Liverpool backed to complete successful transfer from Tottenham to Harry Kane to dwarf Erling Haaland, according to Man City

Liverpool are set to push the boat out and sign Harry Kane to counter Man City’s Erling Haaland scam, and an expert has explained why that’s not as weird as you might think.

Manchester City are on course to win their fourth national title in five years. Liverpool have been their biggest rivals throughout that time, breaking City’s hold to lift their first Premier League trophy of the 2019/20 season.

However, never content to rest on their laurels under Pep Guardiola, City are set to get even stronger next year.

In fact, Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland is on his way to grace the Premier League. City scam details – including the full financial breakdown of the deal – can be found here.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano recently revealed how Liverpool plan to react to Haaland’s news. The trusted journalist exposed four separate planes that will shape his summer, though he insisted his transfer policy will continue to be geared towards “smart deals”.

In other words, the Reds will stick to their approach of signing players going into their early years who have something to prove.

But according to commentator Tony Cascarino, Liverpool should fight fire with fire and break the bank for Harry Kane.

The Spurs forward had a slow start to the season but has since regained his best form.

Kane was once again praised for his ace skills and was instrumental in helping Son Heung-min to compete for the golden boot. At the time of publication, the South Korean is just one goal behind Mohamed Salah on the scoreboard.

Kane has been the subject of intense speculation linking him to a move to Etihad last summer. However, Spurs supreme Daniel Levy stood his ground, and Haaland’s imminent arrival closed that door for good.

Now, Cascarino has referenced that move when explaining why Liverpool should attack. He also explained why the tottenham talisman might really want to leave and why the Reds are their only option.

Kane future dependent on the Champions League?

“Signing Harry Kane would be the perfect way for Liverpool to respond to City’s capture of Haaland” Cascarino wrote in the Times.

“Tottenham Hotspur are ready to finish out of the Champions League places and if that happens Kane is unlikely to want to stay for another year.

“England’s talisman can’t go to City because of Haaland’s move. Manchester United is not an option because they will miss the Champions League. Chelsea already have Romelu Lukaku.

“That leaves Liverpool the only suitable destination for Kane – and he would be a great fit for Klopp’s team.”

Harry Kane to Liverpool – Could It Happen?

City reportedly saw several bids north of £100m for Kane dropped last summer.

Even if his value has gone down a bit being a year older and with 12 months less on his contract, a move would likely still require a new Liverpool club record.

Virgil van Dijk was 26 years old when his current record of £75 million was set. When the next season starts, Kane will be 29 years old.

Liverpool’s owners have shown that they are willing to grow when the right man is available. However, a move for Kane makes little sense in our eyes.

Liverpool have undoubtedly been at their best this season when Sadio Mane operated centrally. With Luis Diaz an instant hit on Merseyside, Mane could find himself in the middle more often next year.

Furthermore, Tottenham are heading in the right direction under Antonio Conte and Kane once again looks set. And if Spurs overhaul Arsenal and qualify for the Champions League, Kane’s chances of leaving would be virtually nil.
