Tottenham Hotspur: Two potential knock-on effects of Tammy Abraham links amid Harry Kane doubt

The powers that be at Tottenham Hotspur will have a lot to consider as Tammy Abraham is linked with a transfer amid doubt over Harry Kane’s future. 

The Athletic has reported that Manchester United will consider Kane as a prime target in the summer should they want a striker. With that in mind, they add that super-agent Jorge Mendes has been ‘approaching centre-forwards’ in Europe about making a move to north London – the article then names Abraham as one of those players.

Taking that into account, TIF has decided to look at what this could mean for Tottenham over the summer…

Huge call for Paratici

If Spurs were to make a move for Abraham, the man behind it would likely be director of football Fabio Paratici. Of course, if such a high-profile striker was signed, it would probably mean another one would depart.

Indeed, for this move to happen, Kane would almost certainly have to be sold. However, that is easier said than done. After all, not only is the Englishman one of the club’s best-ever players, he also ranks right up there with the finest when it comes to Premier League strikers.

With that in mind, a lot of fans would surely be hugely disappointed to see their talisman leave this summer. And it would put a lot of pressure on Paratici to make the right decisions.

Due to Paratici’s links to Italy and his past at Juventus, Abraham – who plays in Serie A with Roma – could be an ideal target. However, he may also be tempted to look at Paulo Dybala, who has also been linked with the club in recent weeks.

Whoever the Italian goes for, it will be a tough decision trying to replace Kane if he does leave in the summer.

Levy won’t budge

Another man who this latest news could have huge ramifications for is Daniel Levy. The chairman is well-known for his tight-fisted approach to the transfer market, and reportedly turned down a bid of over £100m for Kane last summer from Manchester City.

There’s no telling how much it will cost to prise their star player away this summer. But if Abraham is the man they seek to replace him, Levy could be left sweating over the price.

Indeed, according to a report by the Daily Mail, Roma have supposedly put a transfer price of £100m on their striker as they hope to keep him at the club for as long as possible – or turn a tidy profit on the £34m they paid to sign him from Chelsea.

However much Spurs may receive for Kane, they’ll likely have to spend a fair chunk of his transfer fee on replacing him. It will certainly be interesting to see how Levy approaches that dilemma if and when it does arise.
