Spurs are interested in “remarkable” £29m-rated “monster”, he’s the perfect Kane heir – opinion

The Lilywhites might have at last found their ideal succession to a departing celebrity.

With a novel strategy that will surprise many, Tottenham Hotspur may have the solution to the dilemma brought on by Harry Kane’s hazy future.

How long is Ivan Toney’s ban?

According to FootballTransfers, Ange Postecoglou is prepared to place his trust in Ivan Toney to make a great comeback from his suspension.

The England international received a shocking eight-month ban from all football-related activity after pleading guilty to various betting crimes back in February. On January 16, 2024, he will make his comeback for Brentford, and he has since tweeted: “I now focus on returning to play the game I love next season.”

Despite all of this, Kane has been linked with a move away from north London as Bayern Munich seems to put more and more pressure on him every week. The Spurs hierarchy has since stated that Toney would make the ideal replacement, with sources indicating that a third offer in excess of €80 million (£70 million) is to be anticipated.

If the England captain leaves this summer, a transfer for the Bees’ star player should be taken into account. The desired course of action would be to hold onto their 29-year-old jewel until January, at which point they would authorize his departure and sign an unbanned Toney to take his place.

The numerous parameters surrounding this story make it one that will likely continue to evolve throughout the window.

How much is Harry Kane worth in the transfer market?

Whilst many might suggest that the £70m set to be offered represents fine value for a man with just one year left on his deal, the importance Kane has had to his side has been unparalleled.

FootballTransfers take it a step further, noting his expected Transfer Value at a lofty €87.3m (£75m). Meanwhile, his potential successor sits at just €33.8m (£29m), showcasing the financial disparity despite the gulf in quality not being too huge.

Last term, amongst all the chaos that Antonio Conte’s reign brought, he remained the one quality constant.

His tally of 30 league goals represented a sensational return, and under Postecoglou’s hopefully-stable new regime, this could even improve further.

That’s not to forget his quality on the ball as a creator either, willing to drop deep to dictate the play and forge chances for others. Few have mastered this role like him, with his 2020/21 season seeing the marksman pick up both the league’s Golden Boot and Playmaker awards.

However, last campaign was also a fine one for Toney, who maintained a 7.25 average rating that was largely upheld through his 20 league strikes.

The “remarkable” 27-year-old, in the words of his manager Thomas Frank, would match this with 0.8 vital passes per game as well since, according to Sofascore’s heatmap, he frequently occupied the left wing rather than the penalty area.

He too is clearly willing to drop in as Kane does with such success.

Even in April 2022, journalist Mark White envisioned him signing with Arsenal, claiming that he would have given the team “world-class depth,” while Bees author Billy Grant had earlier praised the English frontman as a “monster.”

It might now be their fierce enemies who strike first, ignoring his prohibition in order to secure the ideal heir to the irreplaceable Kane.
