Tim Sherwood has confidently asserted that rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Danny Ings will be looking for a move away from Southampton at the end of the season.
Reports indicate that Tottenham are exploring the possibility of snapping up Ings in the summer, with the striker currently stalling over a new contract with the Saints.
The striker’s current deal is set to run out in 2022 and, although reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho is a fan of the former Liverpool man, the Tottenham boss refused to speak about the striker when asked about rumoured interest earlier this season.
Southampton have had a terrible downturn in form over the last couple of months and currently sit just seven points clear of the drop zone.
Some Saints fans on social media are convinced that Ings will push for a move away from St Mary’s in the summer and Sherwood is in full agreement with that assessment.
The former Tottenham midfielder and interim head coach told Sky Sports News (2:55pm, March 6, 2021): “I think it has probably gone beyond it now.
“I am sorry for Southampton fans, but I think Danny Ings would probably be looking now to move elsewhere.
“I think there would be a queue for Ings. Reduced fee because he has got only one year left on his contract.”

Given that a lot of clubs across the Premier League are likely to be short of funds, many teams could potentially look at Ings as a bargain option to boost their forward line.
I would not even be surprised if Manchester City pursue the 28-year-old as Sergio Aguero’s replacement should they lose out on the race for Erling Halland.
So, convincing Ings to come to Spurs to compete with the likes of Son, Kane and potentially Bale will be easier said than done.
