While much has been said about Kane’s future at Tottenham, it looks like Nuno Espirito Santo is hoping to keep the England captain and deploy him alongside Ings.
According to The Telegraph, Spurs are determined to retain Kane and have identified Ings as their top transfer target to come in and play with his compatriot.
Could a Kane-Ings attack work?
With Ings having just a year left on his contract at Southampton, a transfer certainly looks like a possibility this summer, and Roberts is hoping the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ends up being his destination.
“It’d be really good,” the ex-Spurs defender said when asked about a potential Kane-Ings attack. “I think the way Nuno’s going to play, it looks like he will have five at the back, two in midfield and probably three up front.
“I can’t see him getting rid of Son, so he will be the one to go up with Harry and hopefully Ings and play a three up there. It’d be really, really exciting.”
Indeed, if Ings joins and can stay fit, then Tottenham’s prolific attack could be about to become even more prolific.
