Impressive stat shows Tottenham missed a trick by not snapping up £25m Premier League ace


Tottenham missed out by failing to sign Danny Ings.

The Aston Villa striker was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham from Southampton over the summer.

The impressive English goalscorer has always looked dangerous when he’s been fit.

However, despite the heavy rumours linking him with Spurs (The Sun), the Lilywhites missed out.

Instead, Ings made the £25m switch to Aston Villa (Sky Sports), where he’s shone for the Villans.

He scored his third goal of the season against Wolves this weekend as he’s continued his strong start to life in Birmingham (Transfermarkt).

However, after that goal vs Wolves, a stat has emerged about Ings’ goalscoring prowess.

Only Bruno Fernandes, Mo Salah, Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Jamie Vardy have outscored Ings since the start of 2020.

That is an incredible stat given some of the players in the Premier League.

This shows just how impressive Ings has been.

Those numbers should have been enough for Tottenham to part with £25m for the then-Southampton man.

However, the Lilywhites not only failed to sign Ings, but failed to sign anyone to play alongside Harry Kane.
