Harry Kane to Liverpool: Ian Wright urges club to sign Spurs striker

Ian Wright wants Liverpool to join the race for Harry Kane as momentum continues to build over a potential move to arch-rivals Manchester United.

It seems that just as the noise surrounding Kane had finally shrunk to a whisper, the fast approaching summer transfer window has reignited the fire of speculation as to where the Englishman will play his football next season.

It’s no secret he tried to force a move away from north London last summer. The desired destination was Manchester City, the club he deemed best fit to satisfy his desire for trophies, but now it seems the most likely destination could be the red side of Manchester.

That is, unless, another European giant swooped in and took him from under United’s nose. Kane has struggled through a difficult season by his own very high standards – finding the back of the net 12 times in the league so far is hardly vintage Kane – yet seven goals in his last seven might turn a few heads back in his direction.

Ian Wright certainly sees it that way: “You can see why teams would want him [Harry Kane], any team in the world would want him. Just look at his finishing and his hunger and his consistency.”, he told the Kelly and Wrighty show.

“When he does finally retire, you just hope he’s won something. I hope he can win something because he deserves it. He looks happier now but he has a big decision to make.”

It seems that Wright, though, believes Liverpool would be a more fitting destination and talked up the idea of an attacking trident that included Kane in a Firmino-esc capacity.

Ian Wright urges Liverpool to sign Harry Kane

“Imagine Harry Kane at Liverpool… If I had the capability of getting Kane and putting him in Liverpool’s side with [Mohamed] Salah, or [Sadio] Mane or [Luis] Diaz and playing as the number nine, dropping deep and doing his stuff…

“It won’t be how Firmino does it, those lovely bit of skills and stuff, but Kane can drop in and help create because the two could run behind. If it was available to me, I would definitely look at it because it’s Harry Kane, and he will score.

“People talk about Firmino and the fact he doesn’t score enough goals, he misses too many chances. Harry Kane doesn’t miss those chances.”

He’s not wrong, the prospect of adding Kane to what is an already blistering Liverpool attack ought to strike fear into the hearts of many of their Premier League rivals.

And with Manchester City favourites to land Erling Haaland, it might be the perfect recipe for the Reds to fight fire with fire. Although, admittedly, it would be one of the most shocking transfers in Premier League history.

Nevertheless, how might Klopp’s men line up next season should the England captain make the sensational switch to Merseyside:

That is some team.

The question is: who’s taking the penalties Salah or Kane?
