Jorge Mendes is working to try and secure Tottenham Hotspur a replacement should they sell Harry Kane this summer, with The Athletic reporting that Tammy Abraham and Darwin Nunez have been approached.
Kane’s future is likely to be a talking point once again over the coming months. Of course, he was heavily linked with a move away from North London last summer.
The Athletic reports that Manchester United would love to sign Kane. Ed Woodward informed Daniel Levy last year that they were interested in the striker, but for the 2022 summer window. So it will be interesting to see if they do make a move.
Mendes can certainly see Kane leaving, it seems. The Athletic reports that the agent is working to find Tottenham a replacement should their talisman move on.
Both Nunez and Abraham have been approached and held talks with Mendes.
The Athletic reports that Mendes is working on his own accord however. He does have a good relationship with Levy and Fabio Paratici though.
It seems too soon to say whether Kane will stay at Tottenham. He clearly enjoys working under Antonio Conte. And they could yet book a return to the Champions League. However, they still have plenty to do.
If he leaves, the quality of his replacement could be pivotal for Spurs.
Both Abraham and Nunez have enjoyed outstanding seasons. Only two players in Serie A have scored more than Abraham. Meanwhile, Nunez has 20 in 22 in the Portuguese top flight.
Roma reportedly value Abraham – who has been described as ‘unbelievable’ – at £100 million. Meanwhile, Nunez has an asking price of around £67 million.
But Tottenham will know that they will have to take something of a risk no matter who comes in, should they need to replace Kane.
