Tottenham: 'Scary to think' of Spurs being without 68-cap star

Tottenham without talisman Harry Kane is “scary” to think about, says Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.

The 28-year-old, who has really impressed in recent weeks, is currently being linked with Premier League rivals Manchester United.

What is the latest news involving Kane?

According to The Athletic, United are interested in signing Kane this summer as they look to bring in a new striker.

It remains to be seen who their next manager will be, but the same report states that they want the England captain regardless of who Ralf Rangnick’s successor is.

Kane was in devastating form before the international break, grabbing two assists in the London derby win over West Ham after going on a run that had seen him score against Brighton, Manchester United, Everton and Leeds United.

He will now be looking to add to that when Antonio Conte’s men return to action in the home tie versus Newcastle United.

What has Bridge said about Kane and Tottenham?

Bridge does not want to imagine what a Tottenham side without Kane would look like as he continues to be linked with a move away from the club.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the Sky Sports journalist said: “It’s still, for me, scary to think of Tottenham without Harry Kane.”

Who could replace Kane at Tottenham?

Like last summer when United’s rivals Manchester City came knocking, you would expect Daniel Levy to put up a real fight to keep hold of the club’s star player.

However, it looks like Spurs are drawing up contingency plans just in case the 68-cap England international does end up departing.

The Athletic claims super-agent Jorge Mendes has a good relationship with Levy and has held talks over Benfica’s Darwin Nunez and Roma’s Tammy Abraham.

Both players have performed exceptionally well this season, with Nunez scoring 26 goals in all competitions and Abraham netting 23.

Do you know this obscure Tottenham footballer from the 1990s?

They are just two options Tottenham could consider, but the priority obviously has to be keeping hold of Kane.

Not only is the Spurs star an elite goalscorer, but he has also become an elite playmaker, which was clear to see in his last outing against West Ham.

His 14 assists last term were also the most in the Premier League, ensuring that he claimed the Playmaker of the Season award to go with his Golden Boot.

Losing all of that and to a top-four rival would be a stinging blow for Conte and Tottenham.
