The Sun have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing moves for Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings if Harry Kane departs this summer.
Speculation over Kane’s future has dominated the headlines since the striker’s admission that he will have a conversation with Daniel Levy about his future.
However, leaving Spurs is unlikely to prove straightforward for the England captain, who still has three years left to run on his contract.
The Sun have now claimed that Daniel Levy is hopeful that if anybody can persuade Kane to stay, it will be Mauricio Pochettino, who the North London club are hopeful of reappointing.
However, it is explained that the Argentine’s return is unlikely to guarantee that the striker will want to stay put.
The club’s recruitment team are thus said to have drafted a contingency plan in case the 27-year-old leaves the club, with Watkins and Ings both on their list of potential replacements.

If Kane does leave, we are certainly not going to replace him with just one player. We would likely have to bring in 2 or 3 goalscorers to share the load of what the 27-year-old has delivered consistently for the past 7 seasons.
Ings and Watkins are both decent shouts but I do not see us signing both players since they are fairly similar. It would make sense to go for one of the two along with a stereotypical centre-forward like a Belotti or Calvert-Lewin.
