Tottenham 'identify Man Utd star Anthony Martial and City striker Gabriel Jesus as Harry Kane transfer replacements'

TOTTENHAM have identified Anthony Martial and Gabriel Jesus as replacements for Harry Kane, according to reports.

The North Londoners are said to be bracing themselves for the striker's departure this summer and have highlighted the two stars from the Manchester clubs who could be used in part-exchange.

Kane has told Tottenham he wants to leave — sparking a £150million summer scramble for his signature.

Manchester City are leading the race to sign the striker, with the Etihad Kane’s preferred destination.

Chelsea and Manchester United are also in the race as the 27-year-old looks to give himself a chance of winning a club trophy.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy – who fans have been protesting against – is fighting to keep his talisman, who still has three years left on a £230,000-a-week contract, by slapping the £150m price tag on his head.

But the North Londoners have been quietly planning for life without Kane since February, according to the Mail.

Scouting and recruitment planning have reportedly been ongoing for at least three months.

And club staff are said to have highlighted Martial and Jesus as players they could take in part exchange – with the Manchester clubs frontrunners in the race for Kane's signature.

Chelsea's Tammy Abraham, Lyon's Memphis Depay, City's Sergio Aguero, Juventus' Paulo Dybala and Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin have also been mooted as potential replacements by the Mirror.

England captain Kane, who has never won a major club honour, originally said he was going to make an announcement on his future after leading the Three Lions at this summer’s Euros.

But Kane stunned Spurs by telling them he needs to leave — and wants it done and dusted BEFORE the tournament  next month.

The move has left Levy reeling as he also hunts for a new manager after sacking Jose Mourinho.

Kane has NOT handed in a written transfer request but his representatives have made it known he wants out and he believes that Levy will let him leave at the right price.

He is keen to remain in the Premier League, putting the Manchester giants and Chelsea on red alert.

But those three will want negotiations over Levy’s whopping asking price, particularly in the post-Covid era.

After the Kane bombshell broke, SunSport explored how United could line up with the superstar in the team.
