Worse case scenario: who could Spurs buy to replace Kane?

Fresh from his exploits of firing England through multiple knockout rounds of the European Championships this summer—maybe even to the final—Harry Kane is once again the name that’s dominating the headlines. 

It’s with a tinge of anxiety that Spurs fans watch their hero find his form again, if he ever lost it, knowing that the world is watching once more, silently eyeing the England man up, wondering how he’d look in their club shirt. Every big swinging giant on the continent will now be looking over their balance sheets, deciding if they can juggle the numbers enough to justify a monstrous bid.

If Kane does make good of his supposed promise this transfer window, and looks to pastures new and glorious, who might Spurs be able to extract from the market to fill the gaping void of his departure? No taller order could there be.

Here’re three options:

The realist

With the potential Kane fee likely to breach the £100m mark, it seems rational that the money will be spent on a number of replacement attacking options. A forward for all seasons, rather than one bonafide superstar. One such variety of striker might be Czech Republic and Bayer Leverkusen’s Patrick Schick. Currently joint-top scorer at Euro 2020 with Cristiano Ronaldo, the former-Roma hitman has been a revelation this summer, impressing fans of the best AU online casino with his strength, agility and dead-eyed left foot. His barnstorming 50-yard strike against Scotland will live long in the memory.

The outside shot

Alexander Isak has already played in the Bundesliga, La Liga and Eredivisie, despite only being 21 years old. After an impressive 16 goals in 33 game season with Real Sociedad in 2020/21, and a series of eye-catching displays for Sweden at the Euros, there’s no doubt a number of big clubs will be taking more than just a casual look at Isak this summer. Would it be too much to ask of a 21-year-old to fill the boots of Harry Kane? Would Sociedad’s £35m asking prove too much of a risk. Perhaps, but there’s no denying Isak is one of Europe’s most exciting talents.

The fantasy

It couldn’t happen, could it? No, probably not. The smartest of smart money would bank on real money slots online and Man City being the final destination for Erling Braut Haaland, Dortmund’s Norwegian phenomenon. With a frankly obscene 57 goals in 59 games for the German club so far, across one-and-a-half seasons, there isn’t a single big club in Europe who wouldn’t want the Nordic Terminator on their team. 

A frightening mix of pace, technique, brute force—with a thunderous, Thor’s hammer of a left foot—makes Haaland perhaps the hottest property on the planet. The only stumbling block for Spurs is their lack of Champions League football. Oh, and the small matter of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man City, PSG, Chelsea, Bayern and about 20 other clubs being ahead of them in the queue. Other than that…
