Tottenham will go ahead to make a summer move for Southampton star striker Danny Ings, according to reports.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has admitted he could be forced to sell the 28-year-old with Ings locked in a contract dispute.
Ings is out of contract in 18 months' time and is dithering over a new deal.
And according to EuroSport, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is ready to take advantage as he lines up a move at the end of the season.
The Portuguese boss wants to add another striker to bolster his strength in depth in attack.
Captain Harry Kane remains their key man while Carlos Vinicius is only on a season-long loan from Benfica.
Spurs looked to land the England forward last summer but Southampton refused to listen to any offers.
But the situation in June will be different with Hasenhuttl's side eager not to lose their star man for nothing.
The Saints boss said: “I hope we find an agreement and finally he stays with us. If not, then life will go on.”
Ings has been sensational since joining from Liverpool, initially on loan, in 2018.
