Tottenham Hotspur are exploring negotiations for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

Daniel Levy earmarks Victor Osimhen to replace Harry Kane at Tottenham Hotspur

According to German outlet Sport Bild, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has set his sights on Napoli striker Victor Osimhen as the potential successor to Harry Kane, should the English star bid farewell to the club this summer.

The unexpected news comes as Bayern Munich has emerged as a formidable contender for Kane’s signature, despite their initial bid of £60 million being firmly rejected by Tottenham. They do not seem to be giving up.

Beyond the mere offer, reports suggest that Bayern Munich has taken a more audacious approach by directly engaging with Kane to discuss contract terms. This direct approach has reportedly left Levy seething with anger.

According to BILD, in response to Bayern’s actions, Levy intends to retaliate by driving up the transfer fee even further for Kane. Levy’s fury stems from a desire to demonstrate Tottenham’s uncompromising stance and maintain the club’s dignity in the face of such audacity.

Simultaneously, Tottenham has made an ardent effort to retain their star striker by presenting him with a lucrative new contract, as per The Guardian. However, Kane remains unhurried in committing to the deal.

With the uncertainty surrounding Kane’s future, Tottenham have diligently begun exploring alternative avenues, identifying Victor Osimhen as one of their top prospects to fill the void left by the prolific forward, should it come to pass.

Victor Osimhen’s track record with Napoli speaks volumes about his ability to excel on the pitch. Having netted an impressive tally of 59 goals and provided 14 assists in 101 appearances across all competitions, Osimhen was an instrumental figure in Napoli’s recent title-winning campaign.

The urgency for Kane’s future to be resolved promptly cannot be understated. Spurs hope for a swift resolution to ensure they have ample time to secure a suitable replacement should their star striker depart.
