Ex-Liverpool Defender Urges Klopp To Sign This Tottenham Hotspur Duo: Does He Have A Point?

In a recent segment with ESPN FC (transcripted by goal.com), former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol urged Jurgen Klopp to consider recruiting Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Heung-min Son following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino earlier this week. Spurs have appointed Jose Mourinho as their new manager, but Nicol reckons his former club should look at signing both Kane and Son when he said (via ESPN FC), “I was thinking about [Kane].

“Would I have Harry Kane or would I have [Roberto] Firmino? That’s a tough question that isn’t it.

“Given the choice, I’d rather have my centre-forward be a goalscorer, so I would have to go with Kane. It’s a tough one.

“[Son] would be fantastic to be able to… listen, put it this way, no offence to Divock Origi but I would prefer to bring Son on.”

Son And Kane Need To Find Some Consistency In The Premier League

Both Tottenham forwards have struggled to find consistency with their performances this season. Hence, the North London side’s results have suffered because of it, which has led to Pochettino’s sacking. However, with Mourinho coming into the club now, they are expected to be a central part of the Portuguese head coach’s plans heading into the future.

Son has scored eight goals and created four assists in 15 appearances for Spurs this term across all competitions. On the other hand, Kane has found the back of the net on ten occasions while providing one assist in 15 matches for the Premier League side on all fronts this term.

There is no doubt that both attackers will add a lot of goals and creativity to Klopp’s first-team if they decided to make a move to Merseyside. However, truth be told, recruiting both Tottenham stars seems like a far-fetched dream for Liverpool rather than a realistic possibility.

What Will The Spurs Duo Bring To Merseyside?

Kane is one of the most potent goal-scorers in world football while Son is a dynamic dribbler who can also contribute by netting or creating a few important goals for his side. Both players will flourish under a manager like Klopp, but Mourinho surely won’t be too keen to let them go, especially to join one of their rivals.

Is Nicol Right With His Assessment?

Nicol makes sense when he states that Kane and Son will both be decent acquisitions for the European champions. However, he is clearly out of his depth with such a suggestion as Liverpool are unlikely to splash the cash on big-name players if the last couple of transfer windows are anything to go by.
