Spurs seem destined to lose their prolific striker this summer but they have been reassured there exists a ready-made replacement for him.

Tottenham should go all in for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin in case Harry Kane leaves, suggests the club’s former goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

Kane’s future remains up in the air, with the 27-year-old supposedly seeking pastures new in a desperate search for trophies.

Manchester City are being touted as his next destination, with several reliable sources confirming the Sky Blues’ interest in the England captain. It has also been reported that Man City have already once approached Spurs, who turned down their £100 million transfer offer for the striker.

Tottenham are resolved to not part ways with Kane for now but there could be forced to sign his successor sooner rather than later. And should they find themselves in such a situation, they have been advised to target a forward who got 16 goals in 33 Premier League outings in 2020/21.

Robinson has told Football Insider: “If Tottenham lose Kane they need to go after somebody like Calvert-Lewin. He is a player who can lead the line.

“Spurs will have to invest heavily in a number nine if Kane goes. They will have to go deep into their pockets to find a replacement, that’s for sure.

“Go and test Everton’s resolve. Go and put in a massive bid because Calvert-Lewin is someone who I think is capable of taking over from Kane.”
