Jamie Carragher reacts to Chelsea summer links with 32-goal forward
Jamie Carragher has claimed he can’t imagine Tottenham’s Harry Kane ending up at Chelsea this summer.
Kane, who has publicly claimed he needs an honest conversation with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy about his future, is under the microscope right now when it comes to transfer rumours about his future.
The Mirror states that Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in the 27-year-old’s signature, but he’s got his heart set on a move to fellow suitors Manchester City.
It looks like Man City have the edge if they are prepared to ramp up their interest, but it’s unclear on how much he would cost.
Pundit Carragher has stated he can’t see Spurs forward Kane moving across London to join Chelsea in any circumstance.
“Such is the rivalry between Spurs and Chelsea, Kane moving to Stamford Bridge looks too inflammatory to consider. He will be aware of that,” Carragher wrote in the Telegraph.
Kane is one of the world’s elite strikers, scoring 32 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions this campaign.
He even received a glowing reference from ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard earlier in the season:
“He [Kane] has matured as a player, he is a very impressive player. I think he is an intelligent player and that is why they are in a strong position,” Lampard said in November 2020, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
The Chronicle View
Kane would be a marquee signing for any team in the world this summer, and would surely make any buying club in the Premier League a favourite for the league crown. Man City could be unstoppable with him in their forward line.
Chelsea have two colossal games left in the season before they can start planning their summer window.
There aren’t too many pieces of the jigsaw left to fill in at Stamford Bridge, but the glaring obvious one if finding a prolific centre-forward that can score goals for fun, just like Kane.
