Danny Murphy has said he feels Tammy Abraham could be a good replacement for Harry Kane, should he leave Tottenham this summer.
The speculation over the future of Spurs’ top scorer is a hot topic ahead of the summer transfer window, with Manchester City and Manchester United among the clubs linked with the England captain.
Tottenham’s London rivals Chelsea have also been named as potential suitors, with Thomas Tuchel’s men in the market for another striker this summer after a season in which regular penalty taker Jorginho finished as the Blues’ top scorer in the Premier League, with seven goals.
football.london understands that Kane has not directly asked to leave the club this summer, but is growing frustrated with Tottenham’s failure to challenge for trophies, after another season that ended in disappointment as the club’s wait for silverware extended to 13 years.
And Kane did not rule out leaving Tottenham in a recent interview with former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, in which he spoke again of his desire to win trophies and the need for a conversation with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy over his future.
But while Kane’s future at Spurs remains uncertain going into the European Championships this summer, former Tottenham midfielder Danny Murphy has given his verdict on who could replace him, should the Premier League golden boot winner leave north London this summer.
“I do think that there’s a hell of a lot of business still to be done this summer,” Murphy said, speaking to Talksport.
“A lot of clubs are still losing players, not all top end. The domino effect of transfers works on all levels, not just at the £60m-£70m-£80m level, you’re talking at the £7m-£15m level.
“We were talking about Tammy Abraham. I mean what a signing he would be for someone like Tottenham.
“If [Harry] Kane’s going to go, Tammy Abraham is a goalscorer.”
