Journalist claims Spurs could sign £ 1.5million Premier League striker to replace Kane
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in Everton hitman Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a potential replacement for Harry Kane, according to a reporter.
Kane’s future was cast in doubt earlier this week after the 28-year-old failed to show up for preseason training amid speculation about a transfer to Manchester City.
And Pete O’Rourke told The Football Terrace on Youtube that Spurs could seriously consider the Everton forward to replace their star man, if he leaves.
He said: “I always wonder if Kane goes there, maybe a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Everton. He’s definitely on Tottenham’s radar. They see him as a potential number nine and Tottenham see him as a potential replacement material. “
Any move for Kane would pocket Tottenham at least nine figures and there is no doubt the north Londoners could certainly afford the Toffees star, a £ 1.5million signing from Sheffield United five years ago.
That being said, the 24-year-old, who scored 21 goals in 39 games for the Goodison Park club last season, is arguably Everton’s most important player and it would take a massive bid to convince the Merseysiders to step aside. get rid of the England international, who has four years to complete his contract.
Rafael Benitez will likely have accepted the Toffees position on condition that none of the club’s major players are sold and therefore no, he is not realistic to think that the Lilywhites might melt for Calvert-Lewin.
Additionally, many Tottenham fans may also want a more established name.
Not that Calvert-Lewin isn’t a good number nine, but Kane is easily one of the best in the world and so they’re going to need a truly world-class figure to replace him.
And is the Everton man world class? It could be in the near future but for now, no.
