Tottenham Hotspur interested in Gabriel Jesus, the North London club could be tempted
to part ways with Harry Kane if Manchester City offers Gabriel Jesus plus cash,
according to reports.
It’s thought that the Brazilian is valued at around £70m and that a similar amount on top
of his signature could tempt the Lilywhites into a move.
NSL Understands Pep Guardiola would be reluctant to let the 24-year-old go but
making him part of any offer could bolster their chances of securing Kane as it would
give them a direct replacement for the England international.
But City has other players they could choose to include in a possible switch.
Dutch defender Nathan Ake may be one of the players offered to Tottenham – with the
26-year-old playing just 13 games for City all season.
Any deal will have to be put on hold until Tottenham sorts out their managerial issue.
And with a possible Mauricio Pochettino return on the cards, Kane could be tempted to
stay. Kane is on international duty with England at this summer’s Euros, and his future
isn’t likely to be decided before the tournament finishes.
On Kane’s future, England boss Gareth Southgate said: “He knows how important that is
at this moment in time.
“What’s going on at his club is a matter for him and Tottenham. He’s obviously made
some statements in the last few days although in many respects that’s out of the way
“Talking across the board here, I think it’s very unlikely that transfer deals will be done
while we are away.
“That’s different when we have our camps in September. Very often we are on that
deadline moment and now and then we’ve had to facilitate a medical or a meeting
between a player and a manager. “I’m very realistic about those things.
“We’re not going to stop phones ringing — we can’t control conversations that are going
on in private — but I think most deals are done at the end of the tournaments or in
the first week after the end of the season.
“I would expect anything across the board with our players to be after the tournament.”
