Spurs look to beat Arsenal to €70m-rated star as a potential replacement for Harry Kane

Posted by

Some of the talk about Harry Kane leaving Spurs did seem to die down in recent weeks, but it’s come back with a vengeance and they need to come up with some kind of plan to replace him.

Realistically it will be a team effort to fill the void when you look at his goals, leadership, and all-around game, but you would also expect at least one “splash” signing to at least attempt to appease the supporters.

A report from The Athletic has indicated that Arsenal are pushing hard to sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez while Fichajes reported earlier this week that he would be allowed to leave for €70m.

It’s not clear if Arsenal actually have the money to make that move and either Lacazette or Aubameyang would also need to move, but there’s an added twist to this as Goal are claiming that Lautaro is now a target for Spurs if Harry Kane does leave.

From Tottenham’s point of view the preferable situation still has to be keeping Kane at the club, but signing a young star with massive upside while also preventing him from going to Arsenal would at least be something.

His goal return has increased each year and he struck 17 times in Serie A last season so he would bring goals, but would it be enough to keep Spurs competitive?

  1. Spurs signed one of best EPL coach. If City or Man U buy him, Spurs will sign Lauturo and wont be surprise to see them add Traoré and a top CB which would put them in title race. If they make such moves, they will take EL.

    Bielsa wants Traoré and made a 30M offer. Wanted by Klopp, he may choose to play CL…

    PB at Arsenal are a board of business people as owner who has no clue of football or they would see the huge issue World sees 2 seasons: ridiculous management & no coach making us a midtable confirmed team in 18 month time.

    Even Tuchel couldnt believe it, eyeing on Arsenal job, convinced Kroenke would replace failure Arteta. Nope, Chelsea surprised him and everyone as much as Arsenal did for not jumping on such an occasion…

    I wish we had Bielsa, settle it all down, bring back orderin the House, exciting football and happy team, ambition…He deserves to step to Arsenal, Arteta at Leeds…
