Tottenham are targeting Gent striker Gift Orban to replace Harry Kane if he joins Bayern Munich, according to reports.
Spurs and Bayern have agreed a fee for Kane reported to be €100 million (£84.6 million), with the 30-year-old now set to choose between the two clubs.
According to Sky Sports News, Kane is ‘increasingly likely’ to stay at Tottenham and snub Bayern’s advances.
But should a scenario arise where the striker does leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the coming days, new manager Ange Postecoglou will need to quickly source a replacement.
Richarlison will likely fill in for Kane in the short-term, but Spurs are also eyeing other players to come in and bolster the squad.
And they have reportedly settled on a striker that became a viral sensation for his goals earlier in the year.
Tottenham ‘want to sign Gift Orban’
According to 90min, Spurs are targeting the signing of 21-year-old Orban, who scored 22 goals in 24 appearances for Gent last season.
Three of those goals were scored in a Europa Conference League clash against Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir last season – a game in which Orban made history.
He netted a hat-trick in three minutes and 25 seconds, the fastest ever recorded in the history of UEFA club competition.
90min claim that Spurs have spoken to Orban and his representatives over a move – and they will be impressed by the way in which the forward has started the campaign.
He netted another hat-trick in a 5-0 Europa Conference League win over Polish side Pogon Szczecin on Wednesday evening.
But there has been some controversy in Belgium over the fact that Orban has been left on the bench on more than one occasion at the beginning of the season – leading manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck to clarify speculation.
He explained: “I am not a coach who immediately calls a disgruntled player to order. There is no problem between Orban and me.
“But in the meantime, everyone knows that I am a coach who rotates when I can’t rotate.”
