David Seaman has claimed Tottenham striker Harry Kane will now be cheaper than what he was valued at in the summer due to his poor form in front of goal this season. 

The England captain’s strange form this term comes following a turbulent summer where he was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City after he made it clear to Spurs chiefs that he wanted to leave the club. 

However, chairman Daniel Levy remained firm on his intention to receive a fee worth up to £150 million for Kane, which eventually fended off the Citizens’ interest and succumbed the star forward to stay in North London. 

Since the debacle, the 28-year-old has been stranded on just one Premier League goal since mid-October with his lone tally coming in the 3-2 win over Newcastle. 

Former Arsenal goalkeeper Seaman believes last season’s Golden Boot and Playmaker award winner will have seen his transfer value diminish due to his shortcomings in front of goal, and could now be available at a cut-price for potential suitors going forward. 

On the Seaman Says podcast, co-host Lynsey Hooper said: “Not getting Kane when they did may have done City a favour because Bernardo Silva was touted as collateral that they could have gotten rid of, and he’s cemented himself now saying ‘look, sell someone else, because you need me’. 

Seaman responded: “I know what you mean, but they’ve probably done themselves a favour now, because Kane will be cheaper, he’s scored what? Just one goal this season so far?”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Although Kane’s form will be a worry for Spurs, you have to wonder whether City will actually come back in with the same interest they held in the summer. They may end up pursuing other options instead if it continues in this manner.
