Report: Spurs now ready to smash transfer record to sign Kane replacement THEspursweb

Football Insider have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are willing to smash their transfer record to secure a top-tier striker following Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich.This morning, we relayed a report from The Athletic, which suggested that Spurs had been planning for the contingency of Kane’s departure for a year.

The report explained that the club had decided that rather than securing one big-name replacement, it would be more prudent to sign a couple of forwards to give Ange Postecoglou more options for his fluid frontline.

It was suggested that the Lilywhites could thus go after a young, up-and-coming striker such as Gent’s Gift Orban.

Spurs want one top-tier striker to replace Harry Kane

However, Football Insider have now contradicted that claim, insisting that Tottenham want to secure a ‘A-list replacement’ for Kane.

The report adds that the club’s search for a big-name centre-forward is set to go into overdrive over the next couple of weeks.

It is alleged that the North London club are even prepared to shatter their previous record outlay – the £54m they paid to Lyon for Tanguy Ndombele back in 2019.

It is not a matter of spending big money but rather about identifying the right sort of player. If someone like Osimhen was available and willing to come to Spurs, it would even make sense to spend the entire Kane fee on the Nigerian.

However, spending £60m-£70m on players such as Dusan Vlahovic or Randal Kolo Muani would entail a lot of risk as there is no guarantee that they would be able to succeed in the Premier League.

Gary Lineker has just urged Tottenham Hotspur to sign Brighton and Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson to replace Harry Kane this summer.

Spurs confirmed this morning that their star striker has left the club to join Bayern Munich. He will be a huge miss, and Ange Postecoglou will have to replace him.

Gary Lineker tells Tottenham sign Evan Ferguson as Harry Kane replacement

Tottenham Hotspur have already been linked with a move to sign Evan Ferguson, and Lineker has just endorsed it again.The 18-year-old has been incredible for Brighton whenever he has played. He just looks like the perfect striker, and the fact that he’s so young means he will only get better in the coming years.

With Kane gone, Tottenham need to look for a long-term replacement. There’s no point signing someone like Romelu Lukaku now – it’s just not worth it.

After watching Brighton beat Luton Town this afternoon, Lineker is convinced Ferguson would be a great option to replace Kane at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He tweeted: “Evan Ferguson scores in Fergie time. He’s a born goalscorer.

“If I was in charge of recruitment at @SpursOfficial I’d take a punt on him as Kane’s replacement. Apologies to @OfficialBHAFC fans.”

If Tottenham want a young centre-forward with all the qualities you need in a striker, Evan Ferguson is perfect.

We don’t how Brighton find these young players, but the Irishman is definitely another one who they will sell for an outrageous amount of money one day.

Roberto De Zerbi would obviously love to keep hold of him, but if Tottenham go in with a huge offer, there is a chance they could reluctantly let the teenager go.

In our opinion, Ferguson would be amazing for Tottenham.
