Darren Bent believes that rumoured transfer target Diego Costa could not play alongside Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur were linked with a move to the former Chelsea forward, who has just a year to run on his contract at Atletico Madrid (Daily Star).

The Spanish outfit are said to be open to willing to let him leave for a decent price rather than run the risk of losing him for free.

Bent claims that Costa is better suited to act as a back-up to the England international and urged the North Londoners to get him if the 31-year-old is happy to provide cover.

The former Spurs forward believes that Kane is better suited playing upfront on his own and interlinking with wide players such as Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura, rather than operating as a partnership and having less space to move into.

Costa has previously worked with Mourinho during their time together at Stamford Bridge.
