Jamie Carragher says Harry Kane would slot in effortlessly to the Liverpool team
Jamie Carragher has claimed that Liverpool would be a “perfect destination” for Tottenham’s Harry Kane, albeit he can’t see him ending up at Anfield.
Kane, 27, is at the centre of the media’s attention right now, as speculation around his Spurs future is flying around right now.
The England captain has confirmed he hopes to sit down and hold an “honest conversation” with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy about his future, as he’s desperate to win trophies.
According to the Mirror, Kane is convinced he’s leaving Spurs at the end of the season with his heart set on a switch to Manchester City.
It is claimed though that Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in the centre-forward.
The Spurs striker is a goal machine with 32 goals in 48 appearances this season across all competitions. On top of that, he’s also managed 16 assists.
Carragher believes that Kane would suit his former club Liverpool, even though they haven’t been linked.
“Of all the clubs that could attract Harry Kane this summer, one perfect destination is never mentioned: Liverpool,” Carragher wrote in the Telegraph.
“Under more appealing circumstances, Kane could slot effortlessly into the Liverpool team, ideally suited to a front three where he could play the dual role he has mastered as a slightly deeper centre-forward who still scores as prolifically as a traditional number nine.
“Kane is exactly what Liverpool have lacked upfront this season, and would comfortably make the adjustment working under Jurgen Klopp having excelled under Mauricio Pochettino.
“If Klopp thought a move was possible he would obviously be interested. Who wouldn’t be?
“But the fact Liverpool will not pursue the England striker underlines Kane’s problem as he looks for the right club to fulfil his ambitions. Brilliant though he is, Liverpool’s stance is correct. For many reasons, such an expensive transfer makes no sense.“
If Premier League title winners Man City do sign Kane in the summer, they are going to be overwhelming favourites to retain the crown next year.
He’s a world-class player that has grown tired of not winning silverware, which isn’t a surprise.
Kane is good enough to walk into any team in the world, including Liverpool, and it would be intriguing to see how the forward copes in brand new surroundings.
