£90m for a player we would only get one full sub 30 year old season out off it so risky.

Plus, Lukaku is a huge-framed player, and so reliant on burst and pace. With that huge weight he lugs around, he likely slows down come 31, 32yo max, and he is not a guile-based, pure instinctive scorer like Lewa, Suarez, Raul, Benzema, Zlatan. Drogba, etc

I rate him, a lot, I just wish he was 3 years younger or so.

If i gives 4 good years is a bad business?

I am reading that Kane wants to leave before the EURO. So this should be quick. Give them the cash and Abraham!

Kane up front and we are title challengers finally.

I approve of this, BUT would he come to his 2nd most hated (after Arse) rivals?

Plus we DAMN well better have CL for him, or Lukaku, or the 1 in 100 chance , Håland.

for £90m? I do not know, as at the end of the 4 years, he is 32/33 for  the next season, so very little resale value.

Also, he has yet to prove he is a top flight EPL superstar. He was not that at Manure or Everton, he was a flat track bully. He only had 15 goals, all comps, in 45 games his last year at Manure, only 12 EPL goals.

He may ask Sol Campbel for a piece of advice lol, to find out if it was worthy. I am sure I know the answer.

I am dead serious, if Kane ends up here, I will be over the bloody moon. I sooo want him here.

I would kill for a 25yo Sol Campbell here, lolol.

I would take Kane over Lukaku in a heartbeat.

closing in on 300 goals for clubs and country at 27 years of age and a shedload of assists

I rate best strikers in the world atm (not long term for some)

would be number 2, IF he was a pure CF

1 Lewa

2 Mbappe

3 Håland

4 Kane

5 Benzema

6 CR7 (if you count him as a CF)

7 Lukaku

8 Lautaro Marinez

9 Ciro Immobile

10 Luis Suárez (last year in top ten)

Spuds have been especially fucked more than any club by COVID. Just built that new stadium, haven’t been able to have fans in to start offsetting that cost. Didn’t have the hugely lucrative NFL games and whatever other entertainment events that they had planned.

If a club comes in with say £100m and he puts in a transfer request I find it extremely hard to believe Levy could say no and force him to stay. They need the cash and the player (like Bale and Modric before him) has outgrown the club.

We could potentially luck out in that United just renewed Cavani as sort of a short term mentor for Greenwood who they view as the eventual #9 and want Sancho whereas City may not feel it necessary to spend mega money on Kane when they’ve just pissed the league with no striker and could still win the CL. Unless Liverpool miraculously find £100m by selling Salah we might be the only realistic option.

Harry Kane again tells Tottenham he wants to leave as Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea lie in wait

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all been in touch with Kane's representatives expressing a desire to sign the England international, who has again told Tottenham he wants to leave

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/12309404/harry-kane-again-tells-tottenham-he-wants-to-leave-as-manchester-city-manchester-united-Chelsea-lie-in-wait

Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has to leave the pitch due to an ankle injury during the Premier League match at Goodison Park, Liverpool. Picture date: Friday April 16, 2021.

 

Harry Kane has again told Tottenham he wants to leave this summer.

Spurs are now making enquiries about replacement centre-forwards, in the first indication that the club are willing to consider the feelings of their 27-year-old talisman.

They do not want to sell their prized asset, but Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all been in touch with Kane's representatives CK66 expressing a desire to sign the England international.

 

Kane's preference is to remain in the Premier League and he wants to have his future resolved before turning out for England at this summer's European Championships in June.

Kane has made no secret in recent interviews that he wants to compete for Europe's top team trophies, having found them out of his grasp at both White Hart Lane and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It is understood that Tottenham even persuaded Kane to delay plans that he harboured to leave last summer, after Jose Mourinho had replaced Mauricio Pochettino earlier in the 2019-20 season.

Spurs hoped their first full season under Mourinho would be a successful one, and they were top of the Premier League in December, but amid a Kane injury their form disintegrated and they are set to miss out on Champions League football again with a finish outside this year's top four.

A Tottenham spokesperson told Sky Sports: "We have a season to finish and we want to finish it as strongly as possible. That's all we are focused on."

Sky Sports News reported last week that United are not expected to target another centre-forward this summer after re-signing Edinson Cavani, preferring to focus on strengthening at centre-back and central midfield, amid an expectation that obtaining Kane will be too difficult and that Erling Haaland will stay at Dortmund.

Meanwhile, City also have Kane, Haaland, Romelu Lukaku and Danny Ings on their list as they look to replace Sergio Aguero. Chelsea too have been linked with Haaland, Lukaku and now Kane.

'The ball is in Tottenham's court'

Sky Sports News reporter Paul Gilmour:

"It's been no secret that Harry Kane has wanted to compete for the top honours, both as a team and individually. It's been a frustrating season for him personally. It hasn't happened for Spurs with Champions League qualification. It will be a second season that he hasn't had that.

"He is valued at well over £120m, probably, and the rest, if Spurs and Daniel Levy have anything to say about it because let's face it, the ball is in their court.

