Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle believes that the club must look to invest any transfer funds wisely should they decide to accept an offer for Harry Kane.

Sky Sports claimed last month that Manchester City had tabled a £100million bid for the Spurs striker which also included the option of adding players as a make-weight in the deal.

Having decided to sign seven players for more than £100million with the money they received for Gareth Bale in 2013 when he joined Real Madrid (The Sun), Hoddle believes that Spurs should adopt a similar approach this time around.

Hoddle believes that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy must think hard about how they should look to strengthen multiple areas of the team, rather than looking to directly replace Kane with one player.

The Spurs legend believes that Levy would want a huge fee if he was prepared to sanction Kane’s exit and the players that City are prepared to trade may not be to Nuno’s liking.

“He’s got a three-year contract left so it’s not like he’s not at the end of the his time and has options,” Hoddle told a Betfair event.

“If he is going to leave, Daniel Levy will be after top, top dollar.

“The players that might be exchanged may not be what Nuno wants. If he does go, it will have to be for a lot of money because it needs a rebuild at Tottenham,” he added.

“They should not go out and buy a player to replace Harry with a player worth £100m. No, we’ll need two centre-backs, a midfielder and a striker.

“This is the issue the club have got. But that pot needs to be built up and this is what Nuno will know too.

“Unfortunately for Tottenham fans, this should have happened two years ago when they nearly won the Champions League.

“Daniel Levy will know what figure he wants to get and if a club hits that number, you know he [Kane] would move. If he leaves for the right money, the fans will understand.”
