Express and Star journalist Luke Hatfield believes that Danny Ings would have done a great job at Manchester City, who failed to strengthen in that area and replace Sergio Aguero following his summer departure to Barcelona.
Whilst City have strengthened their squad, they were also chasing a striker this summer, with Harry Kane seemingly the number one target, but he decided to stay at Tottenham Hotspur and then they were in for Cristiano Ronaldo, but he chose to make the switch back to Manchester United.
Hatfield believes that Ings would have a great job for City, telling This is Futbol: “There are clubs who are probably looking around, you look at the likes of Man City for example who have spent a lot of money on Jack Grealish, but the position they really needed to prioritise was striker and they’ve missed out on Kane, they’ve missed out on Cristiano Ronaldo.
“It sounds silly, but Danny Ings would have done a great job at that club and likewise at others, there are plenty of clubs around who always need a striker and Danny Ings is a very good one.”
According to BBC Sport, Ings made the switch to Villa Park for a reported £25m and signed a three-year contract at the club. The 29-year-old has started the new Premier League season in good form scoring two goals in his opening four matches, and has also provided an assist for his teammates.
