‘Replace’ and ‘Harry Kane’ are words Tottenham fans won’t want to see in the same sentence. But given Kane has reportedly made clear his desire to leave the club, it is something the top brass at Spurs will need to be thinking about.
Kane has been Spurs’ top-scorer and leader of the attack ever since his breakthrough season in 2014-15. He has racked up 165 league goals and 33 assists in 243 appearances. This season, he has either scored or set up over 60% of Tottenham’s goals.
If he does leave, then, finding an adequate replacement will not be easy. But they will have to try. With Carlos Vinicius returning to Benfica at the end of this season, they may even need to bring in two central strikers to fill the gaping forward void.
How they go about that process will be key. Do they try to bring in a slew of new, slightly cheaper faces, like they did when Gareth Bale left the club in 2013? If so, they could try to sign a couple of strikers and a creative player to replace Kane’s assists. Or do they put all their eggs in the basket of a single superstar striker, splashing all or almost all of a potential Kane fee at once on someone who they hope will be capable of doing everything alone?
We’ve taken a look at seven of the potential options for the Harry Kane-shaped hole that may appear at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
