Tottenham could be seeking a new striker this season following reports that Harry Kane is looking to leave the club.
Sky Sports revealed on Monday evening that Kane has asked for a transfer this summer, and Spurs have begun to make enquiries about potential replacements.
Selling Kane would no doubt bring in some huge funds for Spurs, who have struggled financially as a result of the pandemic, allowing them to spend big on a replacement.
So here are five potential strikers Tottenham can bring in to fill that gaping hole Kane will leave in the squad.
Dutch forward Depay is now seen as one of the top strikers in Europe, having revived his career with Lyon after flopping at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old is out of contract this summer though, and should be available for absolutely nothing.
Despite his serious lack of game time, Tammy Abraham is still Chelsea’s joint-top goalscorer this season.
For whatever reason, Thomas Tuchel is not a fan of the 23-year-old who has obvious talent.
Tottenham would likely sign the striker for a quarter of the funds they receive for Kane and Abraham stays in London. A win for both parties?
If it’s Premier League experience Spurs will lose in Kane, it’s Premier League experience they’ll gain in signing City legend Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine is available on a free this summer after calling time on his Sky Blues career, and it’s no secret that he knows where the back of the goal is in the English top flight.
Recent reports have suggested Aguero has agreed a move to Barcelona but should he want to stay in the Premier League then there’s no doubting Tottenham could offer him a healthy salary with the money they’ll receive for Kane.

A player Tottenham have been linked with in the past, Levy has never quite managed to get a deal over the line for Dybala.
But with a windfall of cash from selling Kane, Spurs can finally afford to pay Dybala’s image rights and all the extra bits that complicated a deal in the past.
Dybala is perhaps more in the mould of a Son Heung-min or a Lucas Moura, but that might allow either of those two to bomb on and play in the striker role, while Dybala pulls the strings behind them.
From the best striker in England to arguably the second best striker in England, signing Everton ’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin would be the most like-for-like replacement Tottenham could possibly make in replacing Kane.
Calvert-Lewin has been in brilliant form this season, and is now a regular in the England set up too, showing just how far he has come over the last couple of years with the Toffees.
Everton will be desperate not to let the 24-year-old go, but a big chunk of Kane’s fee would certainly light up some eyes at Goodison Park.
