Chelsea president, Roman Abramovich takes £150m decision on top striker for Thomas Tuchel’s squad
Chelsea have seemingly not diminished their interest in Tottenham Hotspur talisman, Harry Kane, as they continue to search for a new striker.
According to Goal, Kane is still a ‘primary target’ for the Blues, along with Borussia Dortmund’s young king, Erling Haaland.
The Spurs centre-forward has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for some time, although any kind of deal between the London rivals seems unrealistic.
Talk of a Kane transfer came to something of a halt recently, whilst Chelsea’s focus returned to acquiring Haaland.
But because so many obstacles stand between Roman Abramovich and the Norwegian, the club continue to consider other possibilities.
Hurdles for Harry
Buying Tottenham’s no.10 might be the most difficult task of the lot.
Firstly, the relationship between the capital city enemies is understandably sour.
Coming up with the funds to source any kind of agreement could prove challenging as well.
£150m (Telegraph) is the number being suggested by Spurs, which may rise further as more teams attempt to sign him.
Manchester City have reportedly already made an eight figure bid for Kane, whilst Manchester United are also in the conversation.
Abramovich is hoping to save that kind of cash for Haaland and possibly another central defender.
Balls in Kane’s court
However, the England skipper apparently wants to leave Tottenham in order to win silverware both his career ends, something Chelsea can realistically offer.
He is also a massive fan of Mason Mount.
“I love Mason as a player,” said the 27-year-old whilst speaking on The Overlap Extra channel.
“He’s been great. He’s so good on the ball. He’s such a nuisance off the ball, the way he presses and wins balls back.”
Any real chat about a move for Kane will probably have to wait until his European Championship campaign concludes, with England playing Germany tomorrow night.
