Tottenham are considering Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a possible replacement for Harry Kane.
Tottenham is still determined to keep talisman Harry Kane this summer, despite the fact that the club is well aware of his desire to join Manchester City.
Tottenham is apparently considering Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a replacement for Harry Kane. With three weeks left in the transfer window, Spurs are still hopeful of keeping their star striker, but Manchester City are poised to test their resolve with a second bid for the 28-year-old.
City had a £100 million bid turned down by Daniel Levy earlier in the window, but the Premier League champions aren’t given up yet.
After breaking the British transfer record for Jack Grealish last week, Pep Guardiola has already acknowledged City’s interest in Kane rather than Lionel Messi.
“He (Kane) is a Tottenham Hotspur player, and if Tottenham refuses to discuss, it is over,” Guardiola stated.
“I believe Man City and many other clubs across the world are interested in signing him, and we are no exception, but it all relies on Tottenham.
Man City is reportedly willing to give Tottenham £130 million plus an Arsenal target in order to capture Harry Kane.
“It’s not like Jack’s. He had the [clause]of release, but Jack isn’t like that. Harry is outstanding, and we are interested in signing him, but if Tottenham refuses to bargain, there isn’t much else we can do.”
Spurs and Inter Milan have previously agreed on a deal for Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez.
However, Inter’s decision to sell Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea for £97.5 million is believed to stymie the deal, as the club does not want to sell both of their star attackers in the same window.
Tottenham had intended to buy Martinez to play alongside Kane rather than to replace him, but it now looks that the club has other choices if the Premier League Golden Boot winner leaves.
DON’T MISS OUT Tottenham have agreed to a £60 million trade for Lautaro Martinez, who has a strong Arsenal bid on the table. Chelsea must decide on their next three moves. Inter Milan has accepted a £97 million bid for Romelu Lukaku. To sign Harry Kane, Manchester City is willing to offer £130 million plus an Arsenal target.
Spurs are interested in Everton striker Calvert-Lewin, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
“I still wonder whether there will be a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Everton if Kane leaves,” he told The Football Terrace.
“Tottenham is clearly keeping an eye on him. Tottenham sees him as a possible number nine.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
