Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham is once again being debated following their Champions League exit to AC Milan.
When and where will Harry Kane depart Tottenham? That will be the question once more as the summer transfer window approaches, but among all the teams, Chelsea probably has the finest foundation in place to make it happen.
With Todd Boehly’s first 12 months in charge, the season has been difficult for Chelsea supporters. The acquisition of new players cost almost £600 million, a move that astounded many of Manchester City’s Premier League competitors. Graham Potter’s substitution for Thomas Tuchel at the beginning of the season hasn’t been successful on the field thus far.
But given that their strikers haven’t been able to find their shooting form this season, it’s clear where Chelsea has had the most difficulty. The only players with more than three goals are Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz, but they have only combined for seven goals in all competitions.
With so many options, Potter has had difficulty identifying his three best attackers week in and week out. Potter has a choice of 10 attackers after the January arrivals of Joao Felix, Noni Madueke, David Datro Fofana, and Mykahlo Mudryk. While Felix might not be signed on a long-term basis, Fofana is anticipated to be loaned away in the summer. Romelu Lukaku went for Inter Milan on loan, therefore Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was brought in to assist cover the position. However, under Potter, the former Arsenal striker has lost favor.
Despite having numerous offҽnsive alternatives, Chelsea still lacks a rҽal No 9 who can play down the center. They only need one more piece, and Kane would probably be the best available choice, for them to have a terrifying αssault unit.
Given that Antonio Conte’s future is also up in the air, Spurs will have to fιght to keep Kane at the team this summer. With barely a year left on his current deal, Tottenham won’t want to take the chance of losing their best player for free in 2024. If a complete buyout from Qatar is completed before the end of the current campaign, Manchester United may have the resources to make a play for the England captain. But Chelsea has already demonstrated under Boehly that they aren’t scarҽd to spend a lot of money to get in the player they want.
