The Sun are reporting that Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus could replace Harry Kane at Tottenham Hotspur.
What’s the story?
It was reported late last night by The Sun (10pm) that Kane is set to join City from Spurs.
Kane will cost £160 million in transfer fees for the Premier League champions, who will pay the England international striker £400,000 per week as salary.
The report added that City’s Brazil international striker Jesus ‘could be a replacement at Spurs’.
Gabriel Jesus for Harry Kane?
Kane is one of the best strikers in the world, and it is going to be extremely tough for Spurs to replace him.
Brazil international striker Jesus has not really done an awful lot to inspire confidence among Spurs fans that he could be the one to replace the England international.
At least, not based on stats.
The 24-year-old has scored 50 goals in 131 Premier League appearances for City.
Now, in a lot of those games, the Brazilian would have been a substitute, coming on in place of Sergio Aguero.
Perhaps the striker could grow at Spurs.
The Daily Star reported in May interest from Tottenham in the Brazil international, who is valued at £70 million.
Could Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy get £160 million for Kane plus Jesus?
Or could Jesus be part of the £160m package?
We will have to wait and see.
