Multiple reports have suggested that a backup striker to Harry Kane is one of Tottenham’s priorities when the transfer window opens.
However, some Spurs fans have urged the club to instead swoop for Southampton striker Danny Ings, who has been on fire since the restart of the Premier League.
The striker was unplayable in the Saints’ 3-1 win over Watford on Sunday when he netted a well-taken brace.
The North Londoners reportedly tried to sign Ings during the January transfer window (Daily Star).
With Southampton potentially being forced into selling several of their top stars this summer if they fail to secure a buyer for the club, some Spurs fans want the club to nab the 27-year-old from the south coast outfit.
Here’s how some fans reacted to Ings’ performance against Watford:
Absolute gunman is Danny Ings. Bring him to the club @SpursOfficial

Could Spurs seriously not have signed Danny Ings to backup Kane, a player whose missed serious time the last few seasons? Missed the boat on being UCL finalists as a bargaining chip.

Danny Ings should be a top target for #THFC this summer. Fast, clinical, PL proven, and could play with Kane 👌

Normally would say no!! But he is looking like a complete different player! Very sharp atm ! But injuries seem to follow him ! My Verdict why not gamble ??

Spurs Web Opinion
Fans who think we have any chance of singing Ings are living in dreamland. Not only are we unlikely to be in a position to afford him but why would he want to come to Spurs and play second fiddle to Kane after warming the bench for years at Liverpool?
Besides, there is a clear pattern in the strikers we have been linked with. Jose is after a target man with physical presence who can hold up the ball. Ings does not fit that billing and is quite similar to Kane.
