Could Tottenham have an attacking reshuffle in January?
Whilst Spurs were desperate to keep hold of Kane, his form and attitude this season may make Levy think again, should a major bid come in for him in January. Although they won’t admit it publicly, City’s sale of Ferran Torres could indicate that the title chasers still want to add Kane.
Kane turns 29 in July, so this could be the last chance for Levy to cash in majorly on his star asset. As much as it would be great to keep Kane at the club, the reality is that an unhappy Kane is good for nobody. He’s scored just 4 Premier League goals in 16 games this season, well below his usual numbers. He’s also managed just 1 assist in all competitions.
Last season Kane managed 37 goals or assists in 35 Premier League outings.
And it could be time for the club to move on from him and sign up a younger striker and start to move on.
One option Spurs could move for is £45million-rated Jonathan David, after it was revealed by his agent that he wants to leave Lille at the end of the season.
“For us, the goal is to finish the season in Lille, but it will be his last season there for several reasons,” David’s agent, Mavromaras, told Radio Canada.
“I think the Premier League is a good option for him. I think that he likes Spain a lot also because he likes the feeling of the ball and the very technical players.
The Mirror are linking both Arsenal and Liverpool as possible suitors in the Premier League – but if Spurs were to lose Kane, they too would become a major candidate.
David is just 21-years-old, but has already made himself one of the main strikers in European football, currently the top scorer in Ligue 1 amongst immense competition with 12 goals in 15 starts and 4 sub appearances.
He’s also scored a mightily impressive 18 goals in 24 caps for his country, Canada.
Like Kane, David thrives in a deep forward role, helping to link the midfield and attack.
