Club urged not to sell £75k-a-week striker to Spurs, he's pure 'quality' and so hard to replace
Spurs have been linked with Danny Ings in recent weeks.
According to The Athletic, Tottenham have made the Southampton striker one of their main targets up front.
However, Spurs might find it tricky to negotiate, given how reluctant the Saints are to sell Ings.
The south coast club reportedly wants £25million for the 28-year-old.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham are willing to meet that valuation, added The Athletic.
“I’d be very worried”
TalkSPORT pundit Tony Cascarino has made his feelings clear on Ings’ importance to his team.
He thinks selling Ings this summer would be dangerous for them and could even end in them being relegated.
“If I was a Southampton fan, I’d be very worried,” said Cascarino.
“And I wouldn’t be selling him for £20m, even if he’s got a year on his contract.
“Because, how much money to stay in the Premier League?
“And I understand he’s got a year to go, I wouldn’t want to be selling him at all.
“He’s a very gifted lad who does a lot of the ugly side, and a talented forward that they can’t replace.
“I don’t think you can replace him for even close to that.
“So I would be saying keep him for another year, just keep him and if we don’t get nothing at the end of next season, so be it.
“Southampton could go down, losing a player of that quality.”
Ings has registered 46 goals and 10 assists in 100 games for Southampton since his move from Liverpool in 2019.
Last season, the £75,000-a-week ace netted 12 Premier League goals, while the season before, he grabbed 22 in the top flight.
Ings also boasts a decent record against Spurs, scoring six times against them in the past two seasons, five of which have been in the league.
