Wolves fans react as Michael Kightly suggests targeting Danny Ings

Ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers wide man Michael Kightly has suggested his former side try sign Southampton striker Danny Ings – and some of the club’s supporters on social media have responded to claim he’s an unrealistic target.

Kightly believes that Wolves need to improve their options in attack if they can during the January transfer window and has picked out in-form Ings as the ideal target.

The English forward has already managed 16 goals in just 24 matches across all competitions this campaign, which has surely got him on Gareth Southgate’s radar for an international call-up.

““If Wolves could get in a player of his (Ings) ability that would be great and I think he’d do really well at Wolves. Problem is though, can you see Southampton selling him and what kind of money is he gonna go for?” Kightly told Love Sport Radio.

A selection of Wolves supporters on social media are convinced that Ings would be out of their reach in January and that they would be unable to snap him up.

The 27-year-old has had rotten luck with injuries during his career, but is in a purple patch of form right now and one of the standout players in the English top-flight.

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy is the only player to score more league goals than him this season with 17, while Ings has managed an impressive 14 in the league.

Wolves were knocked out of the FA Cup third round by Manchester United on Wednesday night, but still have the league and Europa League to focus on in the second half of the season with a relatively thin squad.

Here are some Wolves fans responding to Kightly’s comments:
