Tottenham have been linked with Southampton’s Danny Ings if Harry Kane completes a record-breaking move to Manchester City. Ings, 28, has been in fantastic form for Southampton since he made a permanent move from Liverpool in 2019.
Despite being a part of a lacklustre Saints squad, Ings has scored 34 Premier League goals in 67 appearances.
Former Scotland defender Alan Hutton has advised Spurs to ‘jump at the chance’ to sign Ings if Kane does make his big money move.
He told Football Insider: “It would fit the wage bill, I don’t think there’d be a problem. The transfer fee, I don’t think there would be a problem there either.
“He’s is a proven goalscorer, we saw what he did last season. He’s already been at a big club in Liverpool. I know it didn’t go totally to plan but he had a serious injury.
“You have to mark that on the board as not helping his development. I think they would jump at the chance.
“My only issue would be if Kane does stay, does Ings want to come to Tottenham to sit on the bench? That’s the problem for me. He’s done that at Liverpool, he doesn’t want to do that again.”
Kane, 27, has been in sensational form at Spurs for several years, and many believe he deserves to play for a big club, and finally start winning trophies.
He has scored a remarkable 221 goals in 336 appearances for Tottenham during his time with the club and will no doubt score more elsewhere.
It has been rumoured Spurs will demand at around £150million for England’s star man, which only a few clubs in Europe could afford.

He has been heavily linked to Manchester City. They had a £100m bid turned down earlier in the summer but they may come to meet Spurs asking price.
If Kane does go, that would mean Spurs will have lost their talismanic goalscorer and so the England captain will no doubt need replacing immediately with big shoes to fill indeed.
Ings is an established goalscorer, currently at a striker’s prime age, but his injury record is a significant factor.
Injuries blighted his time at Liverpool, in four years he only made 25 appearances.
So, it begs the question for Spurs, will they take a gamble on Ings? Or use Kane’s fee to strengthen other areas on the pitch?
Signings? Or sign Ings?
