Tottenham: A report provides an update on the transfer of Romelu Lukaku.

Tottenham are interested in signing the Chelsea striker to replace Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, and a new report claims that the striker is interested in moving to north London this summer.

Who will take Harry Kane’s place at Tottenham?

Tottenham have a number of prospective Harry Kane replacements in mind, according to Italian media, with Arsenal‘s Folarin Balogun emerging as an unexpected new target, despite his uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium.

Balogun would be available for roughly €55 million (£47 million) this summer, but it would be a surprise if Spurs’ north London rivals are willing to do business this summer, and Spurs may be forced to go elsewhere.

Prior to Kane‘s departure, Gent forward Gift Orban, 21, was being evaluated, and the youngster might be a possible long-term successor, with the same article also suggesting Dusan Vlahovic and Lukaku as potential choices.

It has been revealed that the latter player will be available for a reduced fee this summer, allowing Ange Postecoglou to bolster other sections of his squad with the funds raised by moving Kane.

The 30-year-old is not in Mauricio Pochettino‘s plans for this season, potentially opening the door for a move to Tottenham, but he is not interested on staying in England, according to reports.

Saudi clubs are also interested in the Chelsea striker, but he will only contemplate a move there if he is unable to secure a move to a European club, thus Tottenham may end up being his preferred option.

If Postecoglou‘s team decides to make a formal proposal for the former Inter Milan player, he is anticipated to cost roughly €45 million (£39 million).

Why are Juventus fans so opposed to Romelu Lukaku?
It has been claimed that Juventus are interested in signing the Belgium international, with the player himself eager to transfer to Turin, but the fans have made it clear that they do not want him to join.

Juventus fans rushed their own pitch to protest the signing of the 6 foot 3 striker, supposedly due to his ties to Inter Milan, in order to deter him from heading to the Allianz Stadium.

However, bringing in the Antwerp-born striker as a replacement for Kane would be a touch disappointing, given there have been suggestions that his finest years are behind him, with only eight goals for Chelsea in his most recent Premier League campaign.

Lukaku has been described as “fantastic” by former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, but he is now 30 years old, and Spurs should be looking for a more long-term successor for the England captain.

Orban, who has been prolific in front of goal for Gent, would be an intriguing possibility, while Brighton & Hove Albion‘s Evan Ferguson, who has been described as a “born goalscorer” by Gary Lineker, could be an exciting move.
