Former Premier League striker Nigel Jemson has expressed his surprise that his beloved Liverpool have not been linked with a potential move to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur.
They have yet to table an offer that meets chairman Daniel Levy’s asking price, however, with reports suggesting that he is demanding around £150m.
Will Harry Kane join Man City before the deadline?
Kane was left out of the majority of pre-season, but did make his first appearance of the season at the weekend, coming on as a substitute against Wolves in the 1-0 win at Molineux.
Liverpool have kept their powder largely dry this summer, only bringing in the defender Ibrahima Konate on a permanent deal.
And Jemson is surprised that they have not been linked with a deal to bring Kane into the club from Spurs, and thinks he would be an excellent signing for the Reds.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “So if Harry Kane wants to leave for trophies, then Manchester City’s the place.
“But then again, would he do a good job for Liverpool? Yes, he would. And I find it quite bizarre that he was never, ever linked with Liverpool.”
