‘That can’t happen’: Paul Merson says ‘world-class’ player will ruin his legacy if he joins Chelsea
The striker has strongly been linked with a move away from North London as the future continues to look pretty bleak in terms of trophies.
It has been claimed that the Blues are one of those sides that have been linked with an extraordinary swoop for the England captain.
While there has been question marks still as they falter under Antonio Conte, Kane has continued to star this season.
This was on display yesterday, as he scored a brilliant goal to rescue three points for Spurs against Fulham.
With his abilities clear as one of the best strikers in world football, he would no doubt be an attractive prospect to the Chelsea ownership team to play up front.
Kane would ruin his legacy by joining Chelsea
Merson has claimed however that the transfer would be detrimental to Kane, after the good repertoire he has built up with the Spurs faithful.
He said: “Kane to Chelsea? That can’t happen. If he comes to Chelsea, he loses his legacy at Tottenham. Tottenham fans would go mad.
“For him to go over to Chelsea, it would be the next notch down from going to Arsenal. Chelsea and Tottenham don’t get on.”
The striker situation is certainly an interesting one at Stamford Bridge right now.
The Blues seem to be strengthening all around the number nine role without going out and getting an outright striker to boost their numbers up top.
David Datro Fofana has likely been brought in for the future, whilst Joao Felix and Christopher Nkunku, who is set to join at the end of the season, seem to favour a second striker or role just behind the frotnman.
