Former Spurs midfielder, Paul Stewart, has warned Tottenham that they would need to spend at least £300 million to remain competitive with the other big clubs if Harry Kane is sold this summer. 

Harry Kane picked up the Premier League Golden Boot for the third time, as well as the playmaker award, last season and has made it clear that he has desires to win a trophy soon. 

Manchester City have reportedly named Kane as one of their top transfer targets this summer following the departure of iconic frontman Sergio Aguero to Barcelona.

The Sun even reported that Kane could join Pep Guardiola at City for £160million, but the Premier League champions have apparently dismissed the report as nonsense. 

So far in this transfer window, Spurs have signed Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on a season-long loan with an option to make the deal permanent when certain clauses are met.

The other incoming at Spurs was Spanish youngster Bryan Gil from Sevilla, with Erik Lamela heading to Southern Spain. 

Stewart believes that Daniel Levy will need to give Nuno Espirito Santo total freedom to spend big if Kane departs the club this summer. 

In an exclusive interview with the Football FanCast, Stewart had this to say: “If they get £160million for Kane, they’ve got to spend £300million at least to get a team that’s going to compete, but that’s not Daniel Levy’s style.”
