Leicester City and Everton have reportedly joined the race to sign Southampton striker Danny Ings.

The England international has less than 18 months left on his contract and he has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur this month.

Ings made the switch to the Saints from Liverpool in 2019, initially on loan and he has since revived his career with 40 goals from 81 appearances in all competitions.

He is currently one of the first names on the Saints teamsheet, but his future remains uncertain with his contract due to expire at the end of next season.

So far, the club have yet to negotiate a new deal with the England international and 90min claims that Leicester and Everton are interested in him.

Leicester have been largely dependent on Jamie Vardy to lead the line and they may be looking into the future with Ings being an able replacement.

The Toffees, meanwhile, have likewise utilised Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front regularly, but there is literally no competition for places.
