Manchester City are planning to add Danny Ings to their front line next summer.
Sergio Aguero’s uncertain future and Pep Guardiola’s reluctance to fully depend on Gabriel Jesus for goals means another striker addition is necessary.
Ings has been in blinding form over the past 18 months and fits the profile of players Guardiola likes. He is technically good, capable of hold-up play and has a genuine eye for the goal. Ings missed out on the Premier League Golden Boot by just one goal last term.
The Englishman came into the Premier League with Burnley and then was signed out by Liverpool. His stay at Anfield was horrific and riddled with injuries. It was only after a move to Saint Mary’s where he hit his best form in the top-flight, showcasing all of his talents.
Ings has a contract until June 2022 and Ralph Hassenhutl was forced to address his future. He said, “We are in negotiations with the player, there is nothing much more to say. If there are any rumours out there, it is not my place to comment. Its always coming from the same place. It doesn’t make sense to comment.”
