‘Jog on Levy’: Some fans react to reported interest in their forward from Tottenham
Tottenham are reportedly planning their move for Southampton forward Danny Ings – but some Saints fans have responded on Twitter to claim they should be turning down the imminent approach.
Eurosport claims Spurs are preparing an opening bid for the 28-year-old.
Premier League club Southampton are reportedly expecting offers for Ings, who they value at £20million. But, it is understood the first Spurs offer will be lower than the asking price.
In addition, the English striker would like to leave St Mary’s this summer. He is also a “top target” during this window for Spurs.
Ings has scored 38 goals across all competitions during his last two seasons in a Southampton top, so he clearly knows where the back of the net is.
The £75,000-a-week centre-forward is renowned for his energy and speed. Also, he’s got elite composure when it comes to his finishing inside the penalty box.
Would £20m be Tottenham bargain for Ings?
A selection of Southampton supporters on social media are angry that reports suggest Spurs will dip below Ings’ £20million asking price.
The two clubs have conducted some business in recent years. For example, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg moved to Spurs from Southampton last year. In contrast, Kyle Walker-Peters went in the opposition direction.
Ings would be great value for money at £20million, but they are trying some shrewd tactics to try get him for cheaper.
However, the one risk with him is his injury record that has plagued parts of his career.
As long as he’s coming to provide competition for Harry Kane, he’s a great signing.
But Southampton fans are not too happy with reports.
