In a recent edition of The Transfer Window Podcast, renowned journalist Duncan Castles revealed that Manchester City have launched a move for Tottenham Hotspur marksman Harry Kane this summer. It is believed that Man City have made the England international their primary target for this summer transfer window with the player keen on leaving Spurs in search of major trophies (transcripted by Sports Illustrated).

Kane’s Terrific Record At The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Last Season

The 27-year-old has continued to excel as Tottenham’s main centre-forward and enjoyed another sensational campaign in English football last season. Kane registered 33 goals and 17 assists in 49 appearances for the North London giants last season across all fronts.

The London-born frontman has been an exceptional presence inside the opponent’s penalty box as he averaged 3.9 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.5 dribbles per game in Premier League football. However, he was a bit sloppy when interchanging possession in the final third after making 69.9% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

Kane is currently amongst the most feared centre-forwards in European football, so he would be a massive coup for the reigning Premier League champions if they can convince Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to sell his prized asset in this off-season.

Will Kane Be A Dream Option For Man City?

Kane is a lethal finisher in front of the opposition goal and can contribute by setting up some goals for his teammates as well. He has a knack for finding space and getting a few shots in at goal. The England international can strike the ball with power and accuracy that makes him a real handful for the opponent’s centre-halves. Plus, he is a natural leader up top and can drag his team over the line at times in some of the closely contested games at the highest level.

The Three Lions star will serve as a perfect successor to Sergio Aguero, who is set to join Barcelona next month, at the Etihad Stadium. We can expect Kane to bring plenty of quality to Pep Guardiola’s frontline and could help the Mancunian giants end their long wait for the UEFA Champions League trophy in the coming seasons.

With all things considered, the Tottenham talisman will be a dream option for Man City to consider during this summer transfer window. He is a proven goal-getter who is always a contender to win the golden boot in the Premier League which makes him an ideal fit for the Mancunian outfit before the start of the new campaign.
