Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed Tottenham Hotspur could make a move for Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin if they lose Harry Kane this summer. 

There have already been several twists and turns in the Kane saga over the last few months and it remains to be seen whether the striker will still be at Tottenham come the end of the month.

The 28-year-old is currently isolating in the Spurs Lodge at Hotspur Way and is expected to meet with Nuno Espirito Santo for the first time today. 

Reports linking Kane with a move to Manchester City show no signs of slowing down, even though Tottenham have maintained the England captian is not for sale.

Should Spurs lose their talisman, the club will, no doubt, have their work cut out in finding suitable replacements.

The likes of Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez and Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic have been mooted as targets for the North London club over recent days.

O’Rourke has now revealed that Calvert-Lewin, who struck 15 goals in all competitions for Everton last season, is also of interest to Spurs. 

The journalist told The Football Terrace: “I still wonder that if Kane does go, possibly a move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Everton. 

“He’s definitely on Tottenham’s radar. They see him as a potential number nine and Tottenham see him as potential replacement material.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

While Calvert-Lewin is nowhere as good a finisher as Kane and does not have the same quality on the ball, he is an excellent target man, who is able to run the channels better than the England captian.

So, he certainly would not be the worst replacement if we do lose the 28-year-old this summer. However, Everton will likely demand upwards of £50m and I would rather see us spend that amount on Vlahovic, who has a much higher ceiling than the Toffees star.
