“Nothing is going on”- Romano vehemently shoots down PL club’s links with Tottenham star

Romano rubbishes Harry Kane-Romelu Lukaku swap deal claims between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea

According to transfer news on CalcioMercatoWeb (h/t the Express) earlier this month, Chelsea manager Graham Potter was apparently keen to bring Harry Kane to Stamford Bridge and was prepared to offer Romelu Lukaku and cash in return for his services.

Now, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water over these claims. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano clarified:

“There is absolutely nothing on this story [Harry Kane to Chelsea for Lukaku plus cash]. As of today, September, nothing is going on between Tottenham, Chelsea, agents of the player for Kane-Lukaku swap deal. So, nothing at all. Just rumours around.”

That’s a relief. Any move that sees a Tottenham superstar join a direct rival in London always seems a little hard to believe, especially with guys like Fabio Paratici, Antonio Conte, and Daniel levy calling the shots at N17.

Good news for Spurs

For a club like Spurs to succeed, we cannot afford to weaken ourselves by directly strengthening a rival for trophies. Kane was, is, and will continue to be our biggest threat in attack for the foreseeable future and we must look to extend his contract beyond the summer of 2024.

At 29, he still has a number of years left in his legs. He has shown in recent years that he isn’t just a goal-scorer but an able playmaker as well, winning the award for providing the most assists and scoring the most goals in the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.

Chelsea, meanwhile, would obviously want to sort out their situation up front. They have seen two strikers in Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner return to their former clubs after joining the Stamford Bridge outfit in high-profile deals, while Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud left permanently for Serie A last year.

More Tottenham News:

The Belgium international is on a season-long loan deal at Inter Milan while the German striker moved to RB Leipzig permanently this summer. Pierre-Emerick was signed this summer from Barcelona but it remains to be seen if they see the 33-year-old as a long-term solution to their striker problems up front.
