​O'Hara urges Tottenham to sign 'perfect' Southampton striker Ings

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara believes Danny Ings would be a great signing for the club.

Ings has been linked with a move to a Champions League club in recent weeks, considering his excellent form with Southampton.

The 28-year-old may fancy one big move during the peak of his career.

O'Hara thinks a move to Manchester City would not make sense, but that Spurs could use Ings effectively.

"He's in fantastic form, Danny Ings. I really like him," former Tottenham midfielder O'Hara told talkSPORT. "I think he'd be a perfect fit for Man City, for Spurs, for Arsenal.

"He obviously played for Liverpool and it didn't quite work out because he had a bad injury, but he can play in a top-six side for sure.

"I think he's a very talented footballer.

"Is he better than Gabriel Jesus? I think Spurs should try and get him.

"If he is available, and there is talk of him going, why not. You play him up front. Harry Kane, in this system, is basically a No 10 so you play a 4-2-3-1 and Kane will drop in.

"I like Vinicius, I think he's good, but Danny Ings is way better.

"If you are talking about Harry Kane and the way he plays in that system with Mourinho and you are talking about a project maybe over two or three seasons with Jose, Danny Ings would be a good signing.

"The only thing I say with Spurs that they struggle with is the fact that the only player that really goes beyond the line is [Heung-min] Son."
