Tottenham striker Harry Kane would have given Manchester City a different dimension, says former Premier League defender Steve Howey.
Kane was the subject of heavy interest from City during the summer transfer window, with Pep Guardiola confirming that the club wanted to sign the 28-year-old.
He was in incredible form last season, scoring an impressive 23 goals and providing 14 assists in 35 league games.
Can City defend their title without Kane?
It makes it no surprise that City spent the whole of the last transfer window chasing after the England captain.
For Howey, City adding Kane to their squad would have given the team a completely different dimension. The former Citizens star told TT:
“To have someone like Kane, which is a focal point, I think would’ve given them a different dimension.”
Having won the title last season using the likes of Ferran Torres and Kevin De Bruyne up front instead of a recognised centre-forward, City can survive without Kane.
They still, of course, also have Gabriel Jesus, whose record in front of goal is very good since joining City. That being said, having failed to acquire that world-class No.9 while rivals Chelsea and Manchester United managed to bag incredible forwards in Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo, some at the Etihad may be feeling a little worried.
