Tottenham Hotspur are cruising at the moment with a 6 wins on the bounce and the closest to leaders Chelsea in the league table. Last time out, they demolished West Brom 4-0 at home, Harry Kane claiming the match ball with a spectacular hat-trick and an own goal from McAuley.
Mauricio Pochettino is clearly over the moon with the performance on the pitch yet off the pitch, he does face a challenge to fend off interests from European heavyweights for his key players, particularly Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Nevertheless, former Tottenham and Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has stated that the Blues should be eyeing a move for Spurs’ most prized possessions, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, according to the Daily Star and Express.
“I love Harry Kane – I really do,” the sources quote Cundy as saying. “And Alexis Sanchez’s contract situation is precarious too.
“But go after Harry Kane and Dele Alli. They can go to a proper club with ambition. They could with that sort of money.
“They had £60m for Oscar and £90m for Diego Costa, you can buy who you want with that kind of money. If you said to chairman Daniel Levy to £150m, they would go, wouldn’t they?”
The prolific striker has already notched 13 goals out of 16 league appearances despite missing a huge chunk in between due to injury. While Alli has seen a meteoric rise in his value since arriving at White Hart Lane. Anything and everything good in attack predominantly involves the former MK Dons midfielder, most notably when he bagged a brace against Chelsea to end their winning streak and open up the title race.
Costa has been hogging the headlines of late, after involving in a war of words with his manager and reports are swirling around that a move to China is on the cards. If the Spaniard does leave, his ideal replacement within England’s top flight got to be Kane since he is young and with the governance of Antonio Conte, he could get even better, just like Costa. Since Oscar and Mikel packed their bags to China, no replacements have been signed, or in other words, no one is needed. However, in terms of a long-term plan, a signing like Alli would be tailor-made for success.
With ample of money buried in Chelsea’s coffer, combating Real Madrid and Barcelona in a bidding war wouldn’t be a tough ask but one can never deny that, if Spurs are willing to let go their star players, they will be happy to see them leave to league, just like previous deals for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.
Thankfully for the Spurs faithful, the club are putting two fingers up at selling their best players after developing into a genuine contender in the title race this term. In the past, they struggled down to the ground to replace Modric and Bale, and with that in mind, Daniel Levy has already got a number of key players to sign contract extensions.
Pochettino will not be too contented with Cundy’s two cents yet will be fully focused on their next match as they take on Manchester City away from home. Pep Guardiola’s men suffered a 4-0 defeat to Everton last time out and will look to defy the odds against the Lilywhites.
