'Couldn't lace Harry's left boot': Some Spurs fans react to links with potential Kane replacement
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have given their thoughts on the report claiming Mauro Icardi has been earmarked as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.
The England captain’s future at Spurs remains subject to speculation amid purported interest from Europe’s biggest clubs.
And according to L’Equipe, the north Londoners are keeping tabs on Icardi in case Kane decides to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Argentina international, who is contracted to Paris Saint-Germain until the summer of 2024, reportedly wants to leave the Ligue 1 club in the summer.
Icardi has registered 12 goals and six assists from 28 PSG appearances this season, while his overall tally in the French capital reads 60 games, 32 goals and 10 assists.
Prior to his move to France, the 28-year-old made 219 appearances for Inter Milan, netting 124 goals and notching up 28 assists.
Despite a decent goalscoring record, some Spurs supporters aren’t overly keen to see Icardi linked with their club as a replacement for Kane.
Here’s some of the social media reaction:
