Tottenham news: Spurs ‘ready’ for last-gasp £50m transfer to finally replace Harry Kane | Football | Sport

Goals eluded Solanke during a two-year spell at Liverpool and across his first two campaigns at Bournemouth. But after going down to the Championship, the Cherries frontman found confidence that accompanied him back to the top flight.

Things have well and truly fallen into place for the once-capped England star this term, with only Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah bettering his 12-goal Premier League haul. Spurs, who opted against directly replacing Kane in the summer, are among those to have sat up and taken notice.

According to The Sun, Tottenham are ‘ready’ to act on their interest in Solanke and push through a move which could exceed £50million before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

It would take a huge offer for Bournemouth to sell their star striker with no time to find a replacement. But the south coast outfit are reportedly compiling a list of striker targets in France and Belgium in case Spurs leave them with no choice.

The Cherries have so far withstood pressure to part ways with Solanke, fending off interest from West Ham last summer and Newcastle United this month. The forward penned a new deal in September which contractually ties him to the Vitality Stadium until 2027.

Friday’s FA Cup defeat at home to Manchester City was the first time in 10 months that Tottenham failed to score in a game, with Postecoglou feeling the effect of captain and top-scorer Son’s absence.

Kane could also have made a difference if he was still at the club. The 30-year-old is setting Germany ablaze at Bayern and winning the race for the European Golden Boot.
