Manchester United reportedly remain keen on signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, however, according to recent reports, should the club fail in their pursuit, they have Southampton’s Danny Ings earmarked as the ideal alternative.
That’s according to a recent piece from the Telegraph, who claims the Saints value their English talisman at £30m.
The outlet’s article offers some insight into the striker’s current situation and even predicts that he could emerge as a transfer target for Champions League holders Chelsea.
However, among those also interested are also believed to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils.
In fact, it was reported by the same outlet last month that the club’s hierarchy has recently made enquiries about the prospect of signing Ings.
It has also been noted that Ing’s valuation of just £30m could be an attractive fee to any potential suitor, especially during the post-COVID era clubs are trying to navigate their way through.
Since arriving at Southampton in 2018, initially on loan, before making his switch permanent the following season, Ings has gone on to score 46 times in 100 matches, in all competitions.
