Danny Ings has put Chelsea on red alert after reportedly rejecting a lucrative contract from Southampton.

According to The Athletic via The Sun, the Saints offered the England international a four-year contract to make him the best-paid player in their history.

But Ings has turned it down it his quest to join a top Premier League side, and is willing to wait until next year to depart the south coast outfit.

The contract of the 28 year old striker expires next year and he reportedly has no intention of extending his Southampton contract.

Ings scored 12 goals in 29 Premier League appearances for Southampton last season.

With Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel keen on signing a striker this summer, should the Blues sign Danny Ings?
