Tottenham see enquiry for Danny Ings rejected by Southampton as Jose Mourinho continues hunt for a striker

Danny Ings of Southampton in action during the Carabao Cup Second Round match between Southampton and Brentford at St. Mary's Stadium on September 16, 2020 in Southampton, England.

Southampton have issued a hands-off warning after Tottenham made an enquiry for Danny Ings.

Spurs are on the verge of confirming Gareth Bale's stunning return to the club and the £27.5million capture of left back Sergio Reguilon, both from Real Madrid.

And they remain in the market for a striker to support talisman Harry Kane with Southampton star Ings featuring high on manager Jose Mourinho's long list of potential targets.

Spurs made contact with Southampton on Wednesday to firm up their interest however Southampton made it clear have no interest in selling their star striker.

Ings scored 25 times last season, including 22 in the Premier League to fall just one short of a share of the Premier League Golden Boot.

His form has earned him a recall to the England squad after a five-year absence too.

And rather than entertain selling the 28-year-old Southampton are hoping to tie Ings down on a new contract, as revealed by Sportsmail last month.

Ings' current £65,000-per-week deal expires in 2022.
