Chelsea should make every effort to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer, according to ex-Italian international Antonio Cassano.
The ex-Roma and Real Madrid forward was speaking about the Blues’ squad when he said that the only thing missing from Thomas Tuchel’s side was a clinical striker; something he says they could acquire by signing Kane:
“In my opinion, they can throw themselves at Kane: it would be perfect for Tuchel’s game idea. They are a team full of talents but they lack a [no] 9. Right now it’s the team that impresses me the most: I like how they play and Tuchel is among the strongest [managers] in the world. In [just] a few days, he changed the team.”
Kane’s asking price is reportedly between £150m and £175m, making him a more expensive purchase than the likes of Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku.
The England captain may well be open to moving to Stamford Bridge, as he faces up to another year without a trophy at Spurs, but the major obstacle would be Daniel Levy.
The Tottenham chairman is highly unlikely to sell Kane to a team he sees as a divisional rival, and he is not expected to budge on his price tag, even if the player signals to the club that he wants to leave.
