Revealed: Why Tottenham will be finished if Chelsea finally sign Harry Kane
Kane is Tottenham’s record scorer and still has years ahead of him to beat Alan Shearer’s highest scoring record in the Premier League.
Kane has said he’d leave at the end of the season in search of silverware, and Paul Merson has admitted that Tottenham will be finished if they let Kane leave at the end of the season.
He told Daily Star: “Tottenham are finished if they let Kane leave the club. I’m shocked at the timing of this, with Kane saying he wants out.
“To me, he must have something lined up, or else why do it now? It’s a nightmare scenario for Spurs because they’ve been here before with Gareth Bale.
“They got a record fee for him and bought loads of players to replace him, but it just didn’t work.
“Even if Spurs get £120m for Kane and spend it well, I still don’t know how you replace his 22 goals and 13 assists this season. It would leave a massive hole – and you can guarantee Heung-min Son would be next out the door.
“It’s a domino effect. It’s over for Spurs if Kane leaves. Without Kane they have no chance of finishing top four next season.”
