Tottenham Hotspur consider Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku as option if Harry Kane leaves

Tottenham Hotspur could consider a move for two-time Chelsea flop Romelu Lukaku if Harry Kane leaves in the near future, as per Spanish publication Fichajes.

The Belgium international re-joined Chelsea in the summer of 2021 for a then club-record fee of 97.5million Pounds. He managed 15 goals in 44 games in his first season back at Stamford Bridge.

But once Thomas Tuchel started benching him for important games and preferring Timo Werner, who himself left last summer, then the writing appeared to be on the wall for Lukaku.

He was allowed to return to Inter Milan on loan for a season last year. Kane, meanwhile, is facing an uncertain future as well, given his contract expires at the end of next season.

A wise option?

He is yet to sign a new deal and Manchester United’s name has been mentioned in relation to him. If he leaves, Lukaku could be a high-risk, high-reward signing for us.

One should remember how he was impressive for West Bromwich Albion and Everton in England. Of course, Kane is a playmaker as well as a goal-scorer while Lukaku isn’t really known for his passing and link-up ability.

However, he can do one thing pretty well – score goals. Lukaku fired Inter Milan to the Scudetto in the 2020-21 season under manager Antonio Conte, so a move to SW6 won’t really be as odd as it may first sound.

He has played before under our current boss, Chelsea could be looking to offload a player who has failed to hit the ground running in west London in two out of two tries, while Lukaku can get another chance at proving himself in the Premier League.

Of course, the ideal situation would be to keep Kane. But if that doesn’t happen, we can do worse than the 29-year-old Belgian in the market.
