Off the back of another fine season on the south coast, Southampton’s Danny Ings has been thrown into the rumour mill in recent weeks, most notably, to Manchester City, where he is 3/1 to move to.
The English striker has suffered from injuries at times this season but has still managed to score 10 goals in all competitions in a Southampton side that has been on a torrid run, winning just twice in 13 league games. However, with Ings demonstrating a clear ability to finish chances, a move to Old Trafford may suit him, as United have cried out for a striker who can be in the right place at the right time this season.
With just a year left on his contract, those at Old Trafford might be confident in getting a reasonable price for the 28-year-old, who could leave for free in 2022. Ings might not be the better player than Edinson Cavani or previous employees like Romelu Lukaku, but he will be significantly cheaper.
