Report: £60m player is now expected to be the man to replace Harry Kane in the Tottenham team


Tottenham’s key player could be on the verge of leaving.

Harry Kane’s departure from Tottenham may only be a matter of time after the north London club accepted a bid from Bayern Munich.

Spurs will require a new number nine to captain their forward line in the absence of Kane, and many players have been rumored to be available.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, Jonathan David, and even Romelu Lukaku have all been mentioned, but intriguingly, The Standard claims that Spurs may choose to search internally for a solution.

Richarlison may be given the opportunity to replace Kane as the North London club’s first-choice striker in the upcoming campaign.

Thwould be a very risky strategy to say the least.

Look, we rate Richarlison as a player, he’s done the business at Premier League level for a number of years now, but the reality is that if Spurs did this, they would be replacing a striker who scored 30 Premier League goals last season with a striker who scored just

It doesn’t take a data analyst to tell you that this drop-off is significant.

Of course, it isn’t all doom and gloom though.

Heung-Min Son is still in the squad, and if he returns to form he’s a guaranteed source of goals, while Richarlison showed at Everton just how effective he can be when he’s trusted as a first-choice striker.

The £60m man has to improve dramatically if he is going to prove to be up to this task, but given that he’s going to be playing under a more attacking manager who clearly trusts him, maybe, just maybe, Richarlison is up to the challenge of being Spurs’ top dog.
