Man United identify Danny Ings as potential striker target: report

Man United have identified Southampton striker Danny Ings as a potential summer transfer target.

With Edinson Cavani set to remain at Manchester United for at least another season, the last thing you’d expect is to see the Red Devils linked with a move for a new striker.

Harry Kane is the exception to that rule because he’s a truly elite forward and players like him do not come around very often.

Well, the Telegraph seem to think otherwise. They clearly believe United are in the market for a new forward, with Southampton’s Danny Ings now peaking Red Devils interest.

Apparently, United have identified the 13-goal Premier League star as a potential summer transfer target and an alternative to the aforementioned Kane.

The piece actually features around Chelsea’s interest in Ings, with their article claiming the Saints striker could actually end up at Stamford Bridge – though United get a mention.

In terms of valuation, Southampton believe Ings is worth around £30million. For a man who has scored 34 Premier League goals over the last two seasons, that seems fair

I would worry about the 28-year-old’s injury record, though, while he hardly set the world alight during his time at Liverpool. That’s not to say Ings is a bad player, far from it in fact.

For United, there just seems to be other pressing needs. A new centre-half, a right-winger, a defensive-midfielder are all more important acquisitions.

If Anthony Martial leaves, then I would understand moving for Ings but as of right now, this is arguably the last position United should be looking to invest in.
