The new Premier League season is set to kick off in less than a week’s time, and Manchester City, the defending champions, have already reacted by roping in Jack Grealish for £100m. They are not done yet in this window and have identified Tottenham Hotspur hitman Harry Kane as the successor of Sergio Aguero.
Spurs, meanwhile, are determined not to let the free-scoring forward join their league rivals. The wantaway Three Lions skipper had earlier not turned up for training, and the saga might not end here with City aggressively pursuing the most incredible transfer of Premier League history.
The Lilywhites have appointed former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo following an extensive search for their vacant managerial role, and the pressure would be immense on the Portuguese to turn things around after an underwhelming seventh-placed league finish last season.
Kane, 28, is yet to win silverware in his career, and even if he does not leave for Man City, it still leaves Tottenham as a team potentially outside the Top 4. They head into the season with odds to win the EPL at +4000, far behind the likes of City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United.
Why Tottenham Hotspur Must Move On With Significant Financial Boost
The Lilywhites have appointed Fabio Paratici as their new Managing Director of Football. His successful tenure at Juventus brings new hope in North London, and the Italian has already responded by raiding Atalanta twice within weeks. Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero would be massive for years to come, and such exciting transfers might eventually bring them back in contention for a Champions League berth.
Yet they are way behind the Manchester clubs as well as Chelsea and Liverpool in terms of the title push. United, too, have strengthened themselves significantly by snapping up Raphaël Varane and Jadon Sancho, whereas Chelsea are closing in on Romelu Lukaku in a mega-money swoop. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are back for Liverpool, having recovered from long-term injury woes, while Jurgen Klopp has addressed the defensive conundrum by securing the services of Ibrahima Konate prior to the upcoming term.
Bryan Gil is another bright prospect who could flourish for Spurs in the coming days, but the success won’t be imminent even though the project looks ambitious at the lane. Kane, therefore, has a case here of wanting to leave., While the speculations over training refusal have now been dismissed by the player himself via an official statement, there is still a long way to go before the summer window slams shut.
