Premier League 'Big Six' On Alert After Danny Ings Rejects Lucrative Southampton Contract

Premier League clubs have been put on high alert after Danny Ings reportedly rejected a lucrative new four-year contract with Southampton in the hope of earning a move to a 'big six' side.

Southampton's preparations for the upcoming 21/20 season will have taken a huge blow following the news of Ings' desire to leave the south coast side.

Interestingly, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is keen to sign a new striker following the departure of their greatest ever goalscorer Sergio Aguero - and Ings is believed to be sitting high at the top of his wishlist.

The Saints have been trying to get their talisman to put pen to paper on a new deal since the start of the year with the 28-year-old having just one season left on his current contract.

But according to The Athletic, Ings has turned down their latest offer, which would have made him the highest-paid player in the club's history. So, what are his options exactly?

City have frequently been linked with the player and he has attracted interest in the past from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, but an array of clubs within the league will also be interested, too.

But Southampton are said to be content to let Ings see out the remaining year of his contract, unless they receive an offer that is too good to refuse, of course.

The forward scored 12 goals in the Premier League last season and 22 in the 2019-2020 campaign - testament that he is still able to score goals at the highest level, despite previous injuries.

To put it simply, Ings owes Southampton nothing and should he leave the club, then club every Premier League should want to sign him next summer. But who will it be?

Danny Ings next club betting odds

  • Manchester City - 7/2
  • Tottenham Hotspur - 9/2
  • Chelsea - 11/2
  • Manchester United - 8/1
  • West Ham - 10/1
  • Leicester City - 12/1
  • Leeds United - 16/1
  • Liverpool - 20/1
  • Arsenal - 20/1
