Tottenham Hotspur’s hunt to bring in an able replacement for Harry Kane appears to have sent them to relegated Bournemouth, where Callum Wilson is seemingly on their radar.
As reported by The Sun over the weekend, Tottenham are readying a £10 million move for the player with the Cherries likely to sell him on to reduce their wage bill following relegation.
Sky Sports has now placed Tottenham among other Premier League teams when it comes to chasing the England international.
One player who would seemingly welcome the move is Harry Kane. Despite the potential extra competition, it would also alleviate plenty of the pressure currently resting on Tottenham’s main goal threat.
Not only that, but Kane has spoken in the past of his ability to partner with Wilson.
Back in March 2019, with Wilson in the England squad, Kane spoke to the Bournemouth Daily Echo about the striker and insisted that the duo could play together in a front two if Gareth Southgate required it.
“Yes, of course. It’s up to the manager but I feel I can play alongside any player,” Kane told the Daily Echo. “Callum came in and did great (in the last international break). He played the first game against the United States and scored and played really well.
“He has been doing great in the Premier League this season and over the past couple of seasons.”
It would seem that the idea in signing Wilson would be for him to act as a back-up in case of injury and to ensure Kane gets sufficient rest throughout a long campaign.
However, hearing that the Tottenham star would relish the chance to play alongside Wilson also gives Tottenham hope of potentially having a major plan B option in attack should Jose Mourinho decide to throw both into the mix.
