Former Tottenham goalkeeper, Paul Robinson has claimed that £100m plus Aymeric Laporte would be a good deal for the North London club if they sell Harry Kane to Man City this summer (Football Insider).
It has already been reported that Man City sent Tottenham an opening bid of £100m for Kane earlier this month, with the Daily Star even mentioning that players such as Laporte and Raheem Sterling could be used as makeweights.
Robinson has now argued that £100m plus Sterling or Laporte would be a great deal for Spurs, adding that Tottenham are in desperate need of a class centre-back.
Tottenham struggled in the centre of defence last season with sub-par performances from Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld.
Robinson said: “There is talk of £100million plus Sterling or Laporte.
To me, that is looking like a great deal for Spurs.
“Laporte is a world-class centre-half and we know that Spurs are in desperate need of a centre-half. Laporte is the main player at the back for Spain now and he has done brilliantly since he moved to Manchester City.
“Harry Kane was at the peak of his powers last season but he is 28 and has had his fair share of injury problems. You will probably only get 25 games out of him a season for the next four years.
“If you can get £100million plus one of City’s top players then it is a good deal for Spurs.“
Spurs Web Opinion:
As I keep saying, Harry Kane will only be sold this summer for £150m cash, with most of it coming up front. Anything else and I’m sure that Levy would prefer to wait another year and maybe sell him next summer.
