Report details Son and Hojbjerg's stance on speculation surrounding Kane's future at Spurs
The Sun have claimed that Son Heung-min and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are concerned and saddened at the prospect of Harry Kane leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer, amid reports that the England skipper has told Spurs he wants to depart.
Kane, 27, has enjoyed an excellent season on a personal level – scoring 32 goals and creating 16 more in all competitions, during his 48 outings. But Spurs sit seventh and look as though they are probably going to qualify for the Europa Conference League.
Simply, Spurs have not matched Kane’s ambition, not even close. So, Kane is expected to leave this summer and it has been widely reported that he has informed the North London club’s hierarchy he wants to depart and find pastures new.
The Sun reports that Son is ‘upset and concerned’ by the prospect of Kane leaving, while Hojbjerg is said to be ‘worried by the club’s lack of ambition’ should Daniel Levy cash in on Kane. Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United are keen.
TBR’s view – Could Son and Hojbjerg follow him?
Roma and Jose Mourinho are being linked with a move for Hojbjerg this summer, with Mourinho having signed him from Southampton 12 months ago. Meanwhile, Son has been linked with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid at times this term.
The chances of Levy selling Kane, and then another of Tottenham’s core is unlikely. But if the price is right and Son or Hojbjerg want out, they could easily go. But you would expect that both would stay, even if Kane goes.
