to have alerted Tottenham. According to The Telegraph, Nuno Espirito Santo wants to switch to a front two next season.
And with that in mind, Ings has become the club’s top target. It is claimed that he is valued at around £20 million.
There has been a mixed reaction. Plenty of Southampton fans have different views about the reports.
Some are clearly fed up of the speculation. They want a resolution as soon as possible – even if that means he leaves.
There is also division over the reported valuation. For some, £20 million is not enough. They would potentially benefit more from keeping him for one more year.
‘Get it sorted ASAP’: Southampton fans react to Ings being Spurs’ top target
Meanwhile, some have doubted whether he would want to join Spurs. It was previously claimed that Ings only wanted to leave for one of the league’s biggest clubs.
Tottenham obviously have the potential to be. However, they go into this season off the back of a hugely disappointing campaign. And some have joked that it would hardly be a forward step in Ings’s career.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the latest reports…
Gone past caring. Get it sorted ASAP and a replacement in for as much per-season as possible
