Tottenham are being linked with a move for Southampton’s Danny Ings, who is one of the best well-rounded strikers in the Premier League.
Eurosport claimed earlier this week that Spurs were monitoring the 28-year-old’s situation.
The report explained that the North London outfit were lining up a potential summer bid to try sign him amid uncertainty over his future.
The Telegraph has further reported that Ings wants to exit this summer after holding off on a new Saints deal.
Ings has seen his career frequently interrupted by injuries, but he’s been in the form of his life at Southampton in the past couple of seasons.
A month before his move to Liverpool from Burnley in 2015, Harry Redknapp said that the English forward was a natural finisher that would score at any club.
“Like the boy, Ings, at Burnley, he’ll score wherever he goes. They’re talking about Liverpool taking him, if they do I’d like to have bet he gets between 15 and 20 goals next year,” Redknapp told talkSPORT.
“I think he would in the right team, in a team like Liverpool who create loads of chances, I think Ings would score lots of goals there.”
Ings’ Liverpool career was decimated by poor injury luck, scoring just four goals in 25 games for them.
But he’s managed 40 goals in 81 appearances for Southampton and reports suggest he could be chasing a marquee transfer away from St Mary’s.
Spurs already have a talisman in attack with Harry Kane, but Jose Mourinho’s side would be even formidable if they added Ings to their squad anytime soon and he would be a big upgrade on current forward understudy Carlos Vinicius.
