Paul Merson told Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports that Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, has just made a ‘come and get me’ plea following his recent comments.
After Tottenham’s defeat in the League Cup final to Manchester City, Kane told Sky Sports that he wants to win ‘team trophies’ and be competing at the very top.
A man of Kane’s ability, and with the season he has had, he shouldn’t be anywhere near where Tottenham are currently competing.
And when Kane’s recent comments were relayed to the ex-Arsenal midfielder, Merson, this is the response he issued.
“The way I would read into that is he wants to go,” said Merson. “It is a ‘come and get me’.
“I saw today that Robert Lewandowski might be available. You are talking about the three best centre-forwards in Haaland, Kane and Lewandowski could all be up for sale this summer, in a world where there’s not a lot of money around with everything that’s happening.
“It will be interesting. People say ‘Oh, you only say it because you play for Arsenal’. But Tottenham’s a big club. A very good club. They have one of the best stadiums in the world.
“It will be his decision, at the end of the day. He has to take into consideration everything. He’s got to take into his consideration his wife, his kids, his family, his mum and dad. Everything. His wife’s mum and dad. I think it’s a hard decision to make.”
It’s going to take a serious wad of cash to take Kane away from North London and given his love for the club, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he stays this summer.
Unless Manchester City and PSG came knocking for his talents – and they have the cash to splash – then not many others will be able to meet the demands of the stubborn Daniel Levy.
The Spurs chairman has to show Kane, with the manager he brings in, that he wants to push his team forward, but he also has to do it in the transfer market.
Otherwise, it’s not just the Spurs fans he’s letting down but Kane also and what he is providing for this club.
