Tottenham star Harry Kane may not be the only player ready to leave the club behind, according to reports. The England international has informed Daniel Levy he wants out, having agreed to stay 12 months ago. And five other players could join the 27-year-old out of the exit door, writes the Express.
Tottenham have endured a chastening campaign under both Jose Mourinho and Ryan Mason, missing out on Champions League football for a second year in a row.
And, to make matters worse, Kane wants out.
News broke on Monday that the England international had informed Levy of his desire to leave, having grown frustrated at missing out on the biggest trophies on offer.
It’s a substantial blow to Spurs, who now face the prospect of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea coming calling for their prized striker.
And, to make matters worse, The Sun say he could be joined by five other players.
The 2018 World Cup winner has been a huge asset to the club over the years but, with one year left on his current deal, a summer exit may take place.
Son Heung-min is another whose future is up in the air, with the South Korea international devastated by Kane’s decision.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s name is also mentioned, with the Denmark international a regular during Mourinho’s time at the helm.
And Serge Aurier and Tanguy Ndombele are also seeking moves away, and were doing so even before the news about Kane hit the headlines on Monday night.
For Levy, that’s a nightmare.
A mass exodus of their best players is the last thing Tottenham need, especially with the coronavirus crisis likely to complicate potential signings this summer.
