Manchester United make enquiry 28-year-old Premier League forward

Manchester United is reportedly interested in Southampton striker Danny Ings, whose deal with the club expires in a year, ahead of the summer transfer window.

Manchester United is interested in signing Southampton center-forward Danny Ings in the forthcoming transfer window, according to The Telegraph, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks for attacking reinforcements.

Ings is in his third season with Southampton, having joined in 2018 after an injury-plagued spell at Liverpool. 


The 28-year-old joined the Saints on loan at first and impressed enough for them to sign him permanently in the summer of 2019. Since making the move permanent, the Englishman had a productive 2019/20 season in which he scored 20 goals.

Ings began the current season on fire as well, but a drop in form for him and the squad, combined with a few niggling injuries, has meant he hasn't been able to match his previous season's results. 

Despite this, the former Burnley and Liverpool star has 13 goals and four assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.

At the end of the season, Ings will reach the final year of his deal with Southampton. And, according to the paper, negotiations for a new contract have not gone well, casting doubt on his future at St. Mary's.

 And it seems that Manchester United is prepared to pounce on the England international, with Solskjaer looking to bolster his attacking arsenal.

Edinson Cavani's contract at Manchester United was recently extended for another year. However, considering his excellent season, the Uruguayan's game-time must be carefully handled at 34. 

And, with Anthony Martial's future unclear after yet another disappointing season, it only makes sense for the 20-time English champions to look for another quality marksman to lead the like.

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane is a prime target, particularly because he recently told the club that he intends to leave at the end of the season. 

The competition for the England captain, as well as the financial implications, could force Manchester United to look elsewhere, as was the case with another priority goal, Erling Haaland.

To that end, Ings has emerged as a realistic option for the Red Devils, with the club said to have already inquired about Ings' situation at Southampton, aware that any formal bid for the Englishman could put pressure on the Saints to accept a deal. 

The 28-year-old has also been linked with a move to United's local rivals City, and it remains to be seen if he ends up in Manchester this summer.
