Report: 'World class' player could join Tottenham after big development, he's won the PL three times
Gabriel Jesus could join Tottenham Hotspur as Harry Kane’s replacement, The Sun claimed last night.
Kane out, Jesus in?
Tottenham are said to have sanctioned a deal for Kane, which will allow him to join City for £160 million.
Spurs have previously stood firm over selling Kane, but Daniel Levy is now said to have relented and allowed his side’s star man the move that he wants.
If that is to be the case then Tottenham will obviously be looking to make additions of their own, with at least one striker needed.
And The Sun speculate that Jesus could be the man to replace Kane.
There is not much more added in the report other than that, with most the Sun’s information based around Kane.
But the suggestion that Jesus could actually make a switch to Spurs is an interesting one.
Ready made replacement?
If Tottenham are to lose Kane then bringing in a player with Premier League experience could be crucial.
Spurs will simply not have the luxury of having time to allow a player to bed into their new surroundings if Kane leaves – they will need someone who is immediately capable of stepping up and filling the void.
Jesus may not be quite of the same quality as Kane, hardly and strikers are, but he could still be a useful alternative.
The Brazilian, who has been labelled as ‘world class’ by City teammate Ilkay Gundagon (Goal), has won the Premier League three times, and his minutes to goal record is very impressive.
Jesus has never quite become City’s main striker, but at Tottenham he would have that honour if Kane was to leave.
And that may help to bring the best out of the Brazilian, who would certainly arrive at Spurs with a point to prove if he was to make the switch.
