Report: Everton eyeing £75k-a-week striker who Jurgen Klopp says is ‘wonderful’

Everton are reportedly interested in bringing Danny Ings to Goodison Park, according to 90Min.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees are thought to be up against fellow Premier League high-flyers Tottenham and Leicester.

The Southampton striker has rediscovered his best form at the south coast club, registering 40 goals and assists from 82 appearances.

He scored 22 Premier League goals last season, only beaten to the Golden Boot by Leicester star Jamie Vardy.

Ings’ exploits for Saints led to him being recalled to the England squad last year.

The 28-year-old won two caps in 2020, his first appearances for the Three Lions since his debut in 2015.

Ings’ £75,000-a-week contract expires in 2022 and, according to 90Min, he has so far refused to sign a four-year contract on offer at St Mary’s.

The outlet claims that the former Liverpool forward feels he has the ability to be playing for a club challenging for a Champions League place.

 

And amid this alleged contract stalemate, Everton and several other suitors are said to be keeping tabs on the player.

Ings is a great player whose time at Liverpool didn’t quite go to plan, but Jurgen Klopp was nonetheless a big fan of the striker.

“Apart from the games against us, we cannot wish him any better,” he told Goal.com ahead of the game between Ings’ Saints and the Reds at Anfield a year ago.

“He is such a wonderful person. He didn’t have enough game time here for some good reasons and the decision he made to go to Southampton was perfect.

“He needed time to get his rhythm back and now he is on fire, a bit like their whole team.”

A hard-working, solid player who knows how to finish and is a constant nuisance for the opposition, he’d be a good shout for the Toffees.
