Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes that Daniel Levy will be playing a dangerous game by hanging on to Harry Kane this summer if the striker does not sign a new contract.

Sky Sports reported last week that Tottenham do not plan on listening to offers for Kane this summer irrespective of whether the striker commits his future to the club.

The report asserted that Spurs are prepared for the possibility of the 29-year-old’s future being unresolved heading into the next January transfer window.

Fabrizio Romano revealed on Monday that Tottenham’s full focus is now on sorting out their managerial situation, with Kane’s future having been put on the back burner by the club for the moment (CaughtOffside).

However, O’Rourke believes that it would be a major gamble for the Lilywhite hierarchy to not sell the England captain when the transfer market opens as they would be risking losing out on a massive transfer fee of around  £100m

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “It’s going to be a huge summer ahead for Tottenham and Harry Kane, there’s going to be lots of speculation about his future.

“He’ll have just over one year left to run on his contract as well, so it’s a dangerous game by Tottenham if they do decide not to sell in the summer and they don’t agree a new contract with Kane as he could potentially leave for free in 2024.

“That would be a huge blow to Tottenham because they’d be missing out on probably close to £100 million if they did decide to sell in the summer as well.”

There is no doubt that it will be a gamble on Tottenham’s part to hold on to Kane even if he does not sign a new deal in the hope that the striker will change his mind next season.

The uncertainty surrounding the striker’s future makes it even more crucial that Spurs get their managerial appointment right in the summer as the club cannot afford another mediocre season.
