Hammers favourites for striker

West Ham are the bookies favourites to sign Southampton ace Danny Ings

Saints fear they could lose their striker who is yet to sign a new contract at St Mary’s.

The 28-year-old south coast striker scored 22 goals last season and has eight in 18 appearances so far this term.

Leicester are second favourites with Everton, Spurs, Arsenal, Man City and even Liverpool also in the mix.

The Hampshire born player signed for Southampton from Netley Central Sports, before being released as a school boy.

After his release, Ings signed a two-year apprentice contract with AFC Bournemouth in May 2008. From Bournemouth he moved to Burnley, then to Liverpool before he returned to Southampton in 2019 where it all began for for a reported transfer fee of £18 million plus a possible further £2 million based on appearances.

  1. Now he is an established proven Premier striker. If he’s 28 he needs buying this summer unless the fee is prohibitive. Perfect fit for us? Meanwhile develop the youngsters?

  2. Interesting. I was just watching a Saints replay and thought if only we could sign someone like Ings…

    Does he want to move to East London though? More like he’s holding out to negotiate a new deal. Can’t see him wanting to leave Southampton TBH.

  3. Southampton have suffered from both injuries and terrible officiating this year (sound familiar?). They were competing for Europe until it all fell apart. Ings might be looking for a fresh start.

  4. At 28, Ings doesn’t fit the young, hungry on-the-way-up player Moysie has said he wants. Still, he’s a proven striker and if the price is right, why not? I would also like a younger such as Toney as well. We cannot go on forever worrying about Mikey’s dodgy hamstrings.