"He has a contract until 2024 and they will certainly, if somehow, they do agree to this, they will want to get their money's worth, of course.

"But we have been told Tottenham managed to persuade Kane to stay last summer when one English club came in for him, and they said to him they had Jose Mourinho for a full season, give it a go and let's see what happens. And clearly, as the season has gone on, it did not happen for Spurs and Mourinho has since left the club.

"Harry Kane has had a brilliant season under Mourinho personally, but as a team, they are not going to qualify for the Champions League. The chances are very slim.

"The season hasn't gone to plan and as the season developed, those feelings of wanting something else and wanting to move away have come to the forefront."

Whoever gets him will be instant favorites for the league. Not that City weren’t already, but if they got him it’s another 🔒 for the title. If United somehow, someway went bananas in the market and got him I think they’d be favorites.

And if we were able to put out an attack on any given match day consisting of some combo of Kane, Werner, Havertz, Mount, Pulisic, and Ziyech I think we’d be favorites.

Abraham would clinch the deal! Both Kane and Abraham are surely leaving in the summer. Tammy probably does not want to play for them, but who would? lol

Come on Chels, let’s do this! It is already nice being one of the very few interested and in the discussion.

No reason to get even a little bit excited over Kane, it's obvious Levy doesn't do business with Chelsea and the feeling is very much mutual from Roman's side too. Ever since the Luka Modric saga around ten years ago there's been no hope of the clubs ever doing any transfer business together so why would they all of a sudden sell one of their best ever players to us? 🤨

If they're willing to sell at all, this one has Manchester City written all over it. As a club they're as boring as they get so there'd be no ill will from Spurs fans either, not to mention they have the money needed to make the signing and with Aguero's departure they have an opening in the team for a top class striker to come in. And for Kane himself City would give him the highest chance of winning multiple trophies in the short-term.

Obviously I'd take Kane any day of the week but less than a 1% chance of it happening. It's either win the CL and go all-in for Haaland or alternatively try for Lukaku by taking advantage of Inter's financial problems. If all that fails then I have no idea what to do.

To be quite honest, I would be more than happy spending 30 million on Ivan Toney and go into next season with Havertz/Toney/Werner. 

Who knows, maybe with the price tag there won't be any pressure and we'd finally have a ST who could deliver. 

Ivan Toney? Is this a serious suggestion or a sign of desperation?

I don't think the price tag is the problem with Werner and Havertz. Don't recall anyone using their price tag to beat them with, even though Havertz is our most expensive signing. We just need to improve them and get more consistency out of them.

Abraham + Cash for Kane?

If Dortmund are demanding 150 million for Haaland, then am sure Levy will demand something similar for Kane, who still has 3 years left on his contract (so stupid of him to sign that long term contract). 

IIRC, was Modric not forced to stay at Spurs for like a season because they did not want to sell him to us and there weren't other offers? Can see something similar happen again this summer with Kane if no club are willing to spend that money. If no one are willing to spend 150m+ on Haaland, then it's unlikely they will do it with Kane, not when the effect of the pandemic is still being felt. If clubs wait for another season, they could likely get Haaland on a way cheaper price and for a longer term too.

If United are serious about challenging City for the title, then I'm not sure how realistic is it for them to rely on a 34-year-old and 19-year-old to spearhead that challenge. Given Kane's age, he might serve as perfect foil for those two and could be there long enough for Greenwood to gain experience and eventually take the #9 role.

Fingers and toes crossed this Lukaku rumour is BS. 

We are not winning the title with that llump of a flat track bully leading the llne. Seriously, can you imagine the likes of City or Liverpool having that kind of player in their team? Not a chance in hell!

He's alright in shit leagues like Seri A and clubs like Everton. Not for Chelsea!!!

Break the bank for Lukaku. We have no choice. Besides, Inter has financial problems.

 

Remember this game?

Chelsea was having problems with WBA defense. We're strulling and a equalize is written but look what happened. This is what top strikes can do. Win games from nowhere.

This is a prime example of why in the PL you need some big physical men playing in the forward positions. Out problem is that we are a complete bunch of lightweights these days. Absolute minimum we need is a physical CM and a physical CF (who can run, Giroud can't unfortunately.)

Have you forgotten Lukaku's first touch? It is still dire, it is just that he is playing in a slow ass league these days that he gets away with it. If he came here Tommy Boy would have a stroke with him playing up front. 

As for Kane, not going to happen boys and girls, even if Levy agrees to sell, he doesn't fit our age profile and he has a dodgy ankle. There is no guarantee you would get more than three years out of him in the PL, especially with how we get reffed.

I agree that we need to be physically stronger in the forward areas but do we really need big physical men? Liverpool and Man City have shown that it's not compulsory at all. Sometimes I feel like we're still stuck with this old mindset that we need a big physical striker upfront to thrive, to play in a style that revolves around strikers like that. It's little wonder why the only strikers to have succeeded for us in the last 15 years or so are basically strikers in that mould - Drogba and Costa.
