Tottenham have a major Danny Ings transfer dilemma, with Southampton furious.
Despite Ings’ recent rejection of a new contract with the Saints, the club will not be compelled to sell him when his current contract expires next summer.
According to sources, Southampton do not want to sell Danny Ings this summer, especially not to Tottenham, who have been prominently connected with the striker. This is due to the Saints’ negative experiences in previous negotiations with Spurs.
Nuno Espirito Santo, the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur, is said to be interested in signing the 28-year-old as a partner for Harry Kane next season.
Southampton may be tempted to move Ings after he turned down a new contract with the club. His current contract expires next summer.
The Evening Standard, however, claims that this is not the case, and that Southampton have no plans to trade him this summer.
They go on to say that Spurs would be the last Premier League club with whom they will do business.
This is owing to a sour experience dealing with Spurs during Pierre-Emilie Hojbjerg’s summer transfer.
Spurs apparently tried to turn the midfielder’s head early in the negotiations, and this, combined with chairman Daniel Levy’s known hardball tactics, means they don’t want to sell to the north London club.
Manchester City and Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the striker.
According to FA certified broker Paul O’Keefe, Ings is willing to move to any of the four teams if an offer is presented.
Nuno would have to keep hold of his skipper first if he wants to add Ings as a Kane partner.
It will be difficult for him and new director of football Fabio Paratici to prevent the England international from leaving this summer.
Kane is said to have told Spurs that he wants to join a team that competes for silverware on a regular basis.
The club, on the other hand, is under no obligation to sell the boyhood Spurs supporter, and they have the authority to make things tough for the 27-year-old.
Spurs will definitely aim to add to their squad in order to improve on their seventh-place finish last season.
They are also allegedly interested in adding a creative midfielder this summer, in addition to Ings.
Houssem Aouar of Lyon and Renato Sanches of Lille have both been linked.
Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, and PSG are all interested in signing Aouar, who scored eight goals for Lyon previous season.
