Journalist Luke Hatfield reckons that Nuno Espirito could look to Raul Jimenez should Tottenham lose Harry Kane.

Kane asked to leave the club earlier this summer, but unless City, Manchester United or someone else matches Daniel Levy’s asking price then the England captain will stay in north London.

Should Tottenham make Laporte a priority?

Meanwhile, Jimenez hasn’t featured since suffering a sickening head injury at Arsenal in November.

But the Mexican striker has a proven record in the Premier League since joining Wolves back in 2018 – scoring 34 goals, whilst chipping in 14 assists in 86 appearances.

Starting with a current Tottenham star. How many PL goals has Harry Kane scored for ?

Prior to his injury, Jimenez was one of the most reliable strikers in the topflight, flourishing in Santo’s counter-attacking Wolves side in recent seasons.

However, by the time the new campaign gets underway, it’ll be almost nine months since the 30-year-old played competitively, and whilst him and Santo have an excellent relationship, it might be a slight risk on Tottenham’s behalf.

But when speaking to This is Futbol, Hatfield failed to rule it out:

“I think if Harry Kane were to go, I think a player like Raul Jimenez would be of interest to Nuno, he’s done a job in the Premier League.

“He’s probably one of the Premier League’s best strikers when fit and firing. If Harry Kane were to go, maybe they will consider him.”
