Chris Sutton has told the BBC that Harry Kane would be stupid not to consider a move to Liverpool if the opportunity arises to leave Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs have desperately missed Kane during his recent hamstring injury and losing him would be catastrophic.
Sutton doesn’t think he’d be able to turn down Liverpool should they come calling for his services.
He told the BBC: “I can understand the predicament he is in.
“But if he wants to win the Premier League, then he should move on and go to a club who have a better chance of winning than Spurs do.
“We all understand he wants to win something. So if he wants to win something, I wouldn’t begrudge him a move.
“Spurs are a brilliant club, but at this moment in time, they are way behind the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
“If one of those clubs came in for him, if you were Harry Kane you’d be stupid not to go.”
Signing Kane won’t be easy for any club who wishes to try and pursue his signature.
The Telegraph previously reported that Daniel Levy would want in the region of £250 million for the world-class talisman.
What Tottenham can’t do is have a repeat of the situation with Christian Eriksen.
The Dane refused to sign a new deal, forcing Tottenham into a sale in January with his contract due to run out in the summer.
Losing Eriksen on the cheap was bad enough but allowing Kane to run his deal down too would be completely bonkers.
Kane has smashed 181 goals in 278 appearances and it considered one of the best strikers in the world.
The 26-year-old has a contract until 2024 and Tottenham must attract the required players to convince Kane into staying at the club.
