Potential replacements for Harry Kane at Tottenham - ranked

19 May 2021 05:00

Harry Kane is one the greatest strikers of his generation. 220 goals - of which 165 have been in the Premier League - in just 334 Tottenham Hotspur appearances has cemented his name in Spurs folklore; of that there is no doubt.

But now 27 years of age, Kane is still yet to win a trophy. And for a player of the Englishman's calibre, now seems the time to go an actually win a few.

As a result, Kane has made his desire to leave Tottenham in search for success apparent, now leaving Spurs looking at potential replacements for their talisman. But who could fill his gargantuan boots? Let's take a look.

8. Ivan Toney - Brentford

Okay, so he's a Championship striker, but so was Kane before becoming the main man at Tottenham.

Ivan Toney has stepped up from third tier football to the Championship better than anyone could have ever expected. Replacing Ollie Watkins at Brentford was dubbed a huge task, but the former Peterborough man has excelled and bettered his predecessor's performances - notching a record 31 Championship goals over the course of the season.

He isn't at all proven at the top level, but Toney has shown his capabilities in stepping up and, with a season like his 2020/21 behind him, don't bet against him making a splash in the Premier League - should he be there next term.

Is finding a replacement for Kane the time to take a risk, though? Probably not.

Suitability: 5/10

7. Mauro Icardi - PSG

Mauro Icardi's 2020/21 season has been littered with injury problems, resulting in just 19 Ligue 1 appearances for the Argentine.

Icardi has managed just seven league goals this campaign and, with the substantial shadow of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar over him, things aren't exactly going to plan for him in Paris.

The striker is linked with a move away and, while his proven prolific streak (124 goals in 219 appearances for Inter previously) has led to Spurs' interest in him, Icardi is rumoured to favour a move back to Italy.
