Writing for Eurosport, journalist Dean Jones has lifted the lid on a possible blow for new Tottenham Hotspur boss Nuno Espirito Santo involving star striker Harry Kane.
The Lowdown: Kane wants to quit…
As per Sky Sports, who originally broke the news, Kane has informed Spurs of his desire to leave north London this summer – with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all interested from the Premier League.
The 27-year-old has just enjoyed a fine Euro 2020 with England despite not being able to clinch the trophy at Wembley, which could potentially increase demand for him this summer.
The Latest: Jones shares Kane blow for Nuno and Spurs…
Writing for Eurosport, Jones has lifted the lid on a possible blow for Nuno as he drops a Spurs update involving Kane.
Indeed, as per the reporter, Kane is expected to reiterate his desire to leave Tottenham this summer following his major tournament campaign with the Three Lions.
He also claims that ‘discussions are expected’ between the star striker, Spurs and Nuno before the end of his post-tournament break.
While Tottenham have no intention to sell, a stance which will be explained to the player himself, Kane is still understood to hold reservations over whether the club can indeed fulfil his ambitions.
On top of this, Jones believes that the Spurs superstar will publicly reiterate his desire to leave N17 when he receives assurances that suitors Man City are ‘serious’ about moving forward with a ‘significant’ bid.
The Verdict: Blow for Spurs…
It appears Nuno may have a huge battle on his hands to keep Kane at Tottenham this summer.
A disastrous start to his reign would be failing to keep hold of a forward who was pivotal to Spurs’ 2020/2021 campaign and by some way their most impressive player.
Averaging a phenomenal 3.9 shots on goal per 90, more than any other player in the Premier League (WhoScored), Kane also bagged a head-turning 23 goals and 14 assists over 35 English top flight appearances (WhoScored).
Indeed, news that he is expected to reiterate his desire to leave comes as a possibly devastating blow for Nuno as he begins his reign at Spurs.
