Chelsea are lining up a move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, but why don’t we make a move for Tottenham star Harry Kane?
Wilson has been in sensational form this term, scoring seven goals and providing four further assists, having overcome the effects of two serious knee ligament injuries in the last three years, and with Sarri having some real issues with our front line as Olivier Giroud has only scored once this season while Alvaro Morata has had a brief burst of goal-scoring form, but is not the full package.
And with Maurizio Sarri looking to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League and Europa League titles this season, the Daily Mirror website have claimed the Italian boss has had scouts watch Wilson on a number of occasions as he ponders a January move.[the_ad id=”238″]
However, we are one of the most financially sound teams in world football and have the ability to splash £200 million on just one player, and then a few more million to improve other key areas of the pitch, so rather than go for average strikers like Wilson, Sarri needs to make a cheeky move for Kane.
Kane is one of the best strikers on the planet, not just the Premier League and will guarantee Sarri 30-plus goals a season, something we have been missing for a number of years, and certainly since Diego Costa headed back to La Liga with Atletico Madrid.
Yes he picks up a few injuries here or there and needs the creativity behind him to finish goals, but he also works as hard for Spurs as any player in the Tottenham side, and with him in the squad, Spurs can win games at any moment.
And the fact Chairman Daniel Levy is a businessman means that we can actually complete a deal for Kane if they offer a fee in excess of £200 million, which is the fee most clubs will have to pay to acquire Kane from Tottenham.
And with strong reports in the media which all suggest Eden Hazard is heading to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, and Willian reportedly in talks to make a shock £70 million move to Spanish Champions Barcelona, our need to add more goals to the squad will be a must.
So if we are looking to land a world class striker to help Sarri win the Premier League, we need to stop being linked to strikers that may not have the quality to lead an attack like ours, and start splashing the money to land forwards like Kane, who will score goals for us on a regular basis.
Guys agree?[the_ad id=”238″]
