Five strikers Tottenham could sign to replace Harry Kane including Antoine Griezmann, Gabriel Jesus and Anthony Martial

TOTTENHAM are on the brink of losing star man Harry Kane this summer – and will now be forced to desperately scramble for a replacement.

Spurs supremo Daniel Levy finally agreed to let the 27-year-old England star join a Premier League rival.

Kane requested a summer move as early as May with Manchester City now believed to be readying a £160million move.

Pep Guardiola and Co are set to offer the Three Lions striker a £400,000-a-week deal.

But for Tottenham they will have to consider where to reinvest that £160m.

Son Heung-min, 29, has already pledged his commitment to the club by penning a new deal, running until the end of the 2024-25 season.

Having forged such a prolific partnership with Kane, Son will be hoping for another star man to link-up with.

We take a look at FIVE strikers set to be on the move this summer who may consider Tottenham…


BARCELONA are keen to offload the France striker as they aim to make £441m-worth of cuts to fall within new salary restrictions.

Griezmann, 30, has been linked with a return to Atletico Madrid – potentially as part of a swap deal involving Saul Niguez.

And it's also claimed the Frenchman is keen to stay in Spain – despite offers from Italy and England.

However, a move to Tottenham could be an enticing option for the Barca ace.

Griezmann earns around £345,000 a week at the Nou Camp, which will likely put Spurs off.

But if they can come to an agreement over a wage cut, Griezmann could be just the ready-made star needed to barely miss a beat in Kane's absence.


THE Manchester United striker, 25, has also been linked with a move away this summer.

The ex-Monaco man has struggled as a centre-forward in recent seasons, most-often deployed on the wing.

With Edinson Cavani committing to the club for another season, Martial's options through the middle will be limited.

Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford will also fight for minutes through the middle but are also options out wide – along with £73m new arrival Jadon Sancho.

Martial's time at Old Trafford could be up – with Solskjaer believed to have put him on the transfer list due to his poor attitude.

And Tottenham could gamble on giving him a fresh start in London with the hope he rediscovers his top form.


THE Man City star, 24, has been linked with a summer move away despite Sergio Aguero's exit, because of the impending arrival of Kane.

Jesus is set to stay at the Etihad but City do need to sell in order to raise funds to sign Kane and Jack Grealish in a £225m double-swoop.

The likes of Bernardo Silva, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Jesus have all been named as potential leavers.

And Juventus-target Jesus to Spurs could prove a perfect combination for both parties.

The Brazilian knows regular first-team football is just what he needs to take the next step in his career.

And Spurs will likely want a striker with decent Premier League – or at least Big Five- experience.

Jesus has scored 50 goals in 131 Premier League games – with most appearances coming from the bench.


CHELSEA are set to sell Abraham, 23, this summer after he slipped down the pecking order under Thomas Tuchel last season.

The Blues are also chasing a new striker, with Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski linked.

Abraham has bags of Premier League experience with 26 goals in 89 top-flight games.

Abraham earned a regular spot in the England squad early in 2019-20 after a red-hot start to the season – scoring in the 7-0 Euro 2020 qualifying drubbing of Montenegro.

But after falling out of favour at Stamford Bridge, he's been linked with a move to Spurs' North London rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham could – and perhaps should – look to gazump their arch-enemies in a deal that could cost £40m to replace Kane.


VALUED at just £20m, Ings could prove a low-cost alternative to Kane.

Tottenham have reportedly earmarked Ings as their 'top priority'.

Nuno played a 4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 in the pre-season friendly win over Colchester.

But it's also believed the ex-Wolves boss could look to implement a 3-5-2 in North London, with Ings potentially arriving as well as another name on this list.

Should Spurs fall short in their hunt of Griezmann, Martial, Jesus and Abraham, they will still be getting a proven Premier League striker.

Ings has scored 55 goals in 140 games and has been in red-hot form since joining Southampton.

Kane may prove irreplaceable, but alongside the likes of Son and the incoming Bryan Gil, Ings could be a perfect fit.
