Tottenham: Spurs eye Gabriel Jesus as Kane replacement - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

As per the Daily Mail, Tottenham are interested in signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City as they plan to swiftly replace Harry Kane.

The Lowdown: Kane drops bombshell

On Monday, Kane told Spurs that he wishes to leave the club this summer (Sky Sports), which is a huge blow to Daniel Levy and whichever manager is appointed on a permanent basis to replace Jose Mourinho.

Guess the Tottenham kit! Can you remember each year/season these Spurs jerseys are from? Let's get started with an easy one...

The north London outfit must now look for a replacement if Kane follows through on his wishes to leave.

The Latest: Spurs eye Jesus

One name on Spurs’ shortlist is believed to be Manchester City striker Jesus, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Brazil international has been targetted as a part-exchange for Kane given that a straight cash deal for the England international will be hard to come by.

The Verdict: Interesting option

Jesus has come in for criticism from portions of the City fanbase this season, but he is a striker who knows how to find the back of the net. In 192 matches for the Citizens, he has 81 goals (Transfermarkt) – an impressive record when you consider he has not always been a guaranteed starter.

Throughout his career for club and country, he has 122 goals in 284 games – there are few forwards who can boast a better strike rate at such a high level. Furthermore, City manager Pep Guardiola called him “incredible” earlier this year (The Independent).

Currently valued at £54m (Transfermarkt), an exchange between Kane and Jesus could work well for all parties. The former would get his wish to move on, while Spurs would be getting a quality, and younger, forward as part of the agreement.

In other news, Levy wants to hire this Champions League winner as Tottenham’s new manager.
