Harry Kane raves about two reported Tottenham Hotspur targets

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino gestures during the UEFA Champions League Final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on June 1, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane may well be hoping that Mauricio Pochettino adds more quality to his squad this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has raved about reported targets Donny van de Beek and Frenkie de Jong on Sky Sports, during their live coverage of the Nations League.

The Daily Mail claims that Spurs want to sign Van De Beek for £45 million, while De Jong admitted to Sky Sports that he nearly joined Spurs before picking Barcelona.

And Kane is clearly a big fan of the two players who Mauricio Pochettino would like at White Hart Lane.


“They’re obviously good players, they’ve had great seasons,” Kane admitted. “I got to watch them play from the sidelines. You can see they’re quality.”

Tottenham did have first hand experience of playing against the pair this season, when Pochettino’s side met Ajax in the Champions League.

Van De Beek scored a well placed finish in the first leg, but they could not stop Tottenham from progressing to the final.

Spurs have not made a signing for well over a year now, but are expected to finally make additions this summer.

Pochettino is thought to have money to spend, as he looks to improve the options available to him at White Hart Lane next season.
