Frank McAvennie has suggested that Tottenham could look to sell Harry Kane in January after claiming the striker’s current relationship with the club is ‘toxic’. 

The England captain has struggled to hit any sort of form for Spurs this season, following a summer full of transfer speculation.

Kane allegedly informed Spurs chiefs of his desire to leave the club with Manchester City a touted destination, but Pep Guardiola’s side could not successfully push through a move for the striker. 

Although he has scored six goals this season, he has since seen his form in the Premier League drop off massively, where he is still yet to open his account for the campaign. 

Former West Ham striker McAvennie believes Kane is still being affected by the rumours surrounding his future over the summer and claims all is still not well between him and the club. 

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Everything at Tottenham comes down to Kane. This question about Kane leaving will hang over them for years. It’s going to be worse when they are losing and he’s not scoring.

“It’s haunting them. If they don’t do well and they fall down the table, questions will be asked.

“It could force Levy’s hand in January. Nuno needs that money to reinvest in the squad.”

Touching on a potential move in the winter, McAvennie added: “They have no midfield. Kane is at the centre of all of this. I can see a January transfer for him, I really can.

“I think it’s toxic now. The relationship, the motivation, it’s not there.

“I said he needed to leave in the summer and I stand by that. It’s for the best.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Daniel Levy will more than likely reject all interest of a move for Kane in January, which is a period in the season where it is hard to sort out a replacement. No doubt the summer will bring about rumours of a move away again, though.
