Tottenham and Liverpool are just two of the clubs to be linked with the striker. The 22-year-old has scored 11 Premier League goals this season, although he failed to prevent his current club – Burnley – from being relegated.
The England Under-21 international is facing up to the prospect of an extremely busy summer, which will also include a tournament for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions side in the Czech Republic.
He will then return in time to sort out his future. He’s out of contract with Burnley next month and is free to join another club, although any English club that signs him will be forced to pay a compensation fee due to his age.
Sky believe that Tottenham have made this bid in order to speak to him before any other club. But despite their offer, Ings has explained that his future is still very much undecided.
In quotes taken by the Daily Mirror, he said: “My holiday’s the first thing on my mind. I’m looking forward to a bit of downtime and after that it’s going to be hard work again.
“It’s going to be a short summer for me this year but I love football so I’d play it every day if I could. After that I’ll sit down with my agent and discuss my future then. At the moment it’s all up in the air. I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
