Former Tottenham Hotspur player Danny Murphy thinks that Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham could be a good replacement for Harry Kane.
The England captain’s future at the club is in jeopardy at the moment with reports coming through that he wants to leave this summer, further thrown into doubt by some of the comments he made in a recent interview with Gary Neville.
And should he leave, Spurs are obviously going to need someone to fill the goals that Kane takes with him, 221 of them in 336 appearances. And speaking on TalkSport’s Jim White and Simon Jordan (32:49), Murphy felt that Abraham could be the man to replace him:
“I do think that there’s a hell of a lot of business still to be done this summer. A lot of clubs are still losing players, not all top end. The domino effect of transfers works on all levels, not just at the £60m-£70m-£80m level, you’re talking at the £7m-£15m level.
“We were talking about Tammy Abraham. I mean what a signing he would be for someone like Tottenham. If Kane’s going to go, Tammy Abraham is a goalscorer.”
TIF Thoughts on Danny Murphy’s comments about Tammy Abraham
Abraham has fallen out of favour under Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge, only starting four games in all competitions since the German took over, and with Chelsea being one of the clubs that are showing an interest in Kane, the writing is on the wall for the 23-year-old, valued at £36m on Transfermarkt, that he probably doesn’t have a future at Chelsea.
Would you like to see Tammy Abraham at Tottenham?
With 30 goals in 82 appearances for Chelsea, the drop off in terms of goal threat that Kane brings compared to Abraham is incredibly vast, and Tottenham would by some distance be getting the raw end of that deal.
So whilst Spurs may need a replacement for Kane this summer, they can certainly do a lot better.
