Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has named 26-goal Tottenham centre-forward Harry Kane as a possible target for the club this summer.
Redknapp claims the England captain, Kane, could be a player who Liverpool have on their radar ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Pitch to Post Podcast, as transcribed by the Liverpool Echo, Redknapp made the bold suggestion. “Harry Kane maybe might be a player who is on their radar, who knows how Liverpool might address it.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It is extremely difficult to see a transfer for Kane happening this summer. Liverpool have reportedly been hit hard financially by the Covid-19 pandemic and this could affect their ability to spend big money this year. The pandemic has caused millions of pounds to be lost by clubs across the globe, with supporters – in England at least – unable to watch their team play live at full capacity since March 2020.
Kane has scored 26 goals in all competitions for club and country this season, whilst also providing 17 assists, which makes it hard to see Tottenham letting him go easily. This means that they could be completely uninterested in selling him for any price, with no current suggestion otherwise. Therefore, how would Liverpool be able to sign him this summer?
If Liverpool do not have the finances for a mega signing and Tottenham are not looking to cash in on Kane, how could a transfer take place? Never say never in football, but this does not appear to be a transfer story that is going to develop further in the coming weeks and months.
