Tottenham tipped to sign three senior strikers after Ings update - Robinson
Tottenham could sign as many as three strikers this summer if Harry Kane leaves.
That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the possibility of Spurs signing Southampton striker Danny Ings.
According to Eurosport‘s Dean Jones (20th July), Tottenham are readying their first offer for Ings, who has just one year left on his contract at St Mary’s.
However, it is said that the bid will be lower than Southampton’s £20million asking price.
The Telegraph‘s Matt Law claimed on July 13th that the England striker is seen by Nuno Espirito Santo as a partner for Harry Kane, rather than a replacement.
Spurs are expected to sign at least on striker in this window, regardless of Kane’s future, after Carlos Vinicius returned to his parent club Benfica.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his thoughts on Ings partnering Kane next season, Robinson said:
“If Kane is to leave they will need two strikers in.
“Who comes in all depends on how the Kane deal is structured if he leaves. United or City may offer a player in exchange for Kane as well as the money.
“They might even sign three senior ones if Kane goes, depending on how Nuno sets them up next season. Ings could be one that we see done at the end of the window.
“A lot of Spurs’ activity in the market will be dependant on Kane’s future. The ideal situation would be Ings coming in and Kane staying.”
