Former Arsenal striker sends warning to Spurs target over summer move

Kevin Campbell has warned rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target, Danny Ings, that he might not get as much game time as he would like if he moves to a big club this summer. 

Ings is set to enter the final year of his contract with Southampton and there has been considerable speculation about his future over the last couple of months.

Alasdair Gold said last month that the 28-year-old is not keen on the prospect of joining Spurs and playing second fiddle to Kane.

However, Eurosport claimed recently that the North Londoners’ still have not lost hope of landing the Saints star even though they are also exploring other options.

Meanwhile, the England international has also been linked with a move to Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola said to view the striker as Sergio Aguero’s potential replacement.

Campbell believes that Ings faces a difficult decision ahead of the summer transfer window, particularly given how things failed to work out for him during his time at Liverpool.

The former Arsenal striker told Sky Sports about the Southampton man’s future (as relayed by HITC): “Good player and he knows the Premier League. He’s done his stint at a big club. 

“He went to Liverpool and it didn’t quite work out. He got injured and struggled a little bit.

“I think you could go to a big club if you can be guaranteed 25–30 games a season. But I would much rather play week in and week out.

“You then get a certain level of know-how and smartness. You can use all your skills. If you are out of the team sometimes you don’t get going.

“I think it’s a very tough one for Danny Ings to maybe make a decision.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

I would be surprised if Ings was open to joining Tottenham if Kane and Son both stay. The Saints star is in the peak years of his career and will want to join a club where he is guaranteed to be the first choice. I would not be surprised if a club like Leicester or West Ham snaps him up.
