Gabriel Agbonlahor believes that Manchester City should steer clear of signing Harry Kane after claiming that the Tottenham striker will not be able to meet the demands of Pep Guardiola’s style of play.
Reports have suggested that City could make a move for Kane in the summer as they look to bring in a replacement for Sergio Aguero.
Agbonlahor questioned if England captain can press the way Guardiola demands his forwards to and if the striker’s passing game is up to the standards required at City.
talkSPORT radio host Adrian Durham also seconded the former Aston Villa striker’s claim, suggesting that Guardiola would be frustrated with the Tottenham star’s tendency to shoot on sight.
Watch what they said about Kane’s proposed move to City on talkSPORT Drive:
🥇 “Against Burnley, it was almost like watching a ‘one-man Wembley’ game.”
❌ “If you’re not making that right pass, you’re not playing under Pep Guardiola.”

This is quite possibly the most woeful take I have ever heard on talkSPORT and that is saying a lot given the kind of opinions pundits spout on the channel on a regular basis.
Not only did Kane play for five and a half years under Pochettino, who always demanded his teams to press high up the pitch but Kane’s assist number this season tells on all they need to know about his passing.
