Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent has urged his old club to go for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku if Harry Kane foliage this summer..
Lukaku’s £97.5m move to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan hasn’t gone according to plan, with the Belgium international admitting year that is last which he was pining for a go back to San Siro.
Kane’s exit from Tottenham wasn’t given last summer, so the England captain is still associated with a move somewhere else as Spurs get ready to stop one more season trophyless..
The Lilywhites are pressing for a go back to the Champions League under Antonio Conte, but Bent considers that Lukaku will be the right match for the Blues if Kane does head everywhere else.
“As long as Antonio Conte’s there, I do not believe Harry Kane will go wherever. But in case worse concerned even worse along with Harry Kane did leave, plus go elsewhere, in case they is able to grab Lukaku, you have noticed what Conte have from Romelu Lukaku,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“Even down to the nutrition of his, because that was the very best I have already seen him appear, last season and also at the beginning of the time period. In case there was clearly a chance and Conte and kane leaves is able to grab Lukaku, I would go out all day long to get it, all day. I believe as a person who has a lot of Premier League experience, there ‘d be nobody much better to change Harry Kane..
‘I feel they are different in regards to players, Harry Kane dropping in and [is] technically a far better footballer, but Lukaku will be a sufficient replacement, definitely with what he did with Conte already. Thus, I would.”
Lukaku registered twenty four goals and ten assists under Conte during Inter Milan’s title winning 2020 21 season but has just amassed twelve goals in thirty six matches for Chelsea this term.
Kane, meanwhile, has scored twenty two times and also provided 9 assists in forty three matches for Tottenham this word and continues to be under contract in North London until 2024..
