Spurs Star Leads England Shirt Sales Ahead Of Euro 2016

Sales of England National Team squad shirts with the name of Harry Kane on the back have rocketed since Roy Hodgson’s preliminary England squad was announced, a study carried out by UKSoccershop has revealed.

The study shows that Harry Kane shirts have outsold any other England player’s in the lead up to England’s Euro 2016 campaign, which begins in France on Saturday evening with a game against Russia, but Jamie Vardy’s shirt has also proved to be a popular choice, with Vardy taking 35% of the striker shirt sales since the kit release.

Marcus Rashford has also found his way onto the back of 25% of striker shirts since his surprise inclusion in the preliminary squad off the back of the good form he has shown at Manchester United.

However, Spurs star Harry Kane has sold the most shirts out of the whole squad since the preliminary squad announcement, with 22% of people choosing to have his name on the back of their shirt. Jack Wilshere has sold the second most with 20% of the shirt sporting his name, followed closely by Marcus Rashford with 15%. Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has taken 12% of the sales. Spurs young talent Dele Alli has sold the eighth most, with 4% after a more than successful debut season at Tottenham.

Spurs Set To Face Competition For Premier League Striker

Tottenham are interested in signing Watford striker Troy Deeney reports from The Sun last week claimed, but The Telegraph suggest that they will have to fight off competition from the Premier League champions Leicester City if they are to sign their summer target.

The Telegraph claim that Leicester are lining up a bid for the Tottenham target in order to bolster their attacking options ahead of their Premier League title defence, which begins in August.

Leicester could be about to lose their star man Jamie Vardy to Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal, who reportedly have offered the Englishman a contract that will see him earn in excess of £100,000 per week. However, The Telegraph suggest that Leicester will make a move for Deeney, regardless of whether Vardy moves to Arsenal or not.

Mauricio Pochettino on the other hand will be looking to strengthen his options this summer to provide support for Harry Kane up front, with Clinton N’Jie far from providing anywhere near enough goals in an injury-hit season for the Cameroon international.

Spurs of course will be looking to improve squad depth as they be playing in the Champions League after a third placed finish last term.

It is thought that it will take a bid of £15m upwards to tempt Watford into accepting an offer for the striker who struck thirteen times last season for the Hornets.

The striker, standing at six-feet tall, would be a big asset for Spurs, should they be successful in their pursuit for the 27-year-old. Not only does he having a good goal scoring record at Watford and at Walsall, his previous club, but he also has experience of the Premier League on his side. This means that splashing out £15m upwards on the striker would not be as bigger risk as it would be splashing the cash on somebody from overseas, who is not going to be a guaranteed hit in the Premier League, which previous signings have suggested.

Spurs will be looking to challenge once again for the Premier League title, after falling short last season, and Troy Deeney would give Mauricio Pochettino a much needed alternative to Harry Kane if the Golden Boot winner was to come off the boil or be hit with injury.
