The 22-year-old marksman’s future at Turf Moor is far from clear even though he’s suggested that he has no interest in leaving, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.
Ings shone for the Clarets last term as they claimed promotion from the Championship, notching 22 goals in a lethal partnership with Sam Vokes.
He has adapted well to life in the top tier since Burnley’s step up, and his four goals in 16 outings have alerted Spurs.
Mauricio Pochettino is known to be desperate to get a striker in in January to ease the workload being thrust on the impressive Harry Kane, and Ings’ contractual situation is of interest to the Londoners.
It’s rumoured that bids in the region of £7m will be tough for Burnley to reject next month as they weigh up the prospect of relegation and losing their man for nothing.
A Bosman deal is also an option for the Lilywhites, who would have to pay a compensation fee at the end of the season to bring in the England U-21 star.
Other names on Spurs’ wish list include West Brom’s Saido Berahino and Jay Rodriguez of Southampton.
