The Merseyside giants are prepared to battle Man City for the signature of top centre-forward Harry Kane even though the price for the frontman stays a big question. England international’s next destination has been the hot topic even before the previous PL campaign ended.
Kane has made his intentions clear to his club and would like to leave and pursue his dream of winning titles in the summer. One can only imagine what price tag Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will place on his prized asset. It certainly will smash all kinds of transfer records in the PL.
There are only a handful of clubs in the world that would meet those demands and very few in the PL. So to see Man City and Chelsea’s name in the mix isn’t surprising, but the Blues is considered out of the race in recent weeks. However, if Man City were thinking of leading the race, Reds have reportedly entered the chase for Harry and are ready to rival City’s riches.
The Reds may not necessarily need a top draw centre-forward, considering the outlay on Diogo Jota last summer as well as the presence of Roberto Firmino. Although Jota is for the long term, Firmino, 29, is searching for his best form for the best part of two campaigns now, and the Anfield hierarchy might consider a change there.
More importantly, it will be a blow for the Reds opportunities next campaign if they let a striker of Englishman’s calibre join their arch-rivals Man City. So despite knowing exactly how much Harry Kane would cost Liverpool, the Merseysiders have reportedly shown their interest and explore the chance to bring him to Liverpool.
