Former Everton striker Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that Danny Ings would be a good addition for the Toffees.
Ings still hasn’t signed fresh terms at Southampton, and with his St Mary’s contract expiring in just over 12 months, a summer move away from the South Coast is becoming a real possibility.
Ings has been one of the most lethal Premier League frontmen in recent seasons, although an injury-hit campaign this time around has seen him fail to hit the heights of previous years.
Despite Ings’ stop-start season, his opener at Spurs last Wednesday was his tenth in the league, allowing him to reach double figures in consecutive seasons for the first time at this level.
While none of those 10 came in the 2-0 win against Everton at St Mary’s back in October, Ings did assist both of the goals on the day for Che Adams and James Ward-Prowse as he gave Carlo Ancelotti and his side nightmares.
“He’s 29 in the summer, he’s had a few injuries, but has been scoring goals and you want someone to come in and hit the ground running,” Bent told Football FanCast.
“I think it would be a good move for him and a good move for the club, but it would be down to the price tag.”
