TBR View: Kasper Dolberg could be the perfect Tottenham signing to replace Harry Kane
It’s probably a question that most Tottenham fans don’t want to think about, but there’ll come a point where the club needs to replace Harry Kane.
Whether that be through Kane leaving Spurs and seeking a new challenge, or just that the striker begins to slow down through injury, fitness, and age catching up with him. Of course, Kane is still just 27, so any talk of a slowing down is premature as yet.
But Tottenham will need to act one day and depending on how the loan signing of Carlos Vinicius pans out, they might need to bring someone in over the next 12-18 months.
That’s why it could make sense for the club to revisit their past interest in Danish hotshot, Kasper Dolberg.
It was claimed a number of seasons ago that Spurs were keen on Dolberg, although the forward eventually moved from Ajax to France, where he now plays for Nice.
Goals and potential
Dolberg already has three goals in six games this season in Ligue 1. He netted 11 times last season, too, following on from the 12 he got in his final season with Ajax.
But while those numbers aren’t massive or mind-blowing, Dolberg is a striker who has all the attributes needed to succeed. And at 23, time is on his side to improve and learn even more from a manager like Mourinho and a world-class striker like Kane.
Dolberg has been one of the hottest properties on the European market for some seasons now. And without disrespect to the French league, the Danish star is more than capable of stepping up to a higher level.
Tottenham are on the up under Mourinho but he knows Kane needs support and won’t last forever. Dolberg, then, could be a perfect option for the club to consider.
