Danny Ings has been a revelation since joining boyhood club Southampton from Liverpool, but it seems like his time on the south coast may soon be coming to an end.
The three-time England cap is into the final year of his deal at St Mary’s, and widespread reports this week claim that he has rejected a new contract, with a view to forcing a move to one of the Premier League’s best and brightest.
To be fair, you can hardly blame him. At 28, Ings knows this may well be his final chance to earn a big transfer, and having netted 46 goals in 100 appearances since joining the Saints, his stock is high. So why not try your luck?
We’ve taken a look at a number of clubs who have been linked – and one or two more who could make sense – and ranked his options on their viability.
