Tottenham forward Lucas Moura has warned the club’s hierarchy that Harry Kane will not be easy to replace if the club decides to cash in on him this summer.
The British press has been filled with speculation over Kane’s future over the last few weeks.
While some reports have suggested that Tottenham will be willing to cash in on the 26-year-old if they receive a £200 million offer for his services this summer (Daily Mail), others have suggested that the club have no intention of moving the striker on (Football.London).
Some Spurs fans fear that the Tottenham chairman might decide that a substantial offer for the England captain might be too good to turn down but Lucas Moura is under no illusions as to how much of a loss the striker will be for the side.
While he admitted that the decision was for Kane to make, he insisted that Jose Mourinho and the players are extremely keen for him to stick around.
When asked about the speculation surrounding Kane’s future, Moura told Sky Sports: “It’s hard to speak about the future, about a negotiation because it’s a personal decision.
“I’m sure that every season Tottenham receive offers for Harry Kane.
“It’s not me who has to decide, but of course I want to play with him in the next season. I want to stay with him because he’s very important for us and it’s not easy to find a player like him.
“Everyone knows he’s a big player. He’s very important for us, he’s our striker and scores almost every game.
“I’m sure that Mourinho wants to keep him. He counts on him for the rest of the season as well as for the next one.”

Kane will certainly be irreplaceable, not just for what he brings to us on the pitch with his vision, hold up-play and goal-scoring ability, but also for what his influence, leadership and authority off the pitch. In many respects, he is Mr.Tottenham right now and I’m sure Levy will do everything in his power to ensure he stays in North London for the foreseeable future.
