Manchester City could pose a threat to Tottenham’s pursuit of Southampton striker Danny Ings, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
City are looking at signing a new striker in the summer, as injury problems continue to raise questions about Sergio Aguero’s long-term future. The Argentine has been tipped to return to the La Liga where he spent the formative years of his career before joining the Cityzens in 2010.
Ings has been impressive for the Saints over recent years and has established himself as one of the top strikers outside the so-called top six.
Understandably, Saints will try their best to convince the Englishman to stay put, but he could be looking to play Champions League football at this stage of his career.
However, the 28-year-old would be wary about the decision. He spent four years with Liverpool before moving to St Mary’s, and would be looking to avoid becoming a bit-part player.
Should Ings not agree to a new deal at Southampton soon, they may be forced to sell him in the summer or else they could risk losing him for free at the end of the 2021-22 season.
