It’s looking increasingly likely that Harry Kane will eventually leave the club just before the start of the English Premier League (EPL). Romelu Lukaku is one of the names on Tottenham Hotspur’s list of potential replacements.
Kane, who began playing for Tottenham in 2013-2014, is trophyless despite a career that spans more than a decade. Kane, who has always been torn on whether to leave the club, was actively courted by Bayern Munich this summer. Local media outlets, including Sky Sports, have reported that Kane is expected to travel to Germany to finalize the deal by the afternoon of the 11th local time.
With Tottenham in desperate need of a striker, one of the first names that came to mind was Lukaku. The 30-year-old Lukaku, who is the same age as Kane, was once a star in his own right. He peaked in the EPL with Everton in the 2016-17 season, scoring 25 league goals. He then spent two seasons at Manchester United, where he performed well, but not as well as expected. In 2019, he moved to Italy’s Inter Milan, where he scored over 20 league goals in back-to-back seasons and played a key role in the league title.
However, Lukaku’s recent form has been less than stellar. He was transferred to Chelsea on his own terms and then loaned back to Inter, and both his form and goalscoring have plummeted. Even at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he failed to score a single goal due to his poor finishing, contributing to Belgium’s early exit.
Lukaku is currently in search of a new club after leaving Chelsea and has been linked with a move to Juventus after his former club, Inter, refused to budge, making him a natural target for Tottenham. 안전놀이터
British and Italian media outlets, including the Daily Mail, have reported that Tottenham could make a move for Lukaku. With most of the star strikers who were expected to change clubs in the summer transfer window having already moved on or re-signed with their existing clubs, the club’s options are limited, which is why they may turn to Lukaku. Lukaku’s talent is undoubtedly there, but his attitude and recent form have been an issue.
