    Levy could clinch Spurs their new Robbie Keane in “outstanding” £75k-per-week poacher – opinion

    NFL Betting

    Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with pretty much every striker possible during this summer transfer window, though an interesting new name has emerged this week…

    What’s the word?

    According to Football.London reporter Alasdair Gold, Spurs have had a “strong, long-held, interest” in Southampton striker Danny Ings but the club has doubts over their chances of actually pulling off a deal.

    Could you see Danny Ings join Spurs this summer?

    Yes, absolutely!

    Not a chance!

    It’s claimed that the 28-year-old would come with a hefty price tag, which Daniel Levy is unlikely to pay whilst the prospect of being second-fiddle to Harry Kane is also proving to be a stumbling block.

    Ings is only valued at £18m by Transfermarkt and is thought to be the Saints’ highest earner on a reported £75k-per-week.

    Whilst it’s undoubtedly an ambitious move, it’s one that Levy should actually consider given their lack of creativity in front of goal at the weekend – perhaps a change of system that could include both Ings and Kane would bring returns.

    Last term, the Englishman netted 25 goals in 42 appearances and averaged 2.4 shots, 1.3 dribbles, 0.9 key passes per game, via WhoScored – often thriving in a system that has either Shane Long or Che Adams alongside him.

    Kane’s more of a target man-like partner, so surely he could reap the rewards even more in north London.

    Spurs know his exploits all too well after he picked apart Jose Mourinho’s men on New Year’s Day.

    Per SofaScore, Ings bagged the winner and recorded four dribbles, six ground duels won and two shots at goal, bullying Toby Alderweireld, who had an off day with just one duel won from a total of six.

    Former Gunners centre-back Martin Keown believes the Saints talisman is “outstanding” as he “presses really well” and is “hardworking,” which seemingly would make him a perfect profile for the sort of player Mourinho would ask for.

    Whilst Clinton Morrison likened him to ex-Spurs man Robbie Keane, claiming “his movement is first class.”

    Levy should splash the cash in order to help the squad get back on track as soon as possible.
