Tottenham Hotspur report: ‘The next Harry Kane’ to leave club for record fee, as Ange Postecoglou plots huge statement of intent

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to add another goalscorer to their squad this January, with attention turning to an expensive centre-forward

One of Europe’s best strikers is a target for Tottenham Hotspur, but his price will be high.

The Lilywhites, led by new manager Ange Postecoglou, have had an incredible start to the season and are currently atop the Premier League. This season, Son Heung-min has taken a more forward position and transformed into a center-forward.

Harry Kane, Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer, left the team over the summer, and the team decided not to replace him with a player who was comparable. Ange Postecoglou, though, has a great chance to win the championship if he makes midseason roster improvements.

Harry Kane celebrates one of his three goals in an 8-0 win for Bayern Munich against Darmstadt in the Bundesliga in October 2023.

90min says that Dutch champions Feyenoord have named their price for Mexican hitman Santiago Gimenez amid interest from Spurs and other top European sides.

Gimenez won’t be leaving the Netherlands for less than what Manchester United paid Ajax for Antony the previous season, the report claims, citing the Brazilian’s trade as evidence of their striker’s worth.

From Spurs’ perspective, this makes any possible trade for the player extremely intriguing.

After signing for an Eredivisie record £81.3 million, Antony joined the Premier League. Gimenez will break the record because Feyenoord won’t sell for anything less, but Tottenham will also have to pay a club record amount.

After a £55 million move in 2019, Tottenham’s record signing to date is still midfielder Tanguy Ndombele of Galatasaray, who is currently on his third loan out of North London.


Tottenham ‘told to pay at least £43.6m’ for incredible playmaker to rival James Maddison

According to reports, Tottenham wants to sign a creative midfielder to compete with James Maddison the following campaign.

According to reports, Tottenham will have to spend more than £43 million in order to sign Inter Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu when the summer arrives. The North Londoners have won eight of their first ten Premier League games, and they are currently atop the standings after an amazing start to the new season.

James Maddison, who joined from Leicester City this summer and has excelled in midfield, has been a major factor in their recent success. Calhanoglou has reportedly been lined up as the club’s main target, and it appears that Ange Postecoglou is eager to add another elite playmaker to his ranks at the end of the season.

According to InterLive, Tottenham will have a great chance of signing the Turkish midfielder in the summer if two requirements are satisfied. Calhanoglu has scored four goals in 12 games for Inter this season, but it is said that Spurs won’t have a chance to sign him unless they make it to the Champions League.

The future of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who was speculated to be leaving over the summer but ultimately decided to stay in north London, will also play a role in any possible transfer. At the end of the current season, Spurs are rumored to “give serious thought” to signing Calhanoglu if the Dane departs and they secure a spot in the Champions League the following year.

He has a contract that runs through the summer of 2027 at the San Siro, and Tottenham is reportedly required to pay at least £43.6 million to keep him. There are still a lot of moving parts that need to line up before next summer, so it’s unclear if this will actually happen.

Spurs will be hoping for Calhanoglu to have a similar impact to Maddison if he eventually joins their squad, with the latter having firmly established himself as one of the Premier League’s best attacking midfielders. He hashas already tallied five assists on the season, and in August, he was named the division’s Player of the Month in recognition of his achievements.

Postecoglou recently praised Maddison for his incredible start to life at Tottenham, saying: “I wouldn’t say I’m surprised, but I’m overjoyed at the footballer I’ve got.” the manner in which he has accepted the entire club and his current situation. He aspires to be that person.

“We are attempting to provide as much ball as we can to him and the other creative players so they can engage in their favorite activities. It certainly seems to fit him, in my opinion.”
