Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has been told ‘he would be stupid’ not to accept an offer to sign for Liverpool according to Chris Sutton.
The former Chelsea and Celtic striker believes that the England captain needs to move away from north London if he is to win titles.
Kane, 26, has scored 136 goals for the Lilywhtes in 198 games but is yet to lift any silverware at the club.
The Ballon d’Or nominee came tantalisingly close to recording some tangible success with the club after Spurs fell short in the Champions League final last season after they were defeated 2-0 by Liverpool.
Sutton believes that Kane simply would be unable to turn down the opportunity to sign for a club like Liverpool or Manchester City.
“We all understand he wants to win something. So if he wants to win something, I wouldn’t begrudge him a move,” he told BBC Sport.
“Spurs are a brilliant club, but at this moment in time, they are way behind the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
“If one of those clubs came in for him, if you were Harry Kane you would be stupid not to go.
“I can understand the predicament he is in..
“But if he wants to win the Premier League, then he should move on and go to a club who have better chance of winning it than Spurs do.”
What RTK has to say
These comments need to be taken with a pinch of salt.
It is by no means indicating that Liverpool are set to make a move for Kane nor does it imply the Reds should considering an approach for the Englishman.
The former Leyton Orient and Leicester City star is undoubtedly one of the finest strikers in world football and with Kane entering the peak years of his career, it would most likely take a nine-figure sum to lure his away from Spurs.
Liverpool have shown that they tend to avoid paying eye-watering sums on blockbuster signings which would imply that the club have no intention of making Kane a Reds player anytime soon.
Meanwhile, City remain a different proposition and it remains to be seen whether Pep Guardiola would consider making a club-record bid to tempt Kane to the Etihad Stadium.
