Danny Murphy has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur may not have to spend to replace Harry Kane.
Jose Mourinho is without the services of his star striker until at least April due to his requirement to undergo surgery to repair his damaged hamstring.
Murphy has backed Heung-min Son to help fill the void left by Kane after claiming that the South Korean is able to play in a central role.
The former Spurs midfielder claimed that Daniel Levy would be taking a risk on spending a substantial amount on a foreign player who has no track record of playing in the Premier League and would likely become second fiddle to Kane once he returns to full fitness.
Son has previously stepped up to the mark in Kane’s absence, notably in last season’s Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City where he scored three times across both legs to book his side a place in the semi-final of European football’s most prestigious club competition.
“I think Son playing central is a really good replacement.”
“When he play in that role, he’s a threat.” ⚽️
