WEST HAM are leading the race to sign Southampton ace Danny Ings, according to the bookies.
Saints fear they could lose their talisman as the striker is yet to sign a new contract at St Mary's.
Ings has less than 18 months left on his current deal, as the Irons are now 3/1 favourites to be striker's next club with Betfair.
David Moyes will be keen to bolster is attacking options after selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax for £20million and will want to have support for Michail Antonio.
But the bookies are expecting competition for Ings' signature after he scored 22 goals last season and has seven in 17 appearances so far this term.
Danny Ings' next club – Betfair
- West Ham – 3/1
- Leicester – 4/1
- Everton – 12/1
- Tottenham – 16/1
- Arsenal – 20/1

As Ings' contract talks continue to rumble, more Premier League clubs are being linked with the Saints striker.
Betfair have Leicester as the second favourites and if they can continue their form, they could potentially tempt Ings with European football.
Leicester are priced at 4/1 while Everton (12/1), Tottenham (16/1) and Arsenal (20/1) are also in contention.
Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has remained tight lipped about the current situation with Ings.
He said:“We are in negotiations with the player. There is nothing more to say about that.
"If there are any rumours out there, it's not on me to comment. It's always coming from the same direction. It doesn't make sense to comment.
“Everyone knows that he is an important player for us. He wants to stay with us. There is not a reason to speak about it here with the media.”
