Manchester United are considering a summer raid for Southampton standout Danny Ings, according to reports.
The prolific hitman Ings, of course, has enjoyed another solid campaign to date.
The 28-year-old has re-established himself as one of the most feared forwards in English football in the last 18 months, proving to be a key cog in an impressive Southampton side.
After racking up 22 stellar goals in the Premier League last season, Ings, despite concerns about his fitness, has found the net 12 more times in 28 league appearances this time.
He has also had a respectable four assists.
Such feats had helped Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men face a surprise challenge for European football early in the campaign, although the Saints have since drifted well off the pace of the top six.
Old Trafford switch?
As such, it goes without saying that Southampton will be eager to keep Ings as long as possible.
However, with such an impressive production, an unavoidable outside interest arises.
In recent months, for example, one team in particular has persistently bent over to launch an offense in a bid to get the star from the Saints.
The side in question? Tottenham.
Amid suggestions that Ings is delaying putting pencil on paper on a new contract at St. Mary’s, North Londoners have been called as a possible landing site in summer.
And, as described above, the past 24 hours have seen another of the Premier League heavyweights enter the fray.
According to a report by transfer expert Mike McGrath of the Telegraph, Manchester United have identified Ings as a potential reinforcement for their front line heading into next season.
With Edinson Cavani, of course, entering the final years of his career, and Anthony Martial continuing to strive for both form and fitness, Southampton’s attacking spearhead has been designated as an ideal, low-cost option. to bring proven Premier League quality to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team. .
McGrath goes on to claim that inquiries have already been made by the Red Devils, and that Ings remains stuck in compromising his future with Southampton.
Come this summer, the 28-year-old will only have one year left on his current contract with the Saints.
Manchester United have asked questions about Danny Ings’ situation in Southampton, where he has one year left on his contract.
