Former Leeds United forward, Noel Whelan, has claimed that he expects clubs across Europe to queue up for Harry Kane’s signature.
Whelan is not so sure that the striker will stay put in North London for too much longer, insisting that the time is right for Kane to leave Spurs and fulfil his ambitions of winning silverware.
Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan said: “He’s at an age now where he needs to win. He’s one of the best strikers in the world and he’s got a short window to win things.
“If Tottenham can’t offer that to him, he knows he needs to move. There’s not going to be a shortage of offers.”
He also insisted that several big clubs across Europe will have been alerted by the Tottenham’s striker’s latest admission.
The former Leeds star added: “You’ll have Man United, you’ll have Man City, PSG, your two giants from Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona. Don’t tell me these people aren’t going to step in there because they are.
“If they know he’s available and he’s putting little whispers out there online, live to people saying: ‘I want to win things, if I’m not winning them here, I’m off.’
“There will be a queue. it would be mad, it would be mad the amount of offers. People will know there will be a massive bartering system going on. It will be huge.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Under normal circumstances, there is no doubt that clubs would be queuing up for Kane if he becomes available. However, we are certainly not living in normal circumstances and the suggestion that any club will be able to break the transfer record to land Kane this summer is ridiculous. In fact, I don’t expect any transfer of more £100 million to go through this summer. Most clubs will be looking for bargain deals or free transfers.
