Tottenham to secure Chelsea star transfer bid when Harry Kane leaves this summer

According to Liverpool’s former midfielder Danny Murphy, Tottenham should try replace their striker Harry Kane with Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham this summer.

Kane has informed Tottenham he wants to leave at the end of the season.

Chelsea are one of three Premier League clubs – Manchester Utd and Manchester City – interested in signing the England captain.

However, Murphy thinks Abraham would be the perfect replacement for the 27-year-old.

Abraham has been out of favour under Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge and has been linked with a number of other clubs in the top flight.


“I think Harry Kane is going to go to Man City,” said Murphy via talkSPORT.

“Before we were talking about Tammy Abraham and what a signing he’d be for someone like Tottenham.

“If Kane is going to go… Tammy is a goalscorer.”

Abraham finished the season as Chelsea’s joint-top scorer in all competitions despite a lack of game time in the closing weeks of the campaign.

And former City winger Trevor Sinclair claimed last week that the 23-year-old is good enough for his old club.

Sinclair said of Abraham: “I tell you who could be interested in him is Manchester City. I think he’s an elite forward.

“I think he’d suit Pep [Guardiola]’s way. He’s clinical and he’s shown that this season as he’s right up there with the top goal-scorers and he’s hardly played.”

Despite predicting Kane to join City, Murphy also thinks the 27-year-old could choose to join United instead.
