Tottenham are set for a huge summer overhaul. The club will be looking for a new manager, moreover, they’ll need to decide on Harry Kane’s future. Kane made it clear he wanted to leave the club last week. Spurs’ public stance over the 27-year-old is that he is not for sale. But reports suggested that number would be around the £120million mark.
The England international finished the Premier League as a player with the most number of goals and assists and it would be hard to continue without him. But sometimes, you need to lose something if you want to gain something else.
Chelsea sold their superstar Eden Hazard and they are now in the Champions League final, after finishing fourth in the Premier League. Or Phillipe Coutinho going to Barcelona and Liverpool dominating European football for 18 months.
Here’s how, according to the Mirror, Tottenham could line up without Kane after a £120m from his sale.
Gareth Bale could join the club permanently. He is the one who fits the bill of Kane. It’s unlikely he will stay at Real Madrid next year and with one year left on his deal, his transfer fee might finally be affordable.
Leicester City ‘s Ricardo Pereira would be a perfect candidate for the right-back position. It’s not long ago he was tipped for a big-money move to one of the Premier League big six until an injury wrecked that momentum.
Joachim Anderson of Fulham, who is currently on loan from Lyon, could help Spurs deal with their defensive struggles. Anderson is a player Spurs can build around going forward.
Marcel Sabitzer will go a long way in filling it as the RB Leipzig captain continues to impress in the Bundesliga. And finally, Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin is one of the players who could join Tottenham. He is a great all-around no.9 just like Kane.
