Report: Hammers want England striker

West Ham want to sign Southampton forward Danny Ings according to talkSPORT,

The English capped striker has scored 11 goals in 29 games for the Saints, having netted 25 in all competitions last season.

Ings has reportedly been linked with Man City and  Spurs with the striker reportedly eyeing up a potential move to a club competing in Europe

It remains to be seen if Southampton would prefer to sell the striker this summer or retain him until the end of his deal and let him leave for free if he continues to resist a contract extension.

But while the Saints won’t be able to demand an excessive fee as a result, they are almost certain to make a healthy profit if Ings does move on, having seen him score 32 Premier League goals in just 63 appearances since joining the club permanently.

Liverpool are set to profit if the striker moves on, courtesy of the deal they agreed with Southampton back in 2018.

Ings joined the Saints in a £20m deal, with the Reds guaranteed to bank £18m with a further £2m potentially following in add-ons related to appearances.

But as part of that deal, Liverpool included a 20% sell-on clause, ensuring they are set be handed a financial boost if Southampton are forced to cash in on his services this summer.

  1. Like the person as a STRIKER BUT he also has an injury “history” which is not what we need, especially with Antonio and his hamstring fiasco’s… Honestly believe it may be time to sell Antonio… he cannot be relied upon anymore, the medical team are none the wiser re his injury history and the problem it’s not only the amount of games he misses but it’s the number of games he takes to get up to speed again.., thanks for the efforts but move on… 🤔
