Man City Transfer Target reject new four-year deal at club sparking new rumors

The Premier League champions are still involved in their search for a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero this summer, as the situation around their main targets maintains a complicated status.

Tottenham have already reportedly rejected an initial £ 100million opening bid from Etihad for Harry Kane, while Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland or Inter’s Romelu Lukaku is apparently unlikely to want to leave.

This could draw Manchester City’s attention to other targets, including Danny Ings – who was identified as a potential option earlier this year, and the latest developments are shifting this particular situation in favor of Pep Guardiola’s side.

According to a Exclusive report by David Ornstein at Athletic Southampton striker Danny Ings turned down a new four-year contract at St Mary’s on Monday – a proposal that would have made him the highest-paid player in club history.

However, and perhaps more interesting for Manchester City and their hopes, it is reported that the 28-year-old ‘wants to test themselves at a higher level‘, which means Southampton now faces the dilemma of deciding whether to sell Ings this summer or risk losing him for free in the summer of 2022.

But what has already been reported around Danny Ings and potential Manchester City interest?

At the beginning of February, David Ornstein reported that the Manchester City recruiting operation was ‘sufficiently advanced‘to prepare for the idea of ​​acquiring two new forwards during the ongoing summer transfer window – if that comes to fruition, Danny Ings has been named as one of those options.
